BRAINSAREFUN FEARLESS FRIDAY BLOG – Success with Reading, Math and Study Kills – Friday July 26, 2013


What sets Brainsarefun apart from virtually every other educational solution I have ever seen is  "the experience of success," beginning with cooperation before additional instruction begins.

Because we set kids up for success our skills and tools work with all home and school curriculums. You don't have to change what you're doing or purchase new devices, software or textbooks. Use whatever you're currently using, but use it in ways that provide kids with levels of approval that translate to high time-on-task and increased learning. Kids must be allowed to live successful lives.

What most remedial and accelerated reading and math programs do is present students  with more of the same – earning their well-deserved reputation for "drill and kill." It's no surprise that so many of these well-meaning programs end in frustration and additional failure. What's needed is the direct experience of  "success" with reading and math.

Kids love these skills, tools and solutions because they begin experiencing successes with reading and math immediately – often for the first time. This is what parents and teachers want:

  • self control
  • self esteem
  • achievement and accomplishment
  • mastery of reading and math
  • academic success
  • study skills
  • motivation
  • exposure to "reality" and the world of work and reward
  • better test scores
  • less struggle with homework
  • the ability to work
  • continuing educations
  • jobs with a future
  • living up to agreements

​​Brainsarefun skills, tools and solutions speak in a language that kids can understand: structure, achievment, time-on-task, skills, reward, respect, feelings of mastery, cooperatrion and adventure. The skills require no special computers, devices or special material and can be leanred quickly and easilly. Once learned, these skills can be readilly transfered to any subject, at any time, and provide success for all ages and abilities.

Students who are falling behind need to rebuild confidence. They can't be presented with more of the same. They must experience new success with reading, writing, listening, speaking, information organization, critical thinking, study skills and math.

They must experience success with the three fundamental behaviors associated with success: how to start on time, stay on task and complete their assignments.

An emphasis on winning with these skills and behaviors is what sets Brainsarefrun solutions apart. This success is what overcomes boredom and apathy and allows kids to continue their educations and hold jobs with a future.

I'd like to recommend that you get going today. Waiting doesn't work.

Thanks for all you do to teach kids to succeed with reading and math. Let me know how I can help. 

P.S. We have 3 new solutions for sale over at – success with reading, math and study skills. I think you'll find the examples and instructions in our new releases even easier to use. Your support not only allows me to develop new skills and tools, it provides free copies to parents, teachers and grandparents who need extra help.*

* We know that some people don't have $24.95 right now to purchase Brainsarefun solutions, but still need success with reading and math this summer. If you need any of our solutions email me and I'll send them to you for free: I love to send stuff out for free. I love it when people buy our solutions. Either way kids win with reading and math. Thanks.
