Nita Brist in Washington State shares her sons’ successes.
I just would like people to know how wonderful it is to have something at last that works for the child!
The twins’ story
Kennon and Kameron are 10-year-old twins who have had trouble with reading since 1st grade. Phonics just did not work. Last year, they did not improve in their reading level all year.
We started Edublox in June, and already in the first nine weeks of school, they have increased over 2 1/2 years.
Because their focus is so much better, we have less homework, and what we have goes quickly. Their spelling has greatly improved, and learning new words has become a game, not the dreaded chore it once was.
In November, the boys both got to call me from their reading class, because Kameron read at the 4th-grade level at 175 words a minute and answered all the questions correctly. Kennon read at 4th-grade level, 166 words a minute, with all the questions answered correctly. So they will get bumped a reading level.
Bentley is 14 years old. He has always been an excellent reader but has had problems with focusing and getting the information from his thoughts down on paper in an orderly manner. There often was not enough time in one evening to get his homework all done because he couldn’t keep on task.
Bentley started Edublox this last summer. He was able to do all his work independently this quarter at school and with very little homework left. Bentley has noticed a great improvement in his balance. This has even helped him in riding horses.
Thanks so much for all you do for us.
