“Once children master the seven sets of Reading skills, they will read fluently at grade level. Our team has proven this is true for 85% of all children – even those who are vulnerable in kindergarten. Our Reading App helps teachers plan, assess and track skill mastery so interventions can be applied immediately.”

“If you can’t measure it you can’t manage it.”

Inspired by the Science of Reading

Joyful Literacy is based on the most reliable international research. It’s not debatable!

Teaching doesn't get better than this!
Our Joyful Literacy Team is thrilled to present you with this exciting and ground-breaking Reading App. To our knowledge there is nothing quite like it. It’s fun, it’s fast, it’s motivating! Circle Charts are the heart and soul of the 85% success rates we have been able to achieve.

Your instructional planning is about to change in a calculated way. We are going to share your delight as you efficiently assess children on every essential skill, then apply interventions immediately to change their learning success rates. You can end each day knowing exactly what each child has achieved. You can shine with satisfaction as you quantify individual and class progress each week. And we will look after you in every way we can as you begin implementation.

This is a new world for vulnerable children: you are leading the way as you pave the road to their early learning success. Teaching doesn’t get better than this!
