Reading Bear - Learn to read for free!

Reading Bear - Learn to read for free! | Technology Lessons 4 Teachers - Preschool Resources | Scoop.it

From the people of WatchKnowLearn, comes a new site designed to help kids learn to read. Reading Bear is a free service that teaches children to read by introducing phonics principles painlessly & systematically, while teaching new vocabulary. Students can control the pace of each lesson to match their needs.

 

After each lesson on Reading Bear, students can take quizzes to practice what they have learned. The quizzes present a picture & a set of words. Students have to match the correct word to the picture that they see. Students receive instant feedback from the narrator on each question in the quiz.

 

Reading Bear would be a good independent activity or an activity that children work through with the assistance of a parent or teacher.
