Crossbow Education: Eye Level Reading Rulers ~ a TOS review

 rr

Learning to read is hard work. And there can be so many distractions to make your child’s eyes jump across the page, not to mention if your child suffers from dyslexia or other learning difficulties. Today I want to tell you about a little handy reading ruler from Crossbow Education, called Eye Level Reading Rulers

 

The Eye Level Reading Ruler is a colored overlay text highlighter about the size of a six-inch ruler. Discreet and portable, the reading ruler is made of a combination of opaque and transparent plastic that both underlines the text and highlights it in a coloured tint. Simply read the text through either of the tinted plastic strips of your selected color, and track down the page: broad strip for paragraphs; narrow strip for single lines.

                                                                               ~ from websitePhotobucketWe received a package of 10 reading rulers in an array of colors that are specially designed to help promote student achievement. I used these with Montana specifically to help her track during daily reading time. Of course she choose the yellow tinted one because that is her favorite.

I have seen great improvement in Montana being able to follow along in her reader without getting lost. The price is really nice too at $16.95 for 10 or you can get a 5-pack for $9.45. I really appreciate the quality of these rulers. In the past we have used others and they were flimsy and are now broken and trashed. The Crossbow Reading Rulers are made from sturdy plastic and we have not experienced any cracking. And the best part is they can withstand the grasp of a certain 3-year old without any major damage, a huge plus in my book!

We love our Crossbow Reading Rulers and use them daily. They also make great bookmarks. I recommend these rulers to all who have kids learning to read and those with reading difficulties. Be sure to check out what my Crewmates thought of this product by clicking the banner below.
