Thank you, so much, for your email. What super customer service you have! I am delighted with your program. I teach 3 year olds in a Catholic school, and some are on lessons 10 or 12. Others are still on lessons 4 or 5. I have ten children in my class, and some came to me already knowing the sounds of most letters. For those children, I was able to move quickly through the first few lessons, while others need more time to grasp blending. I only have the children for 3 hours each day, and none on the weekends or holidays. As well as they are progressing in that short amount of time, I wish I could spend more time with them. I have the parents reinforcing sounds at home, but I would rather be the one doing it. Now, I won't see my little ones until Jan.6 and I'm praying they retain what they learned thus far.
I have taught in Catholic schools for over 20 years in grades Pre-K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades and used various Reading programs/series. In addition, I have tutored children in every subject K through 9th grades. My own child is 22. I wish I had known about your program 20 years ago! I am excited to see my little 3 year olds at school learning phonemic awareness so easily and in only a few minutes each day! I wonder how far they could have come if I had them in school all day - I fully believe some would be reading sentences by now.
So, thank you for your program - I am amazed. And - thank you for the follow up! I apologize for the long email, but I just can't say enough about Children Learning Reading.
