Where there’s a Will there’s a way
When Will (Year 6) started Reading Plus his reading proficiency (rate, comprehension and vocabulary) was at Year 3 level. He lacked confidence as a reader, but he believed he could be a better reader.
In five weeks he has read 15,000 words, improved his reading rate by 24 words/minute and increased his comprehension to 86% in all eight skill areas. He is already a quarter of the way to his Year 6 target.
What a winner!
Will says: ‘It is helping already and the positive reinforcement the program offers with badges/improved scores etc. really helps too.’
Mum says: ‘I think the penny has dropped! Persistent effort = positive outcomes.’February, 2022
Harry (Year 5) loves the stories he reads on Reading Plus. His speed, with comprehension, has jumped 56 words per minute in 10 days (Year 6 speed).
Out of the eight skill areas he only needs help with 2 of the 25 sub-skill areas. Reading Plus provides all the resources for us to help him understand ‘Recognising the Author’s Purpose’ and ‘Judging Validity’. To achieve this, Harry reads for 10-15 minutes, five times a week.February, 2022
