Students love these books. They can take them home, colour them, read them to their families and make them their own.

Text Complexity: "The place to begin with is the student’s reading level.”

Text Complexity: "The place to begin with is the student’s reading level.” | Learning to Read | Scoop.it

In the past I myself embraced what Fountas and Pinnel called “a balanced literacy approach.”  Under this model classroom reading would be made up of the following components:

independent reading (at the student’s independent reading level)guided reading of a whole-group text (at median instructional reading level for class)teacher read aloud (slightly above median instructional level). 


The common core call for increased text complexity seems to fit well with the “guided reading” portion of the block.

My classroom theme is always "monsters," so I think thi a cute game that could be used during my students' computer time to bolster phonics skills.

I like that this resource includes consonant clusters and blends - students need a lot of practise with this when they are learning to read.
