A few weeks ago, I got an Email from a local teacher sharing a Reading Website she thought might interest me. The site is called "Free Reading"It's taken me a while to get around to visiting the site in depth; but she was right. I didn't want this site to get buried in a sidebar link on this site without sharing it out front first. I hope you will take time to look through this valuable resource. I could try to explain it, but they know what they do best, I have taken this text directly from their site:
"Free-Reading is an “open source” instructional program that helps teachers teach early reading. Because it's open source, it represents the collective wisdom of a wide community of teachers and researchers. It's designed to contain a scope and sequence of activities that can support and supplement a typical “core” or “basal” program. " They offer ideas and lessons on everything from letter sound activities, letter writing activities, vocabulary, and more. They have many online videos that show lessons 'in action". I hope you will not only look at the site, but consider making use of the resources found there as well as contribute your own ideas (it's the nature of "open source"). The site again is "Free Reading".
