love music and I think the songs are a great
selection for children. Teaching them to read
with them is a real bonus and being able to change
the speed is helpful. “
“I use songs with my class
all of the time. I tend to use the older
children’s songs because they move along at a slower
pace. These are like those songs and perfect
for teaching phonics and reading.”

What a great idea!
Finger-point reading. I have always thought
that children memorized the songs, not the words.
Love them all, By the Beach, perfect for teaching
the difficult sh, ch, th wh , combo’s."
“I use these mainly for language themes. Life on the Farm , and What Would We Do If? are favorites. Kids act out them out. Will send short videos.”

As 7th grade Language Arts teachers, we were delighted when we found your book Greek and Latin Roots. We have been struggling with "to spell or not to spell" in 7th grade. The traditional word lists seemed to be working for fewer and fewer students. Because our year long focus is on vocabulary strategies, not just rule memorization, this book fit right in. We have used it all year with our 7th graders and hear positive comments from them (amazing!) and from other core content teachers who are picking up these roots in content vocabulary as well. We are considering using Book 2 with 8th grade next year. Thank you for filling this need so well.
I've used some of your products with my son who has dyslexia. His reading has really improved. Thank you!
I am a huge fan of your materials. I have used them with students of all ages and have had great success. Keep producing quality reading materials for students!
Thank you...I believe this program, Fluency and Phonics, has made the real difference in my son's improvement!
With Kind Regards,
Mr. Glavach-I just wanted to thank you for the great resources you are sharing on the SchoolhouseTeachers.com website. I wouldn't call my son a struggling reader, but like many young boys, he has the energy level and attention span of a hummingbird. The short, focused lessons are just the ticket for him, and his reading has improved, as well as his spelling. The helpful hints are... helpful! Again- thanks so much for your program.

"Used the third grade Quick Reading Intervention last year with my struggling students...Fantastic Results!! It will be part of the whole class curriculum this year!"
Dear Dr. Glavach:
I noticed your advertisement in the International Reading Association's newspaper. As a reading consultant, I continually search for innovative programs and best practice reading instruction. I believe I have found just that in your free programs. I printed a copy of How to Short-Circuit Reading Intervention and am very excited about implementing the program with our school's struggling middle schoolers. I completely agree with the features and benefits outlined in your book; I especially love the program's consistency and ease of use, an ease built upon cutting edge research on learning.
By far, I most appreciate the free offer, since teachers never have enough funds for all they need in their classrooms. In addition, your prices for other programs are wonderfully low and so are accessible to almost all. Thank you so much for this opportunity to enhance my reading program - it's truly a wonderful, philanthropic service for our youths and their futures.
Love the phonics books (Phonics, Grades2+, 3+, & 4+).
I am very impressed with the Core Reading program. The students love it. During their independent choice work time, they ask to work on the packets. After Lesson 7 or 8 I almost had to hide the upcoming lesson packets because students were taking them off the shelf before I had a chance to introduce the lesson -- to work on them on their own! Each lesson has a similar format, which allows the student to be self-directed and comfortable with what is coming next.
One-on-one time with each student is built into each lesson. This has been a real treat for me as it has been completely "doable." The 2-3 minutes spent with each student is invaluable; the other students are so involved with other Core activities that management problems are almost non-existent -- these struggling readers are engaged!
