"I am a Special Education Resource teacher who works with children in grades K-5. Two years ago I found the Crazy Shorts, Crazy Longs, and Crazy Mores card games in a catalogue. I LOVE the games! One of my Fifth grade boys has struggled with Reading ever since he began school. After a few months of playing the games a few times a week, his reading drastically improved. When I talked with him about it, he said, “Ms. Wheeler, it’s those crazy games. I have learned more about reading from those card games than anything else.”

"I learned about your cards years ago at an International Dyslexia Conference...I loan out materials to my students to use for additional practice during the week, so they get used a lot, and are a favorite of my students! You know…….any chance to beat the teacher is fun :-) I am also doing inservice with reading specialists in my area, as well as classroom teachers, who really have not been taught how to work with dyslexic students. Just sent your link to several of them so don’t be surprised if you get a glut of orders from the Charlottesville area……haha!"

"We are working on a study at a University here in North Carolina, and Crazy Longs are just the only game out there that we have found that works to help children learn their long vowels".

...I am so delighted with how quickly they caught on. They are reading words and I think they are surprising themselves! Wow! What a ride! Thanks!
Mary Cullinan, Primary Teacher
...The kids loved them and they are everything I was expecting. Thank you for developing a fun way to review the phonemes and graphemes of our language.
