In honor of the release of All About Reading Level 1, I'm hosting a Level 1 giveaway!
The giveaway will include the Level 1 Kit (Teacher's manual, Student Materials Packet, and 3 readers: Run, Bug, Run!, The Runt Pig, and Cobweb the Cat). This link also has links to samples of each of these items
AND the Deluxe Interactive Reading Kit, which includes the Letter Tiles, Magnets, Phonogram CD-ROM, Reading Divider Cards, AAR Tote Bag, Review Box for holding the cards, and Star Stickers.
My 12 year-old was looking at the materials today, and said, "I wish I was a kid again!" (Ha! That made me chuckle, she feels so "old!") "Mom, don't you wish we had these when we were little? Let's read a story." We opened up Run, Bug, Run, and she kept saying, "just one more!" and she read about 6 of them, LOL!
The pictures really are adorable, and she's right, I DO wish I'd had this when my kids were little. We struggled a lot with finding materials that would really help develop fluency, would give us good decoding tips, and would make the process a little less painful. I think this really would have helped them AND me!
