Early Literacy Interventions #3:

Resources.  We need them to be effective at what we do; we also need them to be easy and engaging for both student and teacher.  Which is why I am putting out this series of blog posts.  Every few days I am going to highlight a resource on our shared Early Literacy Interventions website to give you an idea of what's in it and how it can work.  Here's our website: is a website created in California to support literacy for beginning and emergent readers by providing high quality digital literature, classroom resources, and vocabulary support for students in grades K-5.  Everything on is free to use and re-use.

   One of my favorite features of is the ability to find and save PDF versions of texts that are Common Core aligned.  Most genres are represented on the site, along with lesson plans and support materials for digital texts.
   As someone who loves read-alouds as part of a reading curriculum, offers free Read-Aloud Favorites searchable by grade, topic, and format.
The Read-Aloud Favorites allow you to search for a rich digital text to use in classrooms. is still adding titles and resources to their site, so check back often.

Don't forget to bookmark our Reading Interventions Symbaloo page for easy reference.  If you have another website you'd like me to add, feel free to email or leave a comment below.
