TOS Review ~ See -N-Read

header     Do you have a child just learning to read or one that has trouble staying focused?  Do you sometimes get a bit distracted while reading yourself?  Well,  See-N-Read may just be the product to help you out.  See-N-Read has been researching for over three years in the fields of reading, dyslexia, and visual and cognitive processing and has created  a special tool to help the reader stay focused and on task.

The See-N-Read has a clear window to help readers see and concentrate on one section of reading at a time without loosing their place. This helps to eliminate the frustration in new readers and old readers alike and also helps to increase fluency and comprehension. I was able to use the See-N-Read with my preschooler while reading to her. It is a great tool to separate the words so she can begin to recognize the sight words we are learning.

Do you frequently make marks or notes in books?  See-N-Read also has a  Memorymark tool made from the same material as the reading window,but it has a reading window that is cut out. This cut out makes it perfect for highlighting or underlining text in a nice, neat fashion.

See-N-Read and Memorymark are both available in two sizes:

  • $2.99 for a book sized 3 1/2” x 5” ~ for small books and chapter books
  • $3.49 for a document sized 3 1/2” x 8 1/2” ~ for large books and documents

The company also makes an  eSee-N-Read for use on the computer. It sells for $29.99 and is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, Vista 64, and Windows 7 operating systems.  There is also a Mac OSX version coming soon.  All products can be found at the  See-N-Read website.

We enjoyed this tool and I foresee many years of usage from this product as my two youngest learn to read in the years ahead.  To see what other members of The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew thought, click HERE.
