Reading Tip for Kids – Susan Junod

Did you know….?

If your children are learning to read you may be interested in the Oxford Owl. www.oxfordowl.co.uk. This is an on-line resource for reading books with over 250 titles to choose from. They are classified according to reading age, starting from age 3-4 and going up to age 9-10 and also by series and book type. The books are laid out on the screen exactly as the printed book and the children can click to turn the pages. The series include the reading with Biff, Chip and Kipper series which is a favourite in our house.

My two 6 year olds really enjoy reading these books. My son Thomas moans when it’s time for him to do his reading from a printed book but he actually enjoys reading on the computer and I get a ‘woopee’ when I suggest we go on the Oxford Owl so this is a real winner with him and with me!

It’s also FREE, you just need to join by providing your email address and a password, well worth having a look at.

Happy reading!
