      Great for a struggling reader

      My son is a first grader who was struggling with reading. I purchased this to start him off and now he's on grade level in reading. I definitely will accredit his success to the R.E.A.D Curriculum Notebook. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

      Awesome reading programme

      I love using this reading curriculum with my preschooler. It's so colourful and engaging!!! We've just completed the first two weeks and I can see that she's already confident. The activities are Monday to Thursday and they really emphasize on the key skills for that week. Thank you once again to the creators for putting together this wonderful resource. I have bought other products too from edzone and they're all great timesavers.

      Kindergarten Ready

      I purchased to help support my daughter's reading and phonetics online learning. I love the worksheets and she is. It intimidated by them. She works to sound it out and sees the connection with the words based on the sounds.

      Thanks for creating this.
