I have been thinking a lot about technology and reading lately. The first thing that I would share is a few Websites that are awesome.

1. Starfall Reading — This site, created by the people who created BlueMountain cards, is free and really excellent. They sell some reading materials, so there are some adds, but it is very student centered.

2. Read-Write-Think — This site is funded by NCTE, MarcoPolo and the International Reading Association. It is a collection of some of the best lessons and also useful tools for teachers. There is so much here that is worth looking over and using!

3. Reading Lady — This is an incredible site for information about all types of reading programs. It also has a section with tools for teachers to use, a section with reader’s theater scripts and much more.
