Testimonials for The Reading RulesⒸ
I’ve been in classes with students that had other 3rd grade teachers. When they read out loud for the whole class to hear, they tended to stumble over words and often mispronounced them…It was through this program that Ms. Williams enforced such important aspects to the sounds of words… All in all, having developed such reading skills is a gift. I feel that if I wasn’t introduced to the reading rules in the first place, I would probably sound more like a foreigner. Now I’m at that level where I can talk in a sophisticated way to sound more experienced and intelligible.”Andrew Brunclik – Former Student of TRR
I learned to read using the reading rules in Ms. William’s class starting in 1st grade. This was way back in 2001 and I had no idea back then how useful the knowledge and skill I obtained would help me accomplish some of my most desired goals today…No matter how simple it may seem, learning from the reading rules greatly impacted my life and has made a huge difference in what I have been able to achieve ever since. Without it I would not be where I am today. Today I am a college student at CSULB studying Aerospace Engineering. I will be starting my 4th year in college next year in spring after finishing my semester long internship opportunity that I have with SpaceX this fall and winter. I have already had a previous internship experience at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center 2 summers ago. Neither of the internship experiences that I have had so far could have been possible without knowing how read effectively.”Cristian Acosta – Former Student of TRR
We came from Korea, not knowing any English at all and it was very hard for all of us. Because English was not my first language, it was very hard to learn and understand the language. There were so many rules to follow and many exceptions to those rules, and for a six year old child who had only spoken, read, and written in Korean, it was a difficult process. However, through TRR I was able to learn and become fluent in English…I am the first person in my family to attend college and am now a first year student at the University of California, San Diego as an Applied Mathematics major.”Jenny Kim – Former Student of TRR
The techniques that Ms. Williams used to teach me in the 3rd grade are still with me today. The Reading Rules played a vital role in laying down a foundation for a lifelong, avid love of reading… Initially, I stumbled over words and read at a snails pace, but by the end of the year I was fluently reading any passage that was thrown at me.Today, I can enjoy reading with a confidence and an attentiveness that would have never been possible without the skills I learned so many years ago. And for that I am deeply grateful to Ms. Williams for The Reading Rules and her highly apt and effective methods.”Cristian Acosta – Former Student of TRR
What Are The Reading RulesⒸ?
The Reading Rules program is a phonics-based program in which common letter/sound combinations and patterns found in the English language are taught and addressed, as opposed to being written-off as irregularities in the English language.
The Reading Rules transform these irregular sound/spelling patterns into dependable and recognizable “Rules”. These rules are internalized and become 23 consistent and highly reliable patterns for decoding the English language.
The Reading Rules can be used in the classroom with a teacher or at home with a parent or tutor.
