Our special education teachers love Essential Skills software. We use it daily with students at all grade levels. Even our older children don't feel embarrassed using the software. It appeals to kids of all ages. The children love to show you their progress and they never tire of the programs.

Durkin Park Elementary, Chicago, Illinois

We use Essential Skills software every day. Sight Words in particular is a favorite program. It is very colorful with lots of activity types for different learning styles. I never have a problem with the children not wanting to use the software. The children find it easy to use and there is no training involved. Even my youngest students can use the software. We love the auditory feedback that the program offers and the children also like being able to see their scores each day.

Essential Skills Software is very supportive to our curriculum. It correlates well with what is going on in the classroom. The menu systems are easy to use and the programs are flexible and adaptable to the instructional needs of each classroom. All programs are integrated which allows quick and easy assessment of what students have accomplished. It also reduces the time to add other programs without requiring additional student Idaho's and setup information. The kids love using the software and our teachers feel very positive about how these programs complement the curriculum.

Our teachers love the fact that the programs track the children's progress and they can pinpoint problem areas. You can walk into a room when the students are working on the programs and hear a pin drop! The children love the immediate feedback. We have invited other buildings to see these programs and they have all purchased them.

We pre-test and post test and have definite improvements in both word recognition and phonics skills. The Title I Teacher uses Essential Skills programs daily for remedial students.

Judy Pharis, Teacher
Cornell Elementary, Cornell, Illinois

We use Sight Words for 1st and 2nd grade and Reading Comprehension for grades 2 and 3 on a regular basis. Both the students and teachers love them.

Roberta Thomas, Teacher
Petersburg Elementary, Petersburg, Illinois

Essential Skills programs are used by our primary grades. The feedback that I get from the teachers is that they see an improvement with the students from quarter to quarter. The teachers love being able to customize spelling lists. Both the product and content are very good. They are the best programs I have seen available.

Charlotte Farell, Teacher
Seneca North Elementary, Seneca, Illinois

The vocabulary program is an effective way to develop and broaden vocabulary skills. The Super Phonics and Sight Words programs are really great for newcomers to the country. These programs are easy to use, the kids really enjoy the activities and we use them all the time!

We love your programs, and don't want to use anything else!
