TOS Review~~Read Naturally

Read Naturally was founded by a Special Education teacher Candyce Ihnot and her husband Tom.  Their program is based on a unique system to help struggling readers.

The program we got to review was the One Minute Reader.  This program is used to help children with their reading fluency.  First a child reads the story alone out loud, then with the CD, then alone again.  Then when they feel confident they read it out loud to an adult.  At the end of the story there is a very short quiz to test the memory recall.  One Minute Reader has six different levels, you can go to their website and view samples to see what is best for your child.

You can purchase the One Minute Reader starter kit for $24.95, which includes one book, audio CD, timer, pencil, and instructional DVD.


We also received the Level 3 Disasters (book and CD) to review.

I really wish I would of heard of this product when we first started homeschooling!  The stories interesting enough to hold the attention of my kids, but not too long where they get board with them.
For review purposes we had Hannah use this.  She has auditory processing disorder and really struggles in remembering what she reads.  The fact that she can hear, see it and touch it really has helped her.
She did not get upset when the timer went off and time was up.  She learned to take her time and read through the story.  As the weeks went on she picked up the pace.  It was really amazing seeing how well this worked...right before my eyes.  It was the best Christmas present I could of received.

 If your child struggles with reading, remembering what they read, or how fast they read this is for you!  We are defiantly sold!!

As a part of TOS Homeschool review crew we received the above products free in exchange for my honest review.
