SuperSpeed: Game of Champ Readers! Improving student reading speed, of all serious educational problems, is one of the easiest to solve. Only 100 words, sight words, make up over 50% of the words students will ever read. Many of these words cannot be sounded out phonetically and thus must be known at sight, instantly. The more quickly students can read sight words, the faster they will read. Superspeed reading games developed by Whole Brain Teachers of America and classroom tested by hundreds of educators, provide a simple, extremely entertaining way to help K-12 students improve their reading speed.

Read Out Loud When he first started putting letters together into words, your child spent lots of time learning to "decode"--make sense of--text on the page. Now that second grade is here, he'll be working on a new phrase, "fluency,"--the ability to read smoothly and at a pace that promotes understanding of what is being read. Fluency, along with comprehension, is the ultimate goal for readers of all ages, but can be especially difficult to achieve at first when a young learner is just beginning to read. To help your child develop fluency, provide him with repeated opportunities to listen to good reading, and to listen to himself reading, too. In this way, he’ll develop a good sense of what fluency sounds like, and model his own reading in the same manner.
