Reading and Learning Has Become a Pleasure
For me, as a homeschool mom, it’s amazing to see how my children’s confidence has “exploded”. Since we started Edublox, they pick up every little book and magazine because they WANT TO READ. They WANT to go to the library. Fights about reading is a far-fetched memory… reading and learning has now become a pleasure in our house.

Daughter Doing Wonderfully In School
The end of the second week, I dropped her off in her classroom. Her teacher broke away for a parent she was talking to and ran after me down the hallway. She was so excited that she could barely speak. She’d never before experienced that rapid improvement. Our daughter is doing wonderfully in school. She’s confident and helping other struggling students. She’s a voracious reader (reads with expression) and loves to write as well…

Handwriting No Longer an Issue
After thirty hours, I can honestly say his handwriting is no longer an issue. It has become automatic for him to write neatly and legibly, whereas before, his writing varied depending on the day and the amount of effort he was willing to put in to be neat. This has also positively affected his ability to compose a written paragraph…

Now Reading with Ease and Confidence
Reading used to be so much work for him that he didn’t enjoy it and only read when he had to. Now he reads with ease and confidence. As a matter of fact, he enjoys reading so much that it isn’t unusual to see him reading for pleasure now. The first time I heard him say he was “going to bed a little early so he could read before going to sleep” was music to my ears!!

Overcoming a Spelling Problem
I feel as if part of my daughter’s mind was trapped, and Edublox set her free… She is now almost an intuitive speller. Really, it’s a miracle. Six months ago, her spelling tested at a Kindergarten level, and is now at a 6th grade level. This is just still so amazing to all of us who have struggled with her.

Reading and Spelling Greatly Improved
Phonics just did not work. Last year they did not improve in their reading level all year. We started Edublox in June and already in the first 9 weeks of school they have increased over 2 1/2 years…. Their spelling has greatly improved and learning new words has become a game, not the dreaded chore it once was.

Progress After Three Months
You could tell him to look at it closely, sound it out, etc… and he would just keep on guessing. Sometimes the word wouldn’t even look like the words he was guessing. Now he only guesses about every fifth word and if I tell him he has read the word wrong, he’ll look at it again and most times be able to tell me what the word is.

Reading Up by 2 Years in Less than 6 Months
He finished the school year on real high, his reading age went up by 2 years in less than 6 months and he is now making far fewer mistakes and is also self correcting himself when it doesn’t make sense, his spelling age improved as well and he also did really well in the end of year exams with his best results in most subjects.

Sean’s Reading Really Leaped
Sean’s reading really leaped between the 7th and 8th month of Edublox…. I have been able to get out books that I have always wanted to read together with him, but used to look at them and knew they were above his reading level and had to put them away. But now I have been able to get out those books and he can read them.

Reading Was Tortuous, Now Sean Is Devouring Books
He is devouring books at a rapid rate and it is a joy to see. He is keen to discuss the books he has read to me and he obviously has understood what he has read. Six months ago reading a book was tortuous for him because even if he read it his reading was so faltering and full of mistakes that he couldn’t comprehend the text.
