Literary Resources K-4
- Guys Read, www.guysread.com. This site had really well done book lists by topic!
- Boys Read, www.boysread.org. This has great parent tips for reading!
- American Library Association, http://www.ala.org/. This site is full of great links.
- Read Kiddo Read, www.readkiddoread.com. This is an awesome website! I love the layout! The books are leveled initially so it would be easy to find the right difficultly of book. I also love how each book has a parent rating as well as an educator rating.
- Getting Boys to Read, http://www.gettingboystoread.com/. This is an interesting site with a wide variety of information about boys and reading. I like that it has book suggestions along with strategies to use to help boys read (like incorporating movement).
- The Best Childrens Books, http://www.the-best-childrens-books.org/. This site was suggested by another parent as a good resource for finding books. It was created by teachers.

I hope you found the new literacy resources to be helpful. If you could please take a minute to answer a very brief survey about the literacy pages on the school website it would be very useful. I will use this information to make changes to the website, as well as a write-up for my reading practicum course requirements. If you have addition comments or questions about literacy, also feel free to email me, Nicole Hunt, firstname.lastname@example.org.
