My son John is eight, and we just finished the first level after four months. We had gone through other programs before, with little success. He could read proficiently, but spelling left him out in the cold. About a month ago, he suddenly looked up at me and said "Mom, do you realize I can actually SPELL?" I smiled. He has progressed rapidly, and is even much more willing to write than before.
A few minutes ago, he was spinning around in his chair, holding up the first level book and saying "Thank you Marie Rippel! You taught me how to spell!" I just had to share.
That's awesome! I'll be sure to pass your note on to Marie, I love it! Merry :-)
