Fast ForWord Reading Programs

Reading Programs For Struggling Readers

Software For Struggling Readers

After completing at least one cognitive Fast ForWord program, most Gemm Learning students move to Fast ForWord Reading, a series of reading programs for struggling readers to fill in their unique reading skill gaps.

The Fast ForWord Reading programs, Levels 1-5, loosely correlate with grades. Reading 1 and 2 build fluency, spelling and language structure, while Reading Levels 3 and 4 and 5 develop reading comprehension and build critical thinking and inferential skills. Reading 5 is appropriate for grades 8 through adult.

Program Descriptions

The Fast ForWord reading programs are for struggling readers of all ages. While some exercises are unique to one program, there are many exercise themes, such as spelling, vocabulary and reading comprehension found in all programs.

Reading Programs For Struggling ReadersFast ForWord Reading Level 1

Reading Level 1 -- for K to 2nd graders -- works on early foundational skills such as vocabulary, phonemic awareness, spelling and uses simple sentence completion exercises to develop reading accuracy and comprehension. It also has a left to right eye tracking exercise with essential sight words to build capability in both areas. Each exercise is hosted by its own colorful character. The primary goal here is help the struggling reader develop reading fluency.

Fast ForWord Reading Level 2

Reading Level 2 -- for 2nd to 4th graders -- builds on Reading Level 1. The spelling element of the program moves from phonics to spelling rules. The sight words include unconventional spellings and the reading comprehension exercises continue to progress. This program completes the reading fluency work in Fast ForWord.

Fast ForWord Reading Level 3

While Reading Level 3 uses a 4th to 6th grade vocabulary, it is the starting point for most adolescents and adults. It takes the thinking-while-reading skill development up a notch with Twisted Pictures, an exercise requiring the student to choose one out of four similar sentences to describe a complicated picture, and Hog Hat Zone that has missing words in sentences pulled from the classics. It also introduces an exercise that builds metalinguistics, a dexterity with language -- rhyming, seeing the nuances -- required for higher level thinking, often an under-developed skill in struggling readers.

Read some online porn stories

Re-enact them.
may I suggest that you start with "My Wife" by Dirty Dawg (no, that's not me)
It's a married couple that is in the dumps until the wife finds the husband jacking off to porn. It's actually a really sweet story that doesn't involve anyone beyond those 2.
you can find it on

Wow! Just read a story online

Wow! Just read a story online about a guy who has spent $60K in trying to get custody of a pet that was purchased while in a relationship with ex-girlfriend.
I have had animals my entire life and I think of them as part of my family but $60K in legal fees to just attempt to get custoday is excessive don't you think?

Online civility show

Heard this yesterday on NPR, it was about online comments and the pros and cons of anonymity when making comments about stories. Rayo bringing up tossing mom off the cliff makes me feel I should share this-
I'm all for anonymity, I always read the comments on articles and occasionally comment myself. Sure, there are the regular racist assholes saying the same stupid shit every single time but then there are plenty of honest comments that seem to me to be a real gauge on what people really think. Back in the day people spent their whole lives being polite and never speaking the truth, for a long time only people that liked to fist fight would speak the truth and now when a story comes out people all over the planet can say what they really think, even the mommies boys like JWT and...

    Jan 19, 2012 by ~Dani~ | Posted in Grade-Schooler

    My new stepdaughter is 10 years old.. She loves books but is a slow reader.. Her 8 year old brother reads MUCH better than she does.. The books we got her for Christmas she says are hard to read.. I want to get her stuff … right now, but we do for when she comes to visit.. So I'm looking for stuff that she can do on her own that will help her where she's at now.. and things for when she comes to visit here where we can help her as well...

    • Some kids struggle with reading. They are just not as fast as other kids their age or younger.

      My oldest & youngest have struggled with reading. My oldest is now 15 almost 16. She loves to read. Most of … can be stressful so please keep an eye on her & let her stop when she is stressed.

      Some days my son just says "I can't think right now." So I let him walk away and we try again an hour later.

    That will help me learn to read at a high school level quickly??
    i am currently reading at a 5th or 6th grade level.
    i want to do it online.

    • Actually all you need to do is start reading. Pick up a book that interests you and read it.

      My son was tested in fifth grade and was determined to be reading on a college level and all he ever did was pic … good at that because if you can read all six of the books, the last two were written at more of a high school level than the first four were.

      The best way to improve your reading is to just start reading.
