A very interesting read from +Shannon Dipple  I've heard about this but I've never experimented with color and reading. Have you?
 
Can Color Help You Be A Better Reader?  

This post has amazed me with how many shares it got around FB.  There is a huge link between the use of color and how well someone can comprehend what they read.  

I personally found this to be true this year with one of my students.  You can listen to the difference yourself between his labored reading without the use of a color overlay and just a few minutes later with it  (hint:  there is one specific color that outperforms the rest).   #readingcomprehension   #readingdisabilities  
Link between color and reading comprehension difficulties. You can directly impact your students growth in reading by using colors!

This is a brilliant way to practice blends and digraphs! #literacycenters #wordwork
 
Beginner Reading Activity
We made our own letter rocks with letter blends for building words, decodable reading, and sight word practice.  Now this was fun!

We are big block fans and I can't wait to try this idea from +Jamie Reimer !!
 
Got a child that loves blocks? This is a great exercise for them! It helps them problem solve, much like a puzzle does, but with blocks!

My kids informed me today that summer is only a few weeks away! Whew! Wasn't it just September?

Ah! Bunnies!
Maybe I'm just tired but I can't stop laughing at Vogueing Bunny.
Now that the start of spring is seeming like a meteorological reality and not just a date on the calendar, my mind has turned to budding flowers, chirping birds, and fluffy bunnies. This list celebrates the latter, including one or two childhood classics.
