Just wanted to tell you how much we are enjoying your trugs games since buying them from you at st john's school last year. My 5 year old is practising her sounding out without frustration - in fact enjoying it! And my 8 year old is enjoying trying harder words. They especially enjoy Take It. Thanks again!
We still play - when our 2 year old allows! My 5 year old is sounding out much more in general with less frustration in general. Thanks again,

Overview of Research Completed: February 2012
As my research project shows, TRUGs clearly work to engage pupils (of all reading abilities) in reading. The reason I think TRUGs is so successful is the game element - all children love the competitiveness. They are suitable not only for emerging or struggling readers, but also for those children who are gifted readers, in that they are an excellent tool in developing vocabulary.
I also advocate the use of TRUGs in classrooms when guided reading is taking place; this is a daily activity and invariably a teacher will have 4 to 5 groups to cater for. With only one TA it is only possible to have two adult guided groups, therefore, you need to have vauable reading activities and TRUGs fit s this requirement. I have often come across teahers using 'holding' activities which are of low learning value as it can be sometimes difficult to find actvities that the children can do independently.
We have also developed some TRUGs leaders in the school, where gifted/more able readers, can still play the game with developing readers, as they have the knowledge that the other children are reading the word correctly. This works wonders - the more able children love the responsibility of 'leading' the group while the less able still have a chance to 'beat' or win a game against a more able reader - genius!
The Trciky word boxes are ideal for truggling readers but also brilliant for Reception - this is why I believe TRUGs is an excellent resource to use across the Primary age range. It is not possible to learn Tricky words phonetically, therefore it is just practice and repetitive exposure to the words that enable children to learn them. I think that is why you had so many orders from our Reception and Year 1 parents.
I would totally endorse TRUGs as a remarkable learning resource - there is nothing else quite like it (not that I've come across anyway).

I have been a specialist Language and Communication teacher for the last nine years, and I am currently working in Folkestone All Age Academy in Kent. I have been using TRUGS on a regular basis now for over two years. I have used all three of the school sets with children from Y2 through to Y10. When I first got my hands on the game I was delighted with its simplicity and practicality. The rules for playing the games were straightforward and easy to pass onto students (and thankfully staff!) and the ‘take up’ was pretty immediate. From the start I noticed the students desire to play the game; from the natural primary enthusiasm (P2 – P5) to the demand/requests to play the game with Y9 and Y10 foundation students. The ‘Guess it’ (now Get it), ‘Match it’ and ‘Take it’ games prove to be the most popular, and the ‘Use it’ is great for sentence/paragraph/story-starters.
I have used and continue to use Trugs in the following circumstances:
• To support and improve students with poor reading/spelling/phonic skills
• To assist with the learning for EAL students and facilitate correct letter pronunciation
• To support and compliment a multi-sensory computer programme for dyslexic students
• To enhance literacy extension programmes in the academy
• Promote fun in the learning of phonics to improve reading/spelling
• To improve social skills/turn taking skills with ASD/BESD students
Trugs is also flexible in that the games can be differentiated further by the way that they are played; I have asked for a sentence to be made with the word being read (shows understanding and correct use) and extended this by making the sentences link in to the previous one!
The nicest attribute to Trugs is that the students are able to play the games easily, and teach their peers easily. Also the fact that the games encourage the social aspects of turn taking and game playing skills that are not played via a hand a hand set is a benefit too.
