READS Parent/Child Reading Comprehension System Review

My first grader thankfully, adores reading yet I would like to keep it that way.  As she learns bigger vocabulary words, etc., I have noticed that she is getting slightly frustrated and has been speeding through her reading materials and not taking the time like she used to.  I was so excited to have learned about what EGM Educational Systems, LLC has to offer early readers.  We are currently utilizing the Reads Parent/Child Reading Comprehension System.  It has been a great experience for both of us.  She is encouraged to read better with greater willingness to communicate her understanding of the topic.

Here are some more details regarding the READS program as seen on the website:
  • Designed for elementary grades 1-4
  • Effective for readers below or at grade level
  • Conforms to Common Core States Standards
  • Improve children's ability to express themselves verbally by promoting conversations between parent and child.
  • Works with any reading material
  • Provides an easy method to verify comprehension
  • Helps develop critical thinking skills
  • Makes reading homework fun and rewarding for both parent and child.
Here is what the READS program contains:
  • 30 Question Cards
  • READS Parent's Manual
  • Rewards Chart
  • Stickers
  • Magic Finger
  • Reading Guide Strip
  • Speedy Speller
  • Reusable Storage Pouch
She really enjoyed the magic finger and the reading guide strip.  We also use the reading guide strip for Bible reading which is very helpful to her since text can be smaller print.  The magic finger helps a child track the text word for word while the reading guide strip highlights a line to keep them focused on what is being read! Such an awesome concept.  Rewarding her with stickers for the sticker chart is also a very nice incentive.  She made sure not to miss a day, love it!

We basically used the READS program every chance we got with her reading materials.   She is now into mini chapter books, so I took that as an opportunity to use the question cards.  She really enjoys talking about topics.  She is so eager to whip out the program.  So happy for her.

The READS Parent/Child Reading Comprehension System can be purchased for $19.95.  It all comes contained in a pouch to keep the materials together.  No worries of losing anything, providing you put everything back into the pouch.

We look forward to continuing with the READS program.  I anticipate that I will be using it with my preschooler when she hits first grade.

Have you ever used this program with your child?
