Discreet and not childish-looking, the reading ruler is made of a combination of opaque and transparent plastic that both underlines the text and highlights it in a coloured tint.
Simply read the text through either of the tinted plastic strips of your selected colour, and track down the page: broad strip for paragraphs; narrow strip for single lines.
The Reading Ruler:
Narrow (app. 1 cm) strip for highlighting single lines of text
Broad (app. 2.5 cms) strip for scanning ahead in a paragraph, and for studying diagrams, tables, columns of figures etc.
Text marker (a solid line on the edge of the broad strip) for tracking down a paragraph
Colours can be combined to create up to 30 tints with the 10 + 1 free pack.
Ideal for all ages – nursery to adult.
Differences between the Duo Window Rulers and the Plain Window Rulers:
DUO WINDOW READING RULERS: are divided into a narrow reading window and a wide reading window by an opaque strip. People who have difficulties keeping their focus on the line being read find this design useful. Focus can be further confined by taping paper over the wide transparent window a quarter of an inch below the opaque part of the ruler, so that all words except the present line are completely blocked out.
PLAIN WINDOW READING RULERS: are the same size, price and colours as the Duo Window Reading Rulers, but with only one window and a tracking line half an inch (1 cm) from the edge. They have no opaque strip in the middle. Confident readers who struggle with visual stress often prefer plain because there is no interruption to the flow of text.
