The Reading Sleuth Foundation is now official! An Early Development Literacy Reading Lesson Plan Edutainment Wonder System! We have over a million globally sleuthing! A rough low estimate no doubt as everyone teaches everyone they know. These are simple critical developmental reading games and everyone is realizing the advantage of having these tools in your reading toolbelt. Such positive advancement it is just wonderful these years since the first publication in 2010. I wrote it in 1970 and hardly changed it, can you tell? 🙂
Free since 2010 and updated in 2021 to “The Reading Sleuths 2021”
We are still under construction here so this is just an important update. I am clarifying one point in the intro video: My mom decided to allow me to learn every word, and it this way the critical and analytical thinking along with the excitement of every word including the articulation combination of every two letter combo into words was just incredible. You may say things a bit wrong, but you will pile on pronunciation rules, usage, definitions, and tenses for quite a while. The advantages of allowing me to read and be a bit off was greater than hearing the word and all the stuff that goes with it. She was a genius and I so thank her for that tactic. 🙂 My first grade teacher told me It Is Divine! LOL. That sounds like too much so I said in the Video that Mrs. Valentine Smeege said, “It Is Wonderful!” 🙂 Give a chance to this new way to take down a strange word. It will make you a stronger reader, like every new tool in your pack. It is better than just knowing the word because you are thinking critically and analytically while you articulate and eventually figure out each and every word. Put it in your belt you got that one!
TRSF is working on the 501c3 and has always given this away as a hobby actually, but it has grown into a real need as a full time job. So as it will all still be free we are talking to funding sources. If you are so impressed with the development as a result of this effort talk it up! If I get the funding I am hoping for it will not be necessary to donate anything. I should have had several ventures ongoing but everyone here in the states have been dogging this simple system while the rest of the world is rocking it. I think the US is catching up though from the cookies and numbers of feedback.
We are a Louisiana Non-Profit Corporation at this point. I am still arguing on several fronts for ventures stalled and worse. This effort has seen stellar advancements globally as kids of all ages even to 100 years are sleuthing. Get after it.
The Game 0 is truly monumental for development of the mind, and worth spending time on even when you are just taking it easy as a pastime. I just mean to say do not underestimate the significance of that Simple Pattern Recognition Game. It works in any language or alphabet. Its not just about learning to read. It is also about getting back into action, so if you feel left behind just give these games a try. Relax, no matter what age, or how great a reader you are there is always room for improvement. This simple tactic of two letters and long sounds get you close enough to recognize the words nearly all the time. So dust off all wayward Covid or Troubles for whatever reason, I made the Videos in 2019 with the Sky as the Limit! Jeez what a time it has been so lets get to sleuthing! Hit the library and grab a fav magazine. Language is the biggest problem you will tackle, and these tactics bring it down to size while you never hesitate at a new word again! It is very important to be smooth and steady. Not necessarily slow, you can make some serious time when pattern recognition really kicks in to whole words and more. Lets Sleuth and thanks for you comments!
