I’m excited about this one! If you’re teaching your child to read, you can get the entire Funnix tutor set, 220 lessons, downloaded to your computer FREE! This set usually sells for $249 and there absolutely no strings attached. This is by the author of “Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons” that worked so well for my son. I can’t wait for my son and daughter to check out this new program!
Here is some info, directly from their website http://www.funnix.com/ (go there to download the program):
The program is designed from the world’s most successful creator of instructional materials, Siegfried (Zig) Engelmann, a maverick professor of Education who has authored many books, including Give Your Child a Superior Mind, and highly successful reading programs like Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons.
When you teach Funnix, you and you child sit next to each other and watch the computer screen. A narrator presents a series fast-paced exercises in each 30-minute lesson. The narrator asks questions, and your child responds–out loud. Your job is to reinforce correct responses and correct any mistakes by following simple rules for “navigating” through the material.
What is Zig Engelmann’s reason for providing this amazing give-away? He indicated, “We’ve been trying for years to do things that make schools successful, particularly with young kids and lower performers. We figured that we’re in a position to offer schools and parents a stimulus package that could be worth a lot for every kid who otherwise would not be accelerated or who would be a reading failure. Why not make the electronic package available to anybody who needs it? It doesn’t cost us much to do it, and it could help in a small way to counteract the effects of bankrupt schools and dismal times.”
