Reading Buddy 2.0 provides a thorough grounding in learning how to read, enabling students to master a very limited set of universal rules that govern how English words are read. With almost no memorization, students will learn to read and to spell more than 1050 of the most common English words. This remarkable reading feat exceeds the vocabulary of most second graders. When a student's reading readiness has been verified, most home school students will reliably be able to learn to read within a matter of months.
Reading Buddy 2.0 provides a well-researched framework for assessing students' readiness for learning to read English, for specific and appropriate remediation (when they are not quite ready), and extensive training when they are ready. Going well beyond phonics, Reading Buddy 2.0 incorporates lessons, practice sessions, stories and games to ensure that the underlying principles are so well understood that students are able to be fluent readers in record time.
By carefully documenting the students' responses, Reading Buddy 2.0 provides teachers with continually updated records of their students' performance. It also produces analyses that pinpoint the areas that need remediation and the optimal activity pathway for the student who is learning how to read.
Reading Buddy 2.0 was created and tested by a team of professional reading teachers and cognitive psychologists with a total of more than 75 years' experience.
