Learn to Read

What we are about

We are two teachers who are determined to provide teaching videos, guidance and materials to help everyone lean to read

Reading research has long shown us that we need to explicitly teach reading skills. The key remembering the skills is to purposefully embed the sounds, letter combinations and skills in a sequential way into story, visuals, and actions.

We remember what we think about most.  We think about things that interest us. Engaging emotion and interest through story makes these skills something for students to think about well after the lesson is over.  Using motions to engage motor memory as well as visuals to help organize and categorize skills help students be active in engaging their memory. 

For each skill we provide direct instruction of skills through teaching videos, stories, tand explanations. We provide practice with games, little books, word, phrase and sentence lists, fluency pyramids and more!
