I use this software specifically with the students in my resource room. I appreciate how easy it is for the students to use, and they are always eager to use the programs. I have had the software for at least five years and still use it every day. I really like the simplicity of the programs. They are not cluttered, and I like the reinforcement and repetition they provide. It is easy for the students to see how they are doing, and the Marks Manager is great for producing reports that I can share with parents.

I discovered Essential Skills' Sight Words program while looking for something to provide my students with focused practice of sight words. I now use it as my main sight word recognition program. The kids love the activities, and the program allows them to work at their own pace. I like how easy it is to create reports for accountability and reporting to parents.

Our Special Education Teacher uses Essential Skills programs for 30 minutes daily with her students. The students had significant performance gains as a result of using the software. The programs enhanced our school-wide guided reading program.
