What Parents and Teachers are saying:

"As a homeschool mom, I was hesitant about "100 Easy Lessons" because of the lack of reinforcement activities provided by the curriculum itself. Once we found GlimmerCat's packets, it was an easy choice for us to continue with using it with our kindergartner. He has not only done beautifully with "100 Easy Lessons," but has thrived with these additional packets because of our ability to reinforce the lessons with quick and easy worksheets (that he actually enjoys!), crafts, and the flash cards that make reviewing the sounds he's learned easy to do no matter where we are. We have laminated the flash cards with each packet, and keep them handy for waiting rooms, long car rides, and restaurants, and have enjoyed making card games of our own with them to help him review. Thank you for such a great resource!"
"I give this an A+! These are *perfect* accompaniments for the "100 Easy Lessons..." book. That book is the only way my son could grasp reading (we homeschool), and I was going crazy trying to find something to use with it to reinforce. These are AWESOME. I can't say enough good things about them. My only complaint is I wish they went further up in the lessons! Thanks SO much!!!" -- Beth Yarwood

"I love that this packet added the "Story-Time" section. It's one of my son's favorite parts of the lessons in "100 Easy Lessons" and I know he'll enjoy having that as an additional reinforcement activity in the packet. Thank you for such a wonderful resource!"
"We are on Lesson 19. I've already printed the flashcards and the remainder of this packet looks great. I look forward to using  these materials in the next week." -- Tescille R.
"I love these packets. I think I've bought all of the ones that are out now.  I use Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons in my K-2 special education classroom.  I tend to save these for sub plans.  The kids love that they are cute and something a little different than our usual reading group.  They support the lessons so well."
"Great companion resource to accompany Twach my kid to read in 100 easy lessons. Especially since the book itself can loose interest pretty easy. Brought fun back into it."
"I use this with my ESL students that know very little English. It is soooo good!" -- Junelle K. 
"This is our first time using 100 Easy Lessons and these packets have made reinforcing the lessons we cover so easy. As a homeschool family, having a resource like this that is flexible and easy to implement is such a blessing. The worksheets are quick and easy for my kindergartner to complete with very little help and the flash cards make reviewing sounds possible when we're on the road with the help the older siblings. "
"Love these printables.  It was the main thing that made this program doable for us, my son really struggled with the book and was bored with it quickly, but he tolerated it when he got to do these lessons afterwards."
