Rime to Read

Is your child having trouble learning to read?

If the problem is with short vowels, then I would like to introduce you to Rime to Read. Rime to Read is a series of short books, each focusing on one short vowel sound. If your child cannot read the short vowel word, then they can click on it and the computer will read it to you. The books can also be printed out, for use when the computer isn't available. The words rime, making it easier for your child to decode them. All sight words are listed in the back of each book and if your child doesn't recognize them, then you will need to read them to him/her.

I think that this program might be helpful for very beginning students. The parent must be active in the learning process (reading sight words). I find them useful for practice but not as a complete program.

If you have a beginning reader, check Rime to Read out for yourself and see if it is something that might help you.
