Crazy Cards Testimonials
Science of Reading Phonics Card Games

"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 have been using these cards forever! Kids enjoy the game and don't even realize they're getting phonics learning to stick.”         ​

"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 :-)"

"My students love these games!  They are an excellent resource for building decoding skills and fluency.  The best part is the students don’t realize how many words they are reading!" 😊

"Thank you for your amazing games and activities! My students are engaged with the activities, and decoding practice doesn't feel like "work" to them. Between your materials and everything from Marnie at Reading Simplified, I know my kids have everything that they need for reading!"
