Publisher Description:

The first Student Reader in the series, At Bat (Level 1-A) was created to teach very struggling older readers, or beginning readers up to mid-year first grade level. (1.1 reading level)

About the Right Brain Readers: These specialized, tailor-made Right Brain Student Readers were created by Dianne Craft, Special Education teacher, for her students struggling with reading and particularly auditory processing problems. The teaching method used in these Right Brain Student Readers is truly one of a kind. Anyone can use the Readers and find success!

This carefully engineered, Orton Gillingham-based phonics method, introduces sounds and Sight Words in a manner that ensures success for even the most struggling student. Experience has shown that this Right Brain Visual Reading Method will work when others havent. The Right Brain Reader uses the imbedding technique to teach phonemes with picture and color, directly on the reading pages. This imbedding method takes all the stress out of memorizing sounds.

The Instant Success Right Brain Sight Word cards created specifically for each story, are included with each Student Reader. The result is that word memorization becomes dramatically easier for the student. And the bonus is that they will be able to SPELL all the Sight Words easily, because the words will be stored in the students photographic memory!

Research has shown that by using the colored reading transparencies (included in the front of each Reader) the stress on the childs visual system is greatly reduced. Reversals are much less frequent, as are wiggling words and skipping words.

According to pre and post testing plus teacher and parent reports, these are the BEST reading books for kids with dyslexia and struggling readers, hands down!

Category Description for Craft Right Brain Readers 1st Grade:

Designed to accompany the Right Brain Phonics program, these readers are also a valuable supplement to any reading program for your struggling reader. In the Readers, the new Sight Word for each story is found at the beginning of the story, as well as on the accompanying sight word cards. Uniquely, the stories themselves do not include picture clues to reduce student guessing. Worth mentioning, most of the Dolch Pre-Primer Flashcards (#26281) are included in the Sight Words with the Level 1 Reader series. Detailed teaching instructions are included in each reader SC. As a side note, You Rock (Level 1-C) word card contains an angel face/halo on the first "O" and a mean face, devil horns on the second "O". ~100 pgs. ~ Deanne

Category Description for Right Brain Phonics:

Originally developed for children with dyslexia, this 30-45 minute-per-day phonics program may be exactly what your struggling reader needs. Popular "learning glitch" speaker and author, Dianne Craft, has created this valuable resource to enable struggling learners to become capable readers using right brain strategies. While left brain learners learn phonics best through a traditional program that uses black and white illustrations and multiple repetitious activities (including writing word lists and verbalizing sounds), right brain learners tend to learn best through color and visual stimuli. Color coding, pictures, emotion, and humor help them grasp concepts. They often "take a picture" in their mind, which allows them to quickly recall (and learn!) what is taught.

Recommended for children who are more than one year behind in reading, this book provides introductory pages that include an orientation to the program, a quick word recognition grade placement assessment, daily lesson plans (4 days per week with day 5 devoted to brain training activities found in the Brain Integration Therapy Manual), and word lists containing primary through intermediate words. While it is possible to use this without the above-mentioned manual, families will find valuable benefits from using both programs in tandem.

Also provided are phonetic sounds embedded in pictures to enhance learning for the right brain learner. Word lists are divided into two parts. The first part focuses on consonants/double consonants and blends with color-coded target sounds. Part two introduces multi-syllable words (2, 3 and 4 syllables). In the second part, students are expected to read the same word lists daily for 20 minutes to solidify learning. Each page is dedicated to one sound and provides ample white space to prevent an overload effect for struggling learners. This is a solid phonics program which will quickly become a favored resource for families of struggling learners.

Highly recommended to accompany the program are the Right Brain Phonics Flash Cards and the Right Brain Sight Word Flash Cards. Designed to be used with the program, they could also be a stand-alone resource for any child who struggles with learning their phonetic sounds or sight words. The Phonics Flash Card set contains 40 durable, 4" x 6" three-hole punched flash cards. Vowel, consonants and letter combinations sounds are superimposed upon a picture to represent the sound being learned. An instruction card is also included. The Sight Word Flash Cards set contains 36 sight words plus instructions. The glossy durable cards measure 8 ½" x 2 ½", are brightly illustrated, and most contain sentences on the back side which relate to the word illustrations. Words included are to, he, two, it's, use, she, say, are, was, all, one, any, put, city, what, here, tell, said, were, many, this, they, have, does, must, with, some, happy, which, their, there, after, about, through, little, and because. Three-hole punched for your convenience (see our colored book rings #35890). ~ Deanne

Which set of sight words flash cards comes with this book? The PrePrimer sight words set?
User on Aug 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Each Reader includes Right Brain Sight Reading Cards made specially for that book and a colored reading transparency to help reduce letter reversals and eye fatigue. Families purchasing the level 1 readers, will not need to purchase the Pre-Primer Dolch Sight Word Cards.

In other words, this Reader includes a portion of the Pre-Primer Dolch Sight Word Cards.
