As a Reading Corps tutor, I use Great Leaps for students who are struggling in reading. Ever since the program was introduced to my students they have been nothing short of excited. The absolute joy and sense of accomplishment when they leap a page is proof that this program is needed in more reading classrooms across the country. The program provides many opportunities for praise, so even if students are not able to leap a page, they can still see the gains they make each day especially with the progress chart. As a future Reading Specialist, I am thrilled that I was introduced to this program that encompasses so many skills that unfortunately many kids struggle with today. I will definitely have in my professional library for years to come.

I am a Certified Barton Tutor and I use Great Leaps as a tool to help with fluency and accuracy. It has been a fantastic resource. Not only does it improve their fluency but it is a great confidence booster. They love to see how far they have come and how much faster they can read. It gives them such a great benchmark to see their progress.
