Here's what teachers are saying about The Active Reader!

Ana Mandaric - Customer

"I am a high school teacher and often students come to me with gaps in their reading and writing skills. These challenges are often overlooked as they are passed from one grade to the next, so when they reach me, these gaps are very obvious. The Active Reader targets those basic literacy skills and helps children to build a strong foundation that will serve them well throughout their entire academic career."

Martha Jodhan - Customer

"I’m a teacher and graduated with a degree in ECE. I use The Active Reader with my younger students, and it’s amazing to see how much it helps with basic literacy and phonics. The kids love the activities and tracing the letters. I definitely would recommend The Active Reader for ECE!"

Karen Burke - Customer

"I have been working as a literacy specialist for the last 3 years. I like The Active Reader because it includes many of the same structured literacy techniques I use with my students. Some children need alternative strategies when it comes to learning to read. I never run out of activities with The Active Reader, and I highly recommend this to teachers looking for a teaching tool that works."

  • Increases confidence

Built by literacy experts, teachers, and parents

Robyn and Rebecca, founders of The Active Reader, have been well-established in the fields of education and literacy for over a decade. Rebecca is a teacher and has taught many subjects from JK to Grade 12. Robyn is a literacy specialist and early on in her career, identified a major gap in the area of foundational literacy education. As a result, Robyn has built a successful business working with children who struggle with reading and writing.

When Rebecca's first child turned one, she began researching products that would help to encourage and grow her daughter's love of reading and learning while also targeting foundational skill development. After many fruitless searches, Rebecca saw an opportunity and approached Robyn with the idea to create a tool that would give parents and educators access to proven and effective literacy techniques.

Robyn and Rebecca want to empower teachers with the tools to teach students foundational literacy skills. The Active Reader is a play-based product that helps educators engage with their students while using multi-sensory activities to get a head start on early reading, pre-school readiness, and future classroom success. Experience, engage, and play and bring reading to life within your classroom.

Make reading come alive in your classroom!
