Take an Assessment

In this first grade language arts program, your child will work through the workbook and the integrated readers.

Dr. Karen worked to deliver the simplest complete program possible. No separate parent manual or additional training required. Short, easy-to-use instructions.

The Cub Growing workbook continues to build on the lessons from Happy Cheetah’s K program.

In this level of the Happy Cheetah Reading System, your student will continue to grow skills. Over these thirty-five stories, your students quickly advance from several simple sentences to longer, more complex reading selections.

Working through the workbook and the readers in tandem, your student will grow in confidence with reading and writing, continue to develop the ability to hear individual sounds in words (phonemic awareness), learn a surprising amount of new vocabulary, and become more fluent.

Your student will continue to practice the methods that all successful readers use. Regular copywork encourages swift reading development. Enjoyable exercises keep your student interested while improving skills.

With the Cub Running workbook, students rapidly expand on what they already know. As students read longer passages, they continue to grow reading confidence and fluency.

A complete language arts program, this book includes reading, handwriting, vocabulary acquisition, spelling, grammar, and creative writing.

Exclusive Happy Cheetah Reading Magnetic Letters

Specifically designed for this program, this set contains lower-case letters, with red vowels and blue consonants.

Dr. Karen says, “For beginning readers, magnetic letters are very often the magic key. Parents truly don’t understand their critical value. Magnetic letters will often make the difference between a reading program working or not. They will also much more quickly launch a child that is almost ready. You can save months of instructional time if you use them. In my experience, children love them. (Because they work!)”

Don’t miss out on this magic key, exclusive to this program.

BONUS 1: Special Report: The Successful Students’ Cheat Codes: How to Level Up Your Student’s Reading Using the Secret Techniques That Good Readers Know Automatically

BONUS 2: Foolproof Stop Reversing B and D Forever Bookmarks

Did you know that every time children say or write the wrong sound, they need to say the correct sound twelve times in a row to eliminate the sound confusion?

Help your child never guess again.

In Dr. Karen’s clinical practice, she has experimented with many methods of helping students not reverse their letters, and at last she has found the solution to stop b-d confusion.

When children see the letters in order a-b-c-d, they don’t mix up the sounds. Even children who struggle to memorize the whole alphabet know A, B, C, and when they see the letters in order, they can double-check the letters and sounds and know for sure . . . no guessing!

Keep one of these bookmarks handy whenever your child is reading or writing, and watch reversals become a thing of the past.

BONUS 3: The #1 Optometrist-Recommended Guide for Reading

Dr. Karen Holinga’s preferred optometrist called her one day with two specific recommendations: stop giving gumballs as treats, and use this tool with children who struggle to keep their place on a page.

Dr. Karen didn't stop giving gumballs, but she did start using this tool when she reads with her students.

This low-tech tool helps beginning readers keep their place on the page. You’ll be thrilled by how much less distracted your child is once you incorporate this in your daily reading practice.

Yours free with your purchase.
