Online Resources

I recently discovered the Florida Center for Reading Research and it is an amazing treasure trove of activities for teachers and parents alike.

Florida Center for Reading Research

What I love about this website is that they've developed activities based on current research in reading.

If you go to their website, there's a search box in the upper right hand corner.  Enter what types of reading activities you're looking for and a menu will pop up and you can take your pick.  I like to print the activities out on cardstock, cut apart, laminate, and they're ready to use in your classroom or with your children.

There's also part of the website that deals with assessments for different age levels, and the "Teaching and Learning" section has information on what to do with struggling readers of all levels.

If you ever have some time to poke around their website,  you won't be disappointed.

If you've been to this website before, what's your favorite activity there?


  1. I love this website! I've been poking around in it for awhile. I'd like to print every center they have posted on there. I attended DIBELS training this past summer. DIBELS tied back to this website as a credible place to find remediation materials. That's great to know.

  2. I'm so glad it's helpful! This website really has a great amount of information, and the great part is that the activities are all based on real research. You'll have to let me know how they work with your kids!!
