I love it!
21 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is exactly how I learned how to read. My grandmother gave me what we call the "AT list" You know, words that end it "-at" like, bat, fat, sat, you know. This is exactly the kind of reading this show teaches. And it teaches family values too! I think we should incorporate it into school cirriculums. I know I would! (And I'm a teaching assistant!)

I spent a lot of time last year teaching children how to read, but using the methods described in the teacher's book just got the kids more and more confused. So I brought a game of Scrabble to school with me, and followed what they do on the show, I based the entire lesson on one sound, or taught them how silent "e" can change vowel sounds, like pin and pine or plan and plane. And the kids started learning! it was fantastic!

Great for kids. 9 out of 10!
