About The Reading Patch

Unlocking the Joy of Reading for Young Minds

Welcome to the Reading Patch, your partner in nurturing young minds and fostering a lifelong love for reading. Our mission is to empower children with the invaluable skill of reading, igniting their imaginations and opening doors to a world of endless possibilities.  Teach a child to read, and they will learn for a lifetime!

Our Journey

At Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, we understand the transformative power of reading. Our journey began with a simple yet profound goal: to help students achieve reading proficiency through reading confidence.  A confident reader loves to read.  A struggling reader does not like to read and does not want to practice because they do not feel confident.  Through years of dedication and expertise, we have developed an innovative and comprehensive approach that has touched the lives of over a million young learners.

Our Approach

We take pride in offering a structured program that takes children from their first steps in reading to the exciting realm of second or third-grade proficiency. Our 25-lesson introductory program establishes a strong foundation, while our 100+lesson curriculum propels young readers to even greater heights.

Empowering Through Technology

In a digital age, we recognize the importance of engaging content. Our on-demand video reading lessons captivate young minds, making learning an interactive and enjoyable experience. Our app, which has been downloaded over 60,000 times, has garnered rave reviews, reflecting its effectiveness in nurturing young readers.

Building Confidence, Eliminating Frustration

We firmly believe that a struggling reader’s journey begins with confidence. We understand the frustration that can accompany early reading struggles, which is why we prioritize creating a nurturing and supportive environment. Our approach centers on eliminating reading frustration and fostering confidence in young readers. A confident reader becomes an enthusiastic reader, and enthusiasm becomes a lifelong companion.

Expanding Horizons

Our commitment to literacy education extends beyond the digital realm. We proudly offer a best-selling handwriting curriculum on Amazon, catering to the holistic development of essential skills. Additionally, our collection of reading-focused books and activities enrich the learning experience, covering alphabet mastery, sight words, phonics, and handwriting.
