“I was hesitant about using another “program” to help my students. BrightFish Reading exceeded my expectations. Kids were eager to come to my class to work on their BrightFish stories. They wanted to correctly and quickly complete a story. My office walls are full of their certificates and the students take pride seeing their name on the wall when they complete stories!”

“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!"

How BrightFish Works

Construct content and build skills
Fiction and nonfiction passages are assigned to a grade level by Lexile® measure and broken down into manageable chunks.

Practice, motivate, improve
Constructive feedback provides instructional support while gaming techniques and points-based rewards ensure students stay motivated to read and improve.

Track results & remediate
Teachers view class progress in real time with color-coded reports and drill-down details. Data can be used for remediation and small group instruction.
