Free online Books!

I tutor several fantastic first graders a couple days a week after school. When we have extra time we love to play online games! We always make time to visit

Where we do sight word bingo!

Today we visited this great website found here! It is from AOL Kids. It has several online books. Here are just a FEW Arthur stories available online...

My kids didn't want to leave tutoring- they wanted to keep watching books. It was great. Even though it was above their level they still enjoyed it. As each word is read it is also highlighted! Great way to introduce new words.

We are reading The Chocolate Touch this week in reading. Not a fan so far. Hopefully it grows on me. This site has really good questions to go along with chapters.

Also in order to celebrate next month (Black History Month) we decided to do a fictional read for our read-a-loud. It is titledJackie and Me. So far my kids really like it! Something to check out!

Hope everyone survived their Wednesday! I'm seriously craving chili or cheese soup. I can't wait to head up to my parents this weekend and cook something. Last night I made vegetable fajita quesadillas---amazing If I do say so myself.
