Reading Program

Whether you are a proactive grand/parent, a homeschool family or a tutor looking for a great program to use to enhance your business, JoyFully Read! is the way to go!! Why choose JoyFully Read!? Because it’s easy to learn, fun to teach and user friendly (look at our results)! We believe in paper and pencil, games, music (at the beginning/intermediate levels) and color! We like fun, wholesome stories and making it easy for ourselves as teachers to focus on what’s happening with the student’s feelings, capacity and progress more than wondering what’s coming up next in the “lesson”. WE plan it all in simple, repetitive 30 minute sessions followed by a 15 min. game and lists of game ideas. Learn from a 45 min. DVD how you can be your student’s hero/teacher! Start today by clicking PURCHASING PROGRAM MATERIALS, and get started…YOU can do it!

Reading Classes

If you’d like your child to participate in a 12-16 week class (class sizes range from 4-6 students), this is perfect for you! We offer “semester” long classes in summer, fall and spring (basically following your local school calendar). These classes are only offered for students who are working in the 1st “beginners” and 2nd Steps “intermediate” to Reading, and 2nd Step graduates “transition”. There are no “advanced” classes (3rd parts 1 and 2) as it becomes much more of a “catered to each individual learner’s experience” at those levels. Come join the fun!

“My 5 year old had been struggling with her phonics lessons all through kindergarten. And she hated her lessons! After a few weeks with Joyfully Read!™ preschool reading class she was asking to play the games, sing the songs and practice reading.”

“I was a 65 year old man who had a low second grade level reading capacity.  I was always careful not to let anyone know about my situation.  I was always on guard so no one would find out because I knew I would be embarrassed and humiliated…I have learned things I was never taught in school.  Learning to read has changed my life because I now can read and spell better.  I feel like I can now fill out an application, if I need to, read the newspaper or a complete book, and feel good about myself.  I would recommend this course to all ages who are struggling with their reading.  JoyFully Read!™ is very professional and encouraging.”  (E.T., A 65 year old happy reader)
