    Reading

    In Florida we just finished our state tests.  For many students they now think that they do not have to practice.  I am going to include some very helpful websites for children to practice their reading skills with over the summer and some excellent resources for parents and teachers.


    Free Siteword Books


    Welcome!

    Hello!  I am a 4th grade teacher here in Central FL.   As budgets across the country are cut and especially here in FL are cut we have become more and more dependent on free electronic resources.  I have set up this website as a resource for other teachers and for parents who want to help their child.  The purpose of this website is to be a resource place for everyone to come for information.
