The Learning Dynamics Reading Program has made such an impact in my daughter’s reading. It’s fun and simple to use. I wish I’d had this program from my first child on. It’s such a great way to learn and kids love it!

I’ve enjoyed seeing this program work for very beginning readers, but it’s been amazing to see how Learning Dynamics has helped my struggling reader.
My daughter loves books and has carried them around since she was tiny. When it was my daughter’s turn to learn to read, I pulled out several reading programs I had on hand. After a frustrating time, I had to admit that they just didn’t work. We struggled through and made a little progress but it was a massive hurdle and her excitement for learning to read was gone.
From the first day I looked through the Learning Dynamics Reading curriculum, I was so hopeful and positive. As some of you know, I was homeschooled for lots of my growing up years and my kids were homeschooled for a time as well so I’ve seen and used quite a few programs. This program is designed to not only teach your kids to read, but to also build confidence and instill a desire to keep reading. The books are well sequenced to help kids succeed and built-in rewards help them feel positive and successful.
Even though my daughter knew her letters pretty well, I chose to start the program from the very beginning. I’m so glad I did! We followed the program doing 10-15 minutes, three times a week.
After about two months, we had parent-teacher conference. Her teacher was so excited to tell me about my daughter’s drastic improvement in reading – she could hardly believe the difference. Suddenly things were clicking that weren’t before and my daughter’s reading skills were skyrocketing. My daughter’s scores had nearly DOUBLED! Her teacher wondered what changed and I told her about this program I’ve been using. She wanted to know more and was impressed that the short time we were spending on this was having such a huge impact. I’m excited to see how she does as we continue this journey.
Having seen and used quite a few reading programs, several things stand out about Learning Dynamics Reading – all things I love.
I love that the lessons don’t all feel the same and the stories, lessons, and music are so varied. The program uses different activities (including music) that keep the excitement level up which makes learning fun!
- No screen
As much as my kids love screens, I don’t want them staring at them all day. The fact that Learning Dynamics has no screen time is a huge draw for me. Without the screen, learning becomes much more interactive and personal. It’s hands on which keeps attention and gives kids lots of ways to learn and remember.
Plan on 15 minutes a day, three times a week, and you’re set. The lesson manual is easy to use and makes it easy to jump in and get going. You don’t spend time trying to figure out complicated systems – just read through and you’re ready to go.
As kids master lessons, they earn prizes and books. I love that they EARN BOOKS! It’s a great way to help them feel ownership of what they’ve learned and keeps them reading to reinforce that knowledge with something of their very own. There are several studies showing kids that own their own books have better grades as they get older too.
You might already know that I love music in many forms – especially in teaching. Using music to learn helps your brain make deeper connections and process new information. I still remember songs I learned as a kid about different countries, states, and more. The songs in the Learning Dynamics program really help kids remember what they learn in the lessons.
- Parent-Child Time
One-on-one time with my kids is a favorite thing at our house. My daughter looks forward to sitting and reading together. It makes reading a positive experience and helps instill a love of learning. Kids love it when you see and acknowledge their success.
- Books in color
A lot of reading programs I’ve seen have colors on the cover, then black and white inside. Kids love seeing color on every page – it gets rid of the textbook feel and helps to draw them into the story.
If I could change one thing about this program, it would be to have even more. There’s plenty to keep you going for a long way but it works so well, I’d love it to continue on!
AND… We’re back to carrying around books!
When you open your kit, you’ll have workbooks, a teaching manual, flashcards, a CD, and over 50 books with a great storage box to make your own library.
This program would be great to use over the Summer to enhance your child’s reading skills.
