For this review, I was able to review the KidScoop: Reluctant Reader Solution. These are fun-filled 5, 6, or 7 page what I would call mini unit studies. The were so fun! I used them with Ethan, my 8 year old Aspie, and he couldn't get enough of them. Between the fun graphics and the time he was able to spend on the computer, he thought it was more of a treat than actual schoolwork. And you certainly can't beat the price! For only $97 you can receive 365 pages of these activities, short articles, writing prompts, etc. with a money-back guarantee. Also, you can't beat the choices that are included. There are more than enough to choose from to keep the most picky boy or girl interested. They have everything from baseball to bubble gum to butterflies.
Along with the various activity packs, you receive a subscription to a monthly newsletter than can either be printed out or viewed online. Ethan really enjoyed these to and they tied into the lessons he had already completed. Since he could be the poster child for being a reluctant reader, I was thrilled that he enjoyed them so much and can't wait to finish more of them.
