Testimonials

“I have been teaching for 11 years, and I’ve never found any vocabulary program that aims to engage students more than Rhymes with Reason. Rhymes with Reason aligns well with my classroom and school goals of preparing students for Common Core testing, SATs, ACTs, and college. I really appreciate how the program is explicitly aligned with Common Core Standards! Thank you.”

Elena Samaniego, 9th Grade English Laguna Creek High School, Elk Grove, CA

“Our school, every year, almost without fail, attempts to implement a new vocabulary program, but I can say that Rhymes with Reason, in my classroom, has been more effective than the rest, presumably because it connects with what students are actually listening to and interested in during their own free time.”

Phil Brophy, Hackensack Schools, New Jersey

“Rhymes with Reason responds to an important gap in our current education system where many students' intelligences remain untapped and unseen. [...] The development of this product has been an inspiration and I believe it can help set a higher standard for all educators to see every student and make every effort to tap into their many abilities.”

Sophia Collas, international education professional, graduate of Teachers College, Columbia University
