About Me


My name is Janna Brenhaug, and I have been a Certified Barton Tutor since 2009. In my tutoring experiences, I was finding that many of my students needed more practice of present and review of earlier lessons. So, I designed Spelling Success card games as a reinforcement tool to go along with the Barton Reading & Spelling® lessons. The card games have been a great aid to use with my students over the years.

Students love to play these games! The games provide a nice break half way through or at the end of a challenging tutoring session. Playing these games, students feel good about themselves. Learning happens while students are having fun.


“Barton tutors will enjoy using these beautiful full-color card decks to play quick games with students -- either as a reward for hard work, or to reinforce and practice a hard concept.

Every Barton tutor who has purchased them raves about them -- and the fact that they can play three different games with each card deck, and that the decks are so affordable.”

- Susan Barton, Developer, Barton Reading & Spelling System

"I just wanted to tell you how much my students enjoy the Spelling Success games. Even though my students in Levels 8, 9, and 10 have mastered these skills, they still enjoy playing the games any chance they get. The pictures are so engaging that all of my students love them, no matter what their age. I'll be buying multiple copies of each game for all of the students who are asking to borrow them so they can keep playing at home."

- Kelly Haws, Certified Barton Tutor and Dyslexia Testing Specialist

"I like these game cards so much because I remember their pictures and the sounds they make. I always look forward to playing these card games because they are so fun to play!"

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
