Reading Rockets!

While surfing the Net today, I found the website for Reading Rockets–a fun TV show on PBS that teaches educators and caregivers about the stages of early literacy development. I love this site because it is filled with straight forward articles on how to teach reading and reading research. In addition, it is filled will streaming videos of teachers in real classrooms across the States modeling best practices around reading pedagogy. Check out this video on spelling and word families. I also like this video on invented spelling! -Anna

    I’ve also been to the Cyberchase website (on PBS), which focuses on math. It’s organized by skill and the kids have found it super fun. The site is also easy for kids to navigate on their own. It has all kinds of games on patterns and number sense. The directions to kids are read aloud, and kids can read the directions on the screen.

    Have you heard of Cyberchase? It’s another show/website by PBS, but it focuses on math. I have found it great to help kids with learning to listen and read directions. A voice reads directions to kids as they read.
