Freereading.....free but invaluable! A suggested resource for vocabulary instruction in the classroom.

 freereading


FreeReading is a free, high-quality, open-source reading program addressing literacy development for grades K-3. FreeReading has created the framework for intervention programs supporting K-6 literacy. FreeReading is invaluable and can be more beneficial than any one reading program.

I use Freereading mainly to find vocabulary instructional plans to go with some of our best loved children's books used in elementary classrooms everywhere. The vocabulary plans provide a list of the best vocabulary words to focus on within each text and give explicit and complete instructional plans on how to introduce and work with these words in efficient, effective fun ways, making learning new words exciting!
