Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

 Learning Dynamics Reading System helps children develop language and comprehension skills through activities that teach sequencing, rhyming, classification, same/different, and opposites.

They learn letters and sounds through music and fun object lessons. As the children begin learning the letters and sounds, we teach the blending concept and they begin reading words and books within the first 3½ weeks of beginning the program. Then we broaden the reading experience to solidify skills and build self-confidence.

Learning Dynamics Reading System has been used and fine-tuned in preschool through second-grade classrooms for 20 years. Students who use it for only 15 minutes, three times a week, reach a beginning third-grade reading level in only a few months. Learning Dynamics builds a solid reading foundation with:

Phonics methodology

  1. A structured, progressive program
  2. Multi-sensory lesson activity
  3. With each new letter and reading rule, children practice only what has been learned. Children gain confidence quickly and show measurable results with each lesson. They have fun with appealing games, songs, and lesson activities in an easy first reading experience

How is Learning Dynamics better?

Learning Dynamics Reading consistently outperforms other curriculums by getting kids motivated to learn. With our system of teaching short, systematic, and engaging lessons, kids learn decoding, proper phonemic awareness, and immediate application through the appropriate books of only what they have learned up to that point. Learning Dynamics is the only program that provides books that contain only the material they have learned up to that point. Kids’ confidence stays high, and they believe they can do it. Each child will end up with their own library of books that they keep, and this helps them to quickly take ownership and gain excitement for learning.

What type of research has been done on the program?

The Research Base was conducted by the University of Oregon

Learning Dynamics Reading is the result of a long term (and ongoing, over 30 years of classroom experience) study of kids learning to read. Learning Dynamics has been refined and improved through classroom research over the years, using a variety of teachers and student populations. In test classrooms, student reading levels are assessed regularly during the school year.

Does it complement our core program?


This program works seamlessly with any core program. It does not take anything away but simply complements what you are currently doing. The only adjustment that is usually made is to align the way our letters and sounds are introduced with your core program.

Who is this program appropriate for?

Our program is for anyone. Whether you are an adult learning to read for the first time or a Pre-K reader just jumping in, the process and elements of learning to read are the same. These elements are all contained in this program. However, we understand this program is designed for the primary grades. (Ages 3-7) In the event of an older child looking to learn, we often use them as a “reading tutor,” and they can learn by going through the process with the younger child.

In public schools, this program is used in Pre-K, Kindergarten, first grade, special needs programs,   intervention programs, etc.

Can I use this for multiple children? 

Yes! We recommend you purchase the complete system, and an extra workbook per additional child using the program. That way they only need to share the books and flashcards but have their own activity pages and rewards.

If I have never been a teacher, what training is necessary?

Learning Dynamics was created with the parent in mind. Whether you are a credentialed teacher or a stay-at-home mom, anyone can follow and teach this simple program. Each lesson is structured in a very easy-to-follow manner with everything you need.

How much preparation is required?

Next to no preparation is needed. Simply follow the instructions in the parent manual for each lesson. Have the reward game pieces ready for the end of the lesson, then simply follow the manual as prompted. The activities are pre-printed in the student workbooks, so there is no need to make photocopies.
