TOS Review: See-N-Read

What is a See-N-Read reading tool? See-n-Read Reading tools helps readers read faster, increase their understanding, and fluency. It makes it easier for readers to concentrate and keep their focus on where they are reading on the page by filtering out distractions such as other words on the page or pictures. The clear reading window shows one line of text while the transparant finish around the window allows the reader to see what's coming and move to the next line without interupting their flow of reading. I received 3 different See-N-Read reading tools to use and review.

Photobucket

Original See-N-Read- Has a clear solid read bar. Available in two sizes Book Size (5 1/2 x 3) pricing starts out at $2.99 for one and Document Size ( 8 1/2 x 3) $3.49 for one. To see the complete price list for the original See-N-Read click here.

The original See-N-Read would be most beneficial for people who skip words or lines while reading or have trouble focusing their eyes. It is also great for people for have trouble concentrating while reading or have large amounts of material to read that requires a alot of concentration. In our house it worked great for my struggling reader who is very easily distracted and his eyes wander around the page. It helped him to stay focused on what he was supposed to be reading. For my very advanced fast reader though, she said that it slowed her down so she is much happier reading without it.



Memory Mark- Instead of a clear solid read bar, the bar has been cut out to allow for writing notes, underlining, or highlighting without moving the tool off the page so the reader does not lose their place in the text. Also available in two sizes Book Size (5 1/2 x 3) $2.99 for one and Document Size (8 1/2 x 3 ) $3.49 for one. Here is the pricing list for odering more than one.

Memory Mark is a great little tool for anyone that needs to do write notes, underline, or highlight their work. It is great for workbooks, textbooks, documents, contracts, or grade books. Personally, I thought that Memory mark made a great Bible Study Tool!

We have been using a history program for the boys that is on computer CD. There are several pages of text that I have to read aloud every week. We used the eSee-N-Read for reading this text. Not only did it help the boys to know where I was in the reading, but it helped me to keep my place while I was reading and if I happened to get interrupted or distracted by one of the other children (not that that would ever happen.)


Overall, I was very impressed with all of the See-N-Read tools. They are very sturdy and the color they chose makes them not at all distracting. I love the Memory Mark and wish I had had something like that when I was in college! The eSee-N-Read was very helpful in keeping my place reading text on the computer. I could also see how it would be useful for data entry. Go to http://www.see-n-read.com/ to find out more about this line of products.
