“Pets Rock!” Published On READING UNLOCKED
My poem “Pets Rock!” was recently published on the Reading Unlocked website. Reading Unlocked is a new online reading program for dyslexics and young children who are just beginning to read. It uses a Simplified Phonics system that teaches children to blend sounds into words using a multi-sensory, personalized approach. The program is broken into 10-minute lessons, building from learning the alphabet to being able to read chapter books. Each lesson finishes with a poem with words that the child can read highlighted in red.
Reading Unlocked is one of four programs promoted by Dyslexia Gold, a British educational company that helps children with dyslexia. The company purchased 10 of my poems all together.
