I am using RWT in my second grade bilingual classroom. All but four or five of my 17 students have finished RWT at least once. Your program exceeds all my expectations!!! They love it so much that they want to go through it again and again. One boy straight from Mexico, who knows (knew) no English, finished the program. I can’t figure that out – How did he do it? This is ESL at its best. Thanks for making my job infinitely easier.
