Welcome to Carjug's reading website. This site will be useful to you if you have a reading problem. English is hard to read. 40% of English words are oddly spelled. Words like who, what, and where cause problems for people with reading trouble because they cannot be sounded out. Vowel sounds are the worst offenders with over 500 common spellings. This website uses color to prevent reading mistakes caused by oddly spelled words. People learn best by doing things right, not wasting time sounding out. Start  by  spending 15 minutes reading these Tongue Twisters and poems

  Tongue Twisters      Patriotic Stuff     This Land is Your Land

   If you enjoy reading with color help, read as many of the poems as possible, then re-read them in black and white. This will improve your reading speed and sight word vocabulary. If you did not enjoy the color, try listening to recorded books, enjoy non-fiction that interests you, and read aloud for 15 minutes every day to train your brain.
