Kindergartner that thinks he's not smart, despite him being EXTREMELY BRIGHT! Unfortunately, he's not being taught the code-breakers of the written English language. His school is teaching him a confusing mixture of whole-word memorization (popularly known as Site Words) and non-sensical, partial phonics, so the poor kid is struggling with reading. And rightly so! He is not getting taught clean, highly rational English! Reading Bears classes fix this by using The Spalding Method to quickly re-establish his confidence in his brilliant ability to Read, Write, Spell, and Comprehend English!
Third Grader that has suffered the negative educational-consequences of the COVID pandemic mixed with non-rational English / Language Arts curriculum that left him behind. Being pulled out of his foundational, early elementary classes had left him feeling like maybe reading wasn't for him. He was never introduced to the first 70 Phonograms, nor to any of the 29 Rules of the English language that are quite simple, and children learn them swiftly! Reading Bears classes leverage the time-testing Spalding Method for learning to Read, Write, Spell & Comprehend and these classes quickly remedy those deficiencies and make his education whole.
Second Grader who is EXCEPTIONALLY SMART, yet has not been given the tools to find success with all his subjects in school. Since his English / Language Arts curriculum failed to teach him foundational basics of English, the poor little guy struggled to read instructions during Math homework, followed by many other daily struggles that left him feeling diminished . The Reading Bears classes leverage The Spalding Method, which is rational, highly engaging, and fun. In his Reading Bears classes, he learned clear, logical rules like the two-letter set "ou" has 4 different sounds it makes in the English language. Armed with knowledge such as this, he can easily know that words like "you" are not "trick" words as his daytime school taught him. Instead he now knows the English language is actually highly-logical and the word "you" CAN actually be sounded out!

6-year-old that moved to the USA from Europe. Came to Reading Bears with pretty good Kindergartener skills but needed some help with English pronunciation and spelling since his first language is Polish. In his Reading Bears classes, he learned foundational items like in English there are 5 jobs of the Silent Final E and he rapidly was taught how to differentiate each job in different word spellings. He wasn't learning that at his daytime school. Reading Bears classes fast-tracked him to above-grade-level in America.

REGISTRATION for English Genie I - FOUNDATIONS IN READING COURSE
English Genie I - Foundations in Reading Course is a Reading / English / Language Arts class that is highly logical and time-tested. The Spalding Method for teaching Speech, Spelling, Writing, and Reading is the bedrock of the Reading Bears curriculum and allows for rapid-learning for both children and adults.
The Spalding Method is widely used throughout government-run (public), charter, and private elementary schools in the Western and Midwestern United States.
Arizona State University conducted studies to compare Spalding Method elementary schools to control-group, non-Spalding Method elementary schools, and found that learning and test scores in Reading and Language Arts are exceptionally higher at Spalding-taught schools, compared to the other schools. The study also concluded that success with The Spalding Method was even exceptionally high at the schools that had higher rates of disadvantaged students, including those who entered the US and did not speak English. The Spalding Method has proven wildly effective at rapidly teaching foreign-language students how to Speak, Read, Write, and Spell in English and many would argue, The Spalding Method is the best method. ~The Writing Road to Reading, 6th Ed., The Spalding Method for Teaching Speech, Spelling, Writing, and Reading. 1957, 2012 Romalda Bishop Spalding; Mary E North, PhD
