Learning to read is important and an integral part of learning and parents play a vital role. Reading with your child and doing activities related to books starting at BIRTH will help your child to develop early literacy skills and hopefully foster of love of literature.
Here are the resources I turn to and recommend when teaching our children how to read.
My Go To Reading Sites ONLINE:
If you want the nitty-gritty of helping your child to read, this sight may not be “pretty” and full of pictures, but it is full of useful information.
This is my personal favorite site for reading the latest research and teaching techniques. It is well organized with a variety of different approaches for teaching reading.
If you haven’t stopped by Scholastic Parents Online, then I strongly suggest you check them out. There is even a search bar at the top of the page where you can search their articles by your child’s specific age.
Free online reading stories and games in both English and Spanish, all about the BIG red dog we know and love – CLIFFORD
A good site for finding dolch sight word lists, phrases, worksheets, and activities.
6. Reading A-Z:
This is a pay-for service, but has a good amount of high interest leveled readers for parents wanting to get their hands on more books at their child’s level.
