Free Reading is literally a free reading program for students who are learning to read, specifically children in grades K-3rd. This is not an online, interactive program for the student to do alone. Instead, it is is a teacher-driven program full of hands-on activities and detailed lesson plans. The program runs 40 weeks, 5 days per week, with one 30-minute lesson each day.
Here is a description of Free Reading, from the site:
FreeReading is a high-quality, open-source, free reading intervention program addressing literacy development for grades K-3. Schools and teachers everywhere can use the complete, research-based 40-week program for K-1 students, or use the library of lessons to supplement existing curricula in phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing. The site is also filled with free, downloadable supplemental materials including flashcards, graphical organizers, illustrated readers, decodable texts, audio files, videos and more.
Free Reading follows Florida state standards.
