This article is in collaboration with See-N-Read.
Are you one of the parents that have toiled to make one of those reading tools with the slits to help your child in his reading? Have your hands ached from trying to cut those tiny windows? Even after your child is using your new tool, does she still falter because she can’t see what is before or after the line she is reading? Do you wish that you had something to help when your child is reading on the computer?
Well, toil and wish no more. See-N-Read Reading Tools has it all. Their research-based and classroom-tested tools are exactly what the doctor ordered for many kids who skip words or sometimes entire lines of text while reading. See-N-Read Reading Tools actually has three products:
The regular See-N-Read has a clear window that acts just like one of those handmade reading tools that you might have at home but with one big difference. Instead of blocking the words that come before and after the line that you are reading, the areas above and below are tinted. You can still see the words, so transitioning from one line to the next is easier, however, because those areas are darkened, the clutter on the page is reduced. The See-N-Read tools come in two sizes, a 3 ½ x 5 book size and a 3 ½ x 8 ½ document size. It is made out of a flexible polypropylene material and can easily be carried in the book to be used as a bookmark, or in a backpack or suitcase.
Their Memorymark tool is made out of exactly the same material but has a reading window that is cut out. That makes it perfect for highlighting or underlining text as well as note taking. The Memorymark tool is available in a 3 x 5 1/2 or a 3 X 8 ½ size.
But what about reading on the computer screen? See-N-Read Reading Tools even has something for that – the eSee-N-Read! This downloadable product has the same look as See-N-Read’s other products – a clear reading window with a tinted space above and below but it is on the computer screen. You simply pick up the See-N-Read with your cursor and it will go wherever you want it to go on your computer screen.
