Reading Resources On Pinterest

learn to readOne of my greatest passions in life is to help children learn to read and develop a love of books. Now that I am out of the classroom and online one way I do that is to help other parents support their own children’s learning. Digging to find activities, ideas for struggling readers ,and just the right book has never been easier. I have found incredible reading resources via Pinterest and want to share them with you. These 6 boards have consistently useful pins for all things early literacy. Check them out !

 

1.Reading & Writing Readiness by us … but really it’s a community board made up of great bloggers and wonderful reading and writing ideas.

2.Reading Activities by The Educator’s Spin On It and check out their blog here.

3.Little Book Lovers by Zina Harrington and check out her blog here.

4.Struggling Readers by This Reading Mama and check out her blog here.

    Great list of reading resources here—ALL in ONE place! Much appreciate your post and have pinned AND bookmarked for future reference!

    If we may, we would like to tell you about one more Pinterest board—> Help for Struggling Readers, created by an experienced teacher who is also a curriculum specialist and inventor of tools for challenged readers of all ages: http://pinterest.com/brennajn2000/help-for-struggling-readers/ .

    Hope you will agree that the pins there would be helpful to many struggling readers!

    Thank you for your good post and list! It will help so many!

    Interesting that these are all bloggers – no libraries or early childhood organizations to speak of. These bloggers have great stuff too – but librarians and early childhood educators have dedicated their lives to literacy – so maybe some shout outs to the many AWESOME library Pin boards would be good too.

    I have my master’s degree in early childhood librarianship and here are three of the Early Literacy supporting Pinterest accounts to which I contribute:

    I’d bet that you and most of your readers might also find that you local libraries have pin boards worth checking out as well!

    All the best!

      Thank you for the links – I am always looking to extend the scope for sure.

      If you have had a chance to browse these boards you will see that there are links to libraries and resources way beyond their own blogs. Also these bloggers aren’t making it up as they go along. All included are educators and while some are no longer in the classroom one look at their blogs and you will see they are very much dedicated to literacy.

    Thanks Ally for including my Pinterest Board! As an early childhood teacher and now writer I spend much of my personal time searching for the best resources for parents to use with their children at home to promote literacy. Also sharing fun and easy ways for teachers to incorporate hands on fun with reading in the classroom. Such an honor to be listed among this group!

    Many thanks for providing these excellent reading resources!

    You and your readers might also be interested in the following blog for CHALLENGED readers of ALL ages: http://helpforstrugglingreaders.blogspot.com/ . There you will discover many resources (some FREE) to help children, teens and adults who struggle to read (with ADHD, dyslexia, autism, low vision, stroke recovery or TBI issues and other conditions that can impact reading success.)

    Thank you again for a great post!

    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to
    send you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing.

    Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
