The ONLY research-based reading intervention program available for FREE to teachers

Why BrightFish for Classrooms?

We believe in offering the best tools for our children and teachers. In the past, implementing a research-based reading program to help your struggling students would be time-consuming and expensive.

BrightFish for Classrooms was built for classrooms that can benefit from daily, structured reading practice, without taking away valuable teaching time. This makes it perfect for:

  • ELA learners
  • Students who need practice in key foundational reading skills
  • Students who need to improve their vocabulary, reading comprehension and fluency

Try us out. We know you will love BrightFish!

How can we help?

BrightFish Reading provides fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension through the use of:

  • Structured learning where children can set their own pace and goals
  • Fun games to keep your child motivated and engaged.
  • Badges and certificates provide a visual sense of accomplishment.
  • Constructive individualized real-time feedback.
  • Practice reading in a non-competitive, non-judgmental environment
  • An ever growing library of activities.

Thousands of students use BrightFish daily to improve their self-confidence, independence, and gain a feeling of success. 

How BrightFish is Implemented

Students are given a Cloze test to determine their current instructional reading level.

Teachers are able to review students' vocabulary and reading comprehension errors.

Week 3

Story 2 Completed

Week 5

Effective Intervention - Not Just Entertainment

Unlike other popular reading programs, BrightFish Reading is not designed as a source of entertainment to keep your child busy. Rather, we focus on fun repetitive reading activities that incrementally improve your child’s reading comprehension. Here are a few reasons why you and your child will love BrightFish Reading:

  • Quick 15 minute sessions, three times a week
  • Over 40+ fun reading activities

The Results Speak For Themselves

Jarred W is my nomination for “rising star” in BrightFish. Jarred is a grade 9 student who was tested at a grade 4 reading level.  For the school year 2018/19, he completed 67 stories all the way up to grade 10. He also increased 17% from his pretest to his mid-test. Not only has he achieved milestones in reading, but he is also an absolute joy to teach.

“BrightFish inspires me to read. Reading makes me a better person. Some of the stories have taught me information that I did not know, and it has increased my vocabulary a lot. I would like to thank the people who created the program. My year has been pretty great and fun!”
