Reading is one of my favorite things to do. And I get super excited for every single amazing a-ha reading moment I get to witness. I remember those magical moments while homeschooling my two children and also with the students I have tutored over the past 25 years.
Where letters blended into words and this whole reading thing became real.
And those moments are the best!
But having the best reading resources is one very important part to making those moments happen. So, I wanted to share a whole slew of amazing reading resources that I have used or seen used to teach reading. (I’ll put the other language arts resources in another one, but these resources are all related only to reading.) There are definitely more, but here are 88 amazing reading resources to help you create those a-ha reading moments with your kiddos.
Read it now, and bookmark it for later. And enjoy creating those magical reading moments with your kiddos.
