Our exercises focus on strengthening basic skills up through rapid sight recognition of words and math facts. Our diagnostic software recommends a starting point for these exercises.
Each grade appropriate skill builder exercise is organized into chunks that are separately mastered. One exercise will normally have multiple sets of equal difficulty. The learner works on a set until mastered. Then the learner moves to the next set.
A set is divided into pages. One works with each selected page one at a time during a session.
Our Skill Builder Designer Module allows you to add your own content for custom education. You can easily develop a Skill Builder that is suited to your reader’s needs. Materials developed with our Skill Builder Designer Module can be saved for personal use, shared within a unit (classroom, school), or saved into our Skill Builder Library for use by anyone using the Reading Success Lab software.

In just five sessions with the Skill Builder Module I could hear a difference in the oral reading fluency of my three least confident readers. They’re highly motivated to improve with the Skill Builder Module Software. With the Skill Builder Module it is easy to keep track of each student’s progress to share with parents at conference time. No special expertise is required to work with the Skill Builder Module program. I’ve trained volunteers in fifteen minutes to effectively work with my most reluctant readers. I’m very excited about a new Designer Module that allows me to program the vocabulary I’ll be teaching in novels and other units, so that my students get to preview and practice these words. The Skill Builder Module software is making learning more accessible for my at-risk students every day.
