Thanks Joy as my 4 year old is "reading" everything in sight and we are working diligently on letter/word recognition! This will be great!
This is awesome! Busy downloading… can't wait. Thanks so much. and great blog you have! xxx
Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for passing this along. I had gotten this two years ago I think, or there abouts and used it for my now 6year old. She loved it! I was just getting ready to try it with my 5 year old son, and lost it all when my computer crashed. This is just so incredible. I encourage everyone to try this program! Thank you again!!!

Thanks for passing this along! Awesome!
Just want to say thanks for blessing us with this great resource! As a new homeschool mom, I need all the help I can get!
Thanks for the great opportunity! My daughter is physically handicapped and partially bed-bound, so she uses three different computers, 2 PC's and a macbook. Can we get links to three different emails (hers, mine and my husbands) so we are compliant with the single download license? It is just for ehr, btu we never know with her health which computer she will be using.
Thanks once again!
@VLMaples, I really don't know how to answer that. You may want to see about contacting Funnix directly to ask.
Hi! I signed up about 4 hours ago but haven't gotten the email confirmation yet even though I did get the page letting me know to expect one. Have you heard of others experiencing this?
I haven't heard of anyone having trouble with this. Did you get the email link yet?

@Denise, I received my email right away. Make sure and check you spam box. Good luck!

@Denise, I tried signing up last year when they had the same deal, and I never ever got the e-mail. I even e-mailed them and asked, and never got a response and I checked both my spam and junk mail boxes. I'm trying again this year.
Heather in Ohio says
@Denise, did just now get mine, so it worked for me this year! Hopefully you've gotten yours by now.
Awesome and thank-you for letting everyone know.

Thank you for sharing this! I used the book "Teach Your Child How to Read in 100 Easy Lessons" to teach my son to read, but my daughter is not as excited about it and complains when I pull out the "yellow book". Funnix is developed from that same Distar Reading Program but utilizes the computer. I think my daughter might find this more exciting and engaging. I'm excited to try it.
First, thank you for sharing all your wonderful ideas and resources. I just recently discovered your blog and love it.
My question is regarding the needed 2GB of memory. That is a lot, how do you accommodate for it? I have a Mac (tiger) and from what I can see I only have 1 GB. I am not especially knowledgeable in the hardware department. Any advice is appreciated.

I am a home school mum from Nigeria, West Africa. Over here, I am seen as a stubborn oddity. I am a pioneer.
No matter, my husband and I know what the lord requires of us. We aim to do just that!
Apart from Donna Young's website, your website is by far the most helpful. Every page is filled with needed info.
You encourage me to keep on. Thanks so much for the work you do!
