Touch-Type Read and Spell - Save up to 43%

Touch-Type Read and Spell - Save up to 43%

Touch-Type Read and Spell (TTRS) is a multi-sensory course that teaches touch-typing skills in ways that also help kids improve their reading and spelling. It does that, in part, by having kids drill with actual, carefully selected words (hid-red-bed), rather than purely mechanical keystroke combinations (juj-kik-lol, etc.).

As an extra benefit, TTRS incorporates structured word lists based on the work of Orton and Gillingham, so it's especially useful for learners with dyslexia and other learning difficulties.

Members can get TTRS for $79.95 for one teacher and student (a 39% savings) or a family license for up to four students for only $199.95 (a 43% savings).

Think You Can Recite Times Tables & Evade a Tiger? - Weds., 10/23, 11AM PT

Think You Can Recite Times Tables & Evade a Tiger?

Adrenaline is a beautiful biochemical. It's there to bolster us in stressful or dangerous situations. But it stops our math brain in its tracks. And yet, we expect our kids to go against their own biological wiring and use parts of their brain that go dark while in that "fight-or-flight" state. This gets at the heart of what Math Anxiety is, and in this webinar, Robert Ahdoot from YAY Math will discuss what we can do about it.
