Getting Ready: Handwriting and Early Reading Workbook
Because the research proves that copy work is integral to helping students learn to read quickly and easily, that is where the Happy Cheetah Reading System starts. It then moves to phonics from handwriting, where students learn the connection between sounds and written letters.
The Getting Ready workbook introduces your students to printing.
It uses a developmentally-appropriate sequence for capital and lowercase letters, so all beginning writers learn efficiently and quickly.
Getting Ready also uses a unique font. Dr. Karen developed this font to address handwriting issues that she regularly sees in her clinical practice. You can prevent letter reversals from the very beginning!
After learning to print all the individual letters, students move into beginning copy work. Next, they start to work on hearing individual sounds in words (also called phonemic awareness) and finally practice writing numerals.
About Happy Cheetah
If your child struggles with reading, if you tried other programs that only led to a sense of failure in your child, or if you are working with a child and his progress has stalled for far too long - before you throw in the towel, consider Happy Cheetah.
Using current research on reading and how the brain learns, Happy Cheetah lays a foundation and builds slowly, using repetition to build fluency.
This program focuses on one skill at a time and uses copy work to give your students plenty of time to absorb the details. The success with remedial readers, special needs readers, and even children for whom English is a second language is impressively quick.
Children will find Happy Cheetah's collection of funny stories and simple questions engaging, and you will find their progress satisfying. Happy Cheetah includes everything you need to start, including a money-back 30-day return guarantee.
