This is one of many supplemental vowel stories from the Magic Reading Patterns (MRP) curriculum— a fun and unique comprehensive reading program designed to quickly build the confidence and fluency of struggling learners.
Each lesson features a fanciful story with whimsical drawings followed by skill work to help students master the new vocabulary and build their fluency, while requiring them to write in complete sentences with correct spelling.
The MRP program is so highly sequenced that students are often astounded at how quickly they have learned to read, while tutors remark on how the stories and skill work “teach themselves.”
While originally designed for students who were dyslexic, MRP has been used successfully to boost reading achievement with all types of learners, including those who are gifted or English Language Learners. If you would like to find out more about this innovative program, contact Carolyn Steiner at
