Starfall

15 Jun

If you’ve been around a classroom for long, you’ve probably heard of this website.  Starfall is a great website for beginning readers, and they are working on adding more for kids who are more proficient.  It is a great website, with interactive books for children, developed to focus on phonics skills while keeping things fun.  There are also games, printable books, and other interactive activities, all with the focus of keeping learning fun!

The Reading Lady

4 Jun

This website, The Reading Lady, is written by Nationally Board Certified teacher/reading coach, Laura Kump.  What appealed to me most as a teacher, was the documents section.  She has free, downloadable lesson plans, posters, charts and other items that provide fantastic guides for targeting reading and writing strategies.
