Phonics Success Stories and Feedback

From Reading Teachers, Parents, Principals, and School Districts

“I once read a post by another teacher in an online discussion about Secret Stories being the “lifeblood of her classroom.” So of course, I had to try it. And wow, that really nailed it. I couldn’t agree more with everything that she said. The Secrets really do permeate every aspect of our day, not just when reading and writing, but ALL DAY LONG, and even outside the classroom. I have heard others say that Secrets are the most-used tool in their classrooms, but I would go a step further and say that Secret Stories has made me the teacher that I’ve always wanted to be. They don’t just make it easy to teach reading, they make it FUN! And not just for the kids, but for me too! I can totally relate now to all of those teachers in those videos, as that’s how I feel every day in my classroom when I’m telling the Secrets to my kids.”
