Ok, in the technical sense, Boost for Readers is not a blog...it is a website.
It's full of goodies to give a boost to young readers. Pages of word lists, decoding pages, early reader booklets to print as well as 1st grade reader booklets. There are a lot of useful things there. We use the spelling lists alot with young readers here.
Along the same lines, Word Mastery is good program for teaching reading, and it's free :o) In fact, Don Potter has an excellent collection within his Education Pages worth checking out (and printing!).
And one more favorite of mine -- Mr Donn's History Pages. Obviously, we are looking more into his American History pages right now, but he has several other worth a peek!
Ok, I'm off the computer and back to the task at hand today -- all our Jamestown pages are printed and ready to notebook-up. I need to lay out all these puzzle pieces....POE Jamestown, POE Pilgrims, indian lapbooking and notebooking units, Pilgrim lapbooking units, early 17th - 18th century life units...and figure out how to fit them all together!
