TouchTile Review- Level 6- Multi-Syllable Words

The TouchTile Reading System is a great system for children who have not been able to learn to read through traditional methods. Some kids need to touch in order to learn. These are kids who learn best by doing. This multi-sensory system teaches them to touch the sounds, blend them together and in the process, understand what they are doing.

My oldest, C, is still working on the last level, level 6- Multi-syllable words. She is doing well with part 1 but we continue to review it and slowly will be touching on part 2. Part 1 words are “do-able” for her but there is a large jump in skill level between part 1 and part 2. Part 2 words are higher elementary words and she is only in 1st grade. We will continue to practice part 1 until she has independently mastered the words.

Her overall reading skills are continuing to progress very well. She is very proud of herself and looks forward to mastering the words so she can move on.

This system is wonderful for my soon to be 7 year old. I can see this being a helpful system for any child who has a Learning difference. If you believe your child may have dyslexia, you can take a Dyslexia Test. Learning Link Technologies offers many programs to help your child succeed!

TouchTile Review-Level 5-Endings

The TouchTile Reading System is a great system for children who have not been able to learn to read through traditional methods. Some kids need to touch in order to learn. These are kids who learn best by doing. This multi-sensory system teaches them to touch the sounds, blend them together and in the process, understand what they are doing.

My oldest, C, just finished the 5th level which covered endings.  It also brought attention to the vowels in the words because they had irregular sounds.  This level was much harder for her due to the irregular vowel sounds as well as recalling the endings she learned previously. Though I don’t like seeing her struggle, it was comforting all in the same because I could more accurately measure her progress because she simply read them wrong when she first started. After reviewing, she was able to reach mastery.

I particularly enjoyed Continue reading…

TouchTile Review-4 Letter Blends and Digraphs

My girls are loving the TouchTile Reading system. C, the older one, continues to work through level 3 where she is blending 4 sounds together. She is currently working on nonsense words and we expect to be through all of them by the end of the week. She is very proud of herself and giggles at some of the nonsense words. She continues to enjoy working with the system, enhancing her reading skills. She even grabbed a book off the library shelf the other week and began reading it. She looked up at me and said, “Mom! I can read this!” Her reading skills Continue reading…

TouchTile Review-Success for C and I

So far, this program is really helping my children to improve reading skills. C flew through the 2nd level. I was hesitant at first but once she got through the 2nd part of the 2nd level which is three letter nonsense words, I could tell she really has improved. I has even improved with her letter identification. It feels like overnight, she all of a sudden knew her letters. She is still having some trouble identifying their sounds. I still think it is because of the pictures. This program is supposed to help her through using Continue reading…

TouchTile Review-Three Letter Blends

We are continuing to use the TouchTile Reading System to help improve reading skills.  We recently moved on to Level 2 with C. I wanted to make sure she knew each sound blend from Level 1 perfectly before I moved on. So far, this level seems to be easy for her to complete. It is aimed at blending 3 letters. The first part is made of regular three-letter words. Once she has demonstrated repeated proficiency, I will Continue reading…

TouchTile Review-Getting Started

I began the TouchTile System tonight with both my 6 and 4 year old. Both were very excited to start this. My 6 year old, C, was able to get through the 1st of 2 sections in Level 1 which included identifying letter sounds both with and without pictures while also using her hands (opposite hand was to point to the opposite side of the page). I have to admit, when we got to the letters without pictures, I think she pointed to and made the sounds of the letters faster then I could comprehend and “check” her answers. I was quite impressed and she was very excited that tomorrow she can start the 2nd section of Level 1. As I was paging through the rest of the levels, I am excited to Continue reading…
