Just a message to say a HUGE thank you for supporting project Peasyread!
Even though we probably won’t have made it to the VOOM pitchathon, your support and pledges have meant so much to us.
We’re going to continue working on creating our fun and easy app, so that every child has an accessible way to learn to read. We’ll be sure to keep you posted…
Once again, thank you from all the team at Oxford Learning Solutions. Your response has been overwhelming.
“We have been so happy with Easyread since we made contact with you and would recommend your product to any one of our friends.
Rory has made such fantastic progress with reading and now enjoys reading novels in bed at night and is currently reading “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”. Now our problem is getting him to put his light off at bedtime.
Nobody would believe that a boy could have made such fantastic progress in less than a year. Rory used to really resist anything involving reading and we used to dread any sort of homework or reading.
Thank you so much for helping us to make school easier and more enjoyable for Rory. And thank you for helping Rory to achieve a love of reading.”
We think reading and enjoying Harry Potter is a wonderful way for 7 year-old Rory to finish the course – even though sleep is sacrificed as a result!
Well done Rory!
“Easyread has been really fantastic for Rose (11), increasing her confidence and finally giving her the ability to unlock the mystery of breaking down words that had eluded her for so long.
Such a helpful and supportive team too. Thanks.”
Rose is now breaking down words rather than guessing them, and we can’t wait to hear how her spelling now comes on.
“Kayla is going really well with Easyread and her school reading has gone up by 4 levels since she started these lessons.
She still has a way to go but seeing the improvement and her eagerness to read has been awesome.
Some days I have to push her into doing the lesson as it isn’t quite the novelty it was in the beginning, other days she is happy to do it.
All good so far.”
All good at lesson 47 for 8 year-old Kayla, great to hear!
“I’m delighted with Darcy’s progress and continued enthusiasm – I can’t thank Easyread enough. After tonight’s lesson she said that “It’s (Easyread) is like medicine to make me better!”
9 year-old Darcy is already seeing the benefits of decoding for herself at lesson 14
“We are very pleased with Louise’s progress. Louise is really enjoying the lessons and doesn’t like to miss a day as she realises it is helping her so much. Her rhyming, spelling and decoding have improved within 50 lessons.
Thank you so much to all at Easyread. Louise is at last enjoying literacy again.”
A wonderful message for a Monday morning. We’re so pleased 10 year-old Louise is learning to love literacy again.
“I’m thrilled to report that for the past 2 days Sadie has been bringing a book in the car to read. She also wrote in a composition book for about 20 minutes straight this evening. She acknowledges that she feels more excited about reading now.
8 year-old Sadie is finding her love for reading at lesson 25.
With 4 days to go, we still need your help!
If you haven’t already, then please take 30 seconds to vote for our free reading app for every child. https://www.vmbvoom.com/pitches/peasyread/
If there’s 1, 2, 3, maybe 4 or 5 people you haven’t told about project Peasyread, then please share with them and encourage them to vote.
There’s still a long way to go, but 4 whole days can make all the difference, and we haven’t given up yet…
With a TV appearance on That’s Oxfordshire today, and hopefully a mention from BBC South Today, we’re giving it everything we’ve got to make sure that every child has an accessible way to learn to read.
Thank you for all your support already, and thank you in advance for any more help you can give.
“After what seemed like a shaky start in terms of assessment this year, we had Arlo’s student conference on Tuesday, and his teacher is amazed at the progress he has made in his reading.
His fluency in reading out loud has improved so much! She also had to test him 4 times (going up a level each time) when trying to determine what level he was at.
I wish that we had started Arlo on this programme when he was 8 or 9, instead of 12. But better late than never – he has improved SO much!
He’s so confident in his reading, he really enjoys it and he feels really good about himself!
“We got a packet from her school today that has some memories and papers from each month of school this year. It is amazing to see the improvement since February’s papers!”
Way to go Mya!
