Welcome to the Reading Newsletter! This is a free newsletter that comes out weekly. This newsletter will provide parents, teachers, and tutors with information about reading education to school-aged children. You will learn about very effective comprehension strategies, great books for kids, reading activities, teaching vocabulary, phonics, and fluency, reading problems, and how to encourage reading. I am a parent of two children and also a teacher and private tutor who is currently studying to be a Reading Specialist. I love to read and want to help others become life-long lovers of all types of literature!
You will find lots of great articles here. Some recent articles are about wordless picture books, the benefits of a read aloud, and book reviews with lesson plans. You will also find lots of information about comprehension strategies that are very effective.
The Reading Newsletter is sent out in text only format, so it's easy to read no matter what kind of system, cell phone or PDA you choose to receive it at.
