Summary:Age Range: 5-8 (Grades K-3, with parental supervision). This website offers a free, multi-media, open-source instructional reading program that helps educators teach early literacy.
Description:It contains a 40-week series of reading lessons covering phonological awareness and phonics activities designed for a typical kindergarten or first grade core reading program. This program is also used as an “intervention program” for kindergarten or first grade students who need additional help with learning to read. That said, (and the early emphasis on learning to read at too young an age by schools aside) the resources here can easily be used for children of all ages when they are developmentally ready to learn to read.

As mentioned at the website, FreeReading provides scope and sequence activities in the following categories:
  • Phonological Awareness: Students learn to blend and segment the sounds in spoken words.

  • Letter Sounds: Students learn to say the most common sounds for printed letters.

  • Sounding Out: Students learn to produce and blend the letter-sound patterns in written words. For the first time, they read.

  • Word Recognition: Students learn to read written words without sounding them out. (Some educators refer to these words as “sight words.”)

  • Irregular Words: Students learn to read high-frequency irregular words such as the and was by sight.

  • Advanced Phonics: Students learn to read words with features such as inflected endings, silent letters, and multiple syllables.

  • Letter Combinations: Students learn to say the most common sounds for letter combinations such as sh and oa.

  • Letter Writing: Students learn the correct way to write letters.

  • And more.
All of this is accomplished with free, downloadable and printable lessons and materials such as picture cards, word cards, flashcards, decodable passages, word list generators, and much more.

When you get to the site, use the Teaching Tools link on the left side of the screen as it provides a good overview of the site and how to use it to your student’s best advantage.

This site provides a wide variety of early literacy tools covering phonological awareness, reading and spelling fluency, and writing comprehension.
