Because this program is in its early stages, new units will be added for some time. You'll have access to all of those updates, as well as any additional materials created for this class.

Color-Coded Letter Tiles will help your child review the letters he or she is learning. These letters are color-coded to help your child distinguish between long, short, soft, and hard sounds.
30-Minute Consulting Call
Need additional guidance or help getting started? This 30-minute consultation call will give you the encouragement and confidence you need to help your child learn to read.
Are you having trouble teaching your child to read?
Have you tried several curricula, apps, and computer programs and nothing is working?
Does trying to read move your child to tears? Do you cry with them?
Are you feeling like a total failure because you can't teach your child to read?
Do you feel like you don't have enough time or energy to properly teach your child basic reading skills.
Is any of this sounding familiar?
Hi, I'm Melanie and I know exactly how you feel.
When it was time to teach my twins to read, I tried the same method that had worked fairly well with my other children. BUT, this time every lesson ended in tears and frustration for all of us.
I thought to myself, "There has to be a better way to do this. I want my kids to love reading as much as I do and we are never going to get there if something doesn't change."
So, that's what I did...
I created a change!
What would your homeschool days look like if...
...your child was excited to do their reading lesson?
...in only 10 minutes a day your child could learn to read?
...no-prep was involved in your child's lessons?
...your child had video reading lessons?
...you were freed up to work-from-home or help your other children?
A Heart for Reading is a no-prep, elementary-level learning program, that will teach your child to read in only 10 minutes a day.
AND, you don't have to do the teaching!
You only need to make sure your child watches their lesson, does the corresponding activity, and be available to help them if they need you.
Why have video lessons?
- Some parents are intimidated by teaching their children to read. They don't know where to start or how to move forward.
- Children are funny little creatures. Sometimes they respond to the sound of someone else's voice rather than their parent's.
- In today's time, parents have a lot on their to-do lists. A lot of parents are trying to work-from-home, run a household, and maintain some sense of normalcy for their children.
Video lessons are a way children can watch and hear their reading lesson while Mom, Dad, or other caregiver is busy with life's other demands.
What exactly does "no-prep" mean?
"No-prep" means "no preparation."
Beyond printing the workbook for each unit, there's no preparation necessary. Your child will only need a binder (printing options are available as a separate service), pencils, crayons or colored pencils, and access to a computer to watch the video lessons.
Suggestions are made for books that will help your child on their learning to read adventure but are not necessary. It is advisable, however, to have a small selection of children's books available, either from ones you have on-hand, your local library, or from an online source
