We love the Essential Skills Math programs because they move the children from one skill to the next in a step by step manner and they always start the children where they left of in the previous session.

We purchased four site licenses for each of 17 schools in our district. The Essential Skills literacy software fits perfectly with the state content standards for our reading program. Our teachers and students absolutely love this software!

We use the Sight Words program regularly and particularly like it because it gives the children opportunities to learn the words in each modality. The children really enjoy the software when they complete an assignment and fill in a picture. This software is significantly helping the children with word recognition.

Our remedial readers benefit greatly from using this software daily. I have noticed an increase in their reading fluency since using Sight Words from Essential Skills Software.

My students use Super Phonics and Sight Words, at least twice a week. The programs are user friendly, easy for the kids to navigate through, and teachers can readily call up the reports. In my kindergarten class these programs have played an important role in the gains the children have made.

We use your programs every day. We are very happy with the success that the kids have been having. I recommend your software to others whenever I can. I have even suggested it at the state level. The value of the programs for the price is unmatchable. I want to purchase all of your programs when I have more funding available. Your customer service is excellent and I have never needed your technical support.

We use Essential Skills Software on a daily basis. These programs are great! They are interactive and they really keep the students' attention. They are perfect for our students who do not have their needs met in a typical classroom setting. The programs provide accurate student progress reporting and feedback in a user friendly way.

We use these programs all the time. The kids like them and they are very student and teacher friendly. The programs are colorful and the skill activities are age and learning appropriate. They provide a good variety of time tested practices for building literacy skills.

Essential Skills provides excellent reinforcement of basic reading and phonics skills. The students can easily use the programs independently and they love to keep track of their progress. These programs are an excellent tool to supplement and reinforce the skills that I teach.

Conchita Rubio, Resource Teacher
Winchester Ave. Elementary, Martinsburg, West Virginia

My first and second grade teachers really like the programs. Super Phonics is used on a regular basis in the classroom and in the computer lab. It is a great reinforcement tool. Essential Skills programs are a good value and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to other teachers.
