    I used it during writing camp at Rocky Mountain Camp for Dyslexic Kids. Had some great ideas. It’s a good addition to my collection. Gives some variations on the same things I’m doing with Carraker’s and King’s work. This is nice because if you have a student that is really struggling you can vary how you teach the same information.
