Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week – we sure did… A mid-winter break at Kalahari Indoor Waterpark, and we’re all ready to dive (haha) back into work!
We got home at the perfect time, though… Once or twice a year, the folks over at Funnix.com offer their reading program for free! We downloaded it last year, and I wrote about it in the Language Arts chapter of my book, but since that doesn’t come out until April, and this year’s free download is only good until February 16th, I thought I’d mention it now.
If you have a beginning reader, or teach early elementary grades, you’ll want to check this out. This is a complete reading program developed by a retired professor of education from the University of Oregon and writer of more than 50 educational programs for SRA/McGraw-Hill. It is comprehensive and engaging… and fun!
Here are a few screen-shots:
Even if you already have a reading program, or your kids attend a public or private school, this is a good way to supplement reading instruction for those little ones that want to learn how to read faster than their classroom teacher can teach them, or for those who may struggle and need some additional – but fun – remediation.
Don’t forget to download it by February 16th! You only have a week! Go to the Funnix homepage where you’ll see a link. You’ll be asked to fill out your contact information including your name, address, phone number, and email address. When you’re finished, you’ll receive a link via email with instructions on how to download the program. Enjoy!
