These 15 creative resources (not worksheets!) will help new or struggling readers of all ages learn to sound out words with confidence. The "Reading With Color" technique is very easy to use by parents or tutors. It involves tracing vowels in one of five colors as clues for short vowels, long vowels, silent letters, and more. With this method, kids will know which sound(s) to say. For example, the "ea" in each of these words will be traced differently according to the vowel sound(s): teach, great, bread, cereal, create, and early. The PREVIEW provides an overview of the resources and when to use them, and shows selected pages from the Teacher's Guide.
TEACHERS' COMMENTS ON READING WITH COLOR RESOURCES
Great multi-sensory activities.
I've used colors before but there were too many colors! This approach of using only five colors, with a color for schwa, seems less confusing.
Best resource ever!
Great technique for my struggling readers!
Very useful for me as an ESL/ELL/ESOL teacher.
Wonderful ideas and just what I was looking for......thank you!
Using colors is much easier than I expected it to be!

ABOUT READING WITH COLOR
This technique was invented by Elinor Boeke (1933-2016), a reading specialist who refined her method during many years of successfully tutoring struggling readers. Elinor also gave workshops to teach parents to use this method.
