Kid's Scoop: Reluctant Reader Solution (TOS Review)

As part of the TOS Homeschool Crew I received a wonderful supplementary resource called "Reluctant Reader Solution" by Kid Scoop. You can learn more about this company by visiting Kid Scoop's Online Site.

I think the company very accurately describes the product when they say "a full year of fun-filled pencil grabbing activities that turn frustration into fun!"

Reluctant Reader Solution is a downloadable folder with 365 activity worksheets that will help your struggling readers. The sheets are grouped into 5-7 pages thematic mini informative newsletters. Covering a variety of topic such as sports, fitness, American history, national holidays, famous personalities, animals, creativity at home, body science and so much more.

Types of activities included in these fun sheets are: reading to decipher clues or secret messages or to solves puzzles, crosswords, new vocabulary words, helpful writing topic starters, mind puzzles and using other printed sources such as newspaper, dictionary and magazines.

This product also includes a guide for educators and parents on how to incorporate the worksheets to their curriculum, as well as suggested schedules to work on the sheets chronologically or by theme.

When you purchase Reluctant Reader Solution you also receive access to a monthly full color online newsletters for even more fun activities.

The price for this great resource is a one time payment of $97 for a full year worth of fun sheets. The company offers an unconditional money back guarantee if you try this product and your child is does not start enjoying reading or reading more.

You can learn more about this product and purchase by visiting at their online shop.

So what did my kids thought of this product? As I said in the beginning, these worksheets are definitely fun and the boys looked forward to them every time. I am not a big fan of loading our kids with workbooks and worksheets but these ones I really like because they are very purposeful and the kids are not only getting extra practice on their reading and writing but they are truly learning new concepts, new vocabulary and new skills.
These sheets can be a great educational "add on" to any homeschool coop, after school program and of course parents and teachers will love these too.
To read what others families thought of this product don't forget to visit the TOS Homeschool Crew Blog.
Disclaimer: I received this product free of charge for the purpose of trying at home and writing an honest review. No other compensation was received.
