Today, while on a flight to Florida en route to give a FreeReading presentation, I spent some time going through emails and resources I bookmarked over the last few months. While doing so, I came across an email from my friend Cynthia recommending that I look at Steck-Vaughn’s Professional Development Resources. Once I arrived at my hotel this evening, I took a look at the site and was quite impressed by the number of free and high quality research articles and classroom resources in the areas of phonics/phonological awareness, vocabulary, comprehension and fluency.
For example, take a look at:
- Goldilocks and the Three Bears (Readers Theater, found in the fluency section of the site)
- The story map chart (found in the comprehension resources)
- The Frayer Model worksheet (found in the vocabulary section of the site)
- The Amazing Alliteration worksheet (found in the phonological awareness resources)
This is definitely a resource to bookmark for use during summer school or next fall!
