The "Reading With Color" technique involves tracing vowels in one of five colors as clues for short vowels, long vowels, silent letters, and more. It is VERY easy to use by parents or tutors, and can be applied to words from ANY stories. These 15 creative resources will help new or struggling readers of all ages learn to sound out words with confidence. And after using the thematic word sets in this bundle, you'll be able to apply this technique to other sets of words from favorite stories. Throw away boring worksheets, and teach phonics the easy way!
Why this method works: 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.

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!
