Saturday’s Sites

Here are a couple of recent sites I’ve found that I wanted to share with you.  Good stuff!

  • Weston Woods, a division of Scholastic, has free study guides you can download as PDFs on their online catalog for their new releases, bestsellers, and other books (left hand sidebar).  On each study guide, there is a summary of the text, learning objectives, before & after reading activities, and other related titles!

            Here’s an example study guide for Chicka, Chicka Boom Boom!

  • Annie, from The Moffatt Girls, has launched her reading program called Ready2Read.  It’s designed for kids who are just beginning to read and it’s free!  She posted her first unit yesterday, which covers 5 sight words & the -at and -an word families.  She even includes lesson plans for her unit.  I like her word family activities because they are similar to Words Their Way.  She has 7 more units to post, so we have more to look forward to!  I hope you’ll check it out.
