I thought I would share some of the online reading resources that I like and have found useful. For all of these, they ask that you create a login account.

  • wegivebooks.org  These are free books online, and the selection changes.
  • spellingcity.com  This has a free component where you can enter spelling words, play games, and practice. There is also a paid component, but you can just use the free portion.
  • readingeggs.com (and readingeggspress.com is the next level)  This is a paid program, but you can do a two week trial to see if your child/student likes it. (If you are a teacher, it is a four week trial). This is a phonics based program, and the one I would recommend for students with specific learning disabilities/struggling with reading.
  • readinga-z.com  This is a paid program with a one week free trial. It has leveled books, comprehension quizzes, worksheets, and also reading passages that allow you to determine a student’s fluency. There are a lot of good nonfiction stories that I like to use.
  • raz-kids.com  This is also a paid program with many of the same stories as readinga-z, but it has more of a game theme with points students can earn, and students can record themselves as they read the stories (something most students love to do). There is a two week free trial.

This is not a paid endorsement!

It is interesting, some students really like one program over the other, so look for the best fit for your child/students.

I haven’t included links, so just copy and paste addresses in your browser if you are interested. Also, if you have any other reading programs you like, please share!
