“My child keeps saying…can we do one more? Amazing…A must have for preschool aged children!”

“It turns sight word practice into a fun, artsy activity.
Both of my girls love to play with Wikki Stix and Picture First learning really got it right with this set.”

After seeing how my students learn from the lessons, I’ve started to rethink ALL of my other curriculum to see how I can make everything I teach more deeply meaningful.

My 4 year old twin girls LOVE these. They love that they are interactive, and are picking up so much in just the few short days we have had these.
My student’s beg to do our “Lingo Lessons” !! The activities are super adorable and make learning so fun. 🙂

These sight word cards are incredible. My 6 yr old daughter LOVES doing the action part, perfect for any age.
The old classroom standard way of teaching reading does not work for every child.
Some children are “picture thinkers”, and struggle with seeing the words on a page in their minds eye. This can lead to a child not understanding content and pretending they do, suffering deep feelings of inadequacy, and withdrawing emotionally or acting out.
PictureFirst Learning is a company born out of necessity. The founders, Melanie West (an educational psychologist) and Suzanne Kisly-Coburn (a dyslexia expert), were both mothers who had young children who struggled with reading.
Over many years, the new system they developed has not only helped their own children, but many others as well, and is currently in use (and loved by!) many teachers in the California school system.
PictureFirst Learning methods have been tested, and the results show great improvement in reading and comprehension.
