Choosing the Right Type of Easy Reader
Let me first begin my saying that choosing the right type of easy reader can be a challenge! As children begin to progress in their reading, easy readers become an important aspect to the reading journey. Easy readers are great for children who are just learning how to read because the text is simple and the stories are short. Easy readers also allow children to practice there newly learned phonics skills and sight word recognition.
There are so many different types of easy readers on the market today and a huge variety to choose from. Here are some easy reader sets that we have found useful, especially while working through Ready2Read Level 1.
