Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR)—Read the review
We have implemented this program for intervention 2nd-5th grades in small groups during workshop/intervention time. Our resource room has also used the program for their 5th grade students. We have seen an increase in scores on the CORE test and fluency after the lessons have been taught. The teachers find it teacher friendly and the students have told me they enjoy it and it has helped them.
