Timberdoodle's Review
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 in 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 student 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 get started, including a money-back 30-day return guarantee.

From the Publisher:
With Happy Cheetah Reading you can teach your student to read, effortlessly, in just a few minutes a day. Happy Cheetah Reading develops successful readers based on experience, research, and practiced methods.

With Happy Cheetah Reading, your student always starts listening to the full story, without focusing on rules or individual sounds. Because your student knows the plot, and has the context in mind, all the pieces come together without confusion. With the story as the foundation, your student learns the individual details of reading, such as proper spelling and grammatical cues like quotation marks, in the context of the story. Each smaller element is already included in the big picture. Nothing is out of order; everything is linked. These links rapidly build knowledge, without confusion. Like looking at the box before assembling a puzzle—there's a framework in place.

Happy Cheetah Reading always connects new information to what students already know. Recent studies show that if new information does not link to old, the brain dumps the new. The brain remembers things in context; it’s not wired to remember random tidbits. The guided readers follow a specific progression. They sound right and make sense from the beginning, as students build on what they already know. Happy Cheetah Reading combines the big picture with the smaller details in order to teach reading ... simply, easily, and quickly.

Different children have different giftings. Happy Cheetah Reading works with all students because it allows for all different types of giftings. A multi-sensory and multimodality program, it uses many ways to create links in the brain. Even if your student doesn't have one or two ways to link information, that’s okay—the brain compensates. The Happy Cheetah Reading Complete System includes copywork and drawing, visual recognition, auditory reads, and kinesthetic manipulation of letters. Happy Cheetah Reading gives your child's brain the tools and the permission to create the links that it needs, as your child stays relaxed and interested.
Lessons: A few sections are student-paced rather than lesson-based, but the course is approximately 501 lessons in total.

Love This!!

This program has really helped our little one develop a love of reading. It is the first program we have used where the readers make sense instead of silly stories just using words the student knows. It is colorful and very user friendly. It is open and go. We wish we had found it sooner. Our little one really enjoys the routine from day to day knowing what to expect from the program. In addition, from a parents stand point we love how the program has th student rereading stories to build confidence. We would highly recommend this to others.

Awesome program, wish it was a little cheaper

This program is a new addition to our homeschool this year. While it’s only been a few weeks, I’m already impressed with it. I’m using it with my Kindergartener, and my 2nd Grader. I like that it’s open and go, requiring no prep time. And clearly a lot of thought was put into the design. They are short simple lessons that include a lot of important activities to build reading skills. The price tag is hefty (the only reason I removed a star), but I am a fan!
