Lesson Planning - Reading

I'm having so much fun with this series and am enjoying reading the linked posts each week. To see the past subjects please visit our Resources Page.

Are your kids learning to read or enjoying good books? This is the first year I have had three capable readers.

Here are my top three Learning to Read resources.
Leap Frog Videos
Starfall
Active Phonics Game

After the kids learned their letters, sounds and a few basic words they read progressively more difficult books to me daily. Before long they were reading.

Last year we spent about an hour reading every day. Sometimes I read to the kids, sometimes they read to me, sometimes they read to each other and some days they did silent reading. 

    Here are some of the books I'm hoping to read with the kids this year.

    First Grade Daughter
    50 Famous Stories Retold by James Baldwin
    Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling
    Paddle to the Sea by Hollings C Hollings
    Jataka Tales

    Fifth Grade Son
    The Jungle Book
    Rocks, Rivers and Earth
    Story of the World Volume 2 - Middle Ages
    Jataka Tales
    Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt

    Seventh Grade Daughter
    Indian Folk and Fairy Tales
    Kim
    Cat of Bubastes
