Control + Alt + Delete

Originally posted on the ReadingGlue.com blog.

If you are a windows user, then you probably know what the Crtl + Alt + Del command does. It basically is a way to kill off a process that is not responding. Over the past few months, we have been working hard to develop solutions for parents to ease their pain of practicing reading with their child. The problem is that each parent struggles with unique problems and we have failed to execute on a solution that works for everyone. This past weekend we decided to hit Ctrl + Alt + Del and start over. We are going back to the drawing board. Instead of jumping into the process of developing solutions we want to truly understand the root of the problems parents face. Only once we understand these problems will we be able to develop a solution that eases the pain parents and children face when practicing reading. If you are a parent of a child in the grades pre-k through 5, then we want to talk to you about the struggles you face when reading with your child at home. The process only takes 20 minutes. If you are in the Chicagoland area, then we would love to treat you to a cup of coffee and have a quick chat. If you can't meet with us in person, then we could set up a phone call or even online chat. After our discussion, you would get the opportunity to help us design and test a solution that transforms the way reading is practiced outside of the classroom. If you are interested then please fill out the form on our contact page, and we will get in touch with you to set something up. Share the link with friends or family if you think they might be able to help as well. In addition to starting over with the development process of Reading Glue, we are proud to announce that starting next week we will have regular blog posts from reading experts. These posts will showcase tips, tricks, and exercises you can use to help enhance practice time with young readers. These posts will be ideal for parents who are looking to improve their knowledge of best practices when it comes to reading. These posts will also be very helpful for teachers who are looking for ways to improve their reading sessions in the classroom. Please feel free to leave us a comment if you have any particular subjects you are interested in hearing about. We want to thank everyone who has supported Reading Glue so far, and we look forward to working closely with the community as we develop tools that everyone can benefit from.
