I have taught and tutored for 10 years after retiring from 30 years of curriculum experience as an editor for major publishers. Now I'm writing independently. Please try out my resources! (Also see math materials at my K-8 Math Sense store on TpT.)
For beginning reading, I like to use thematic word lists. I help students mark the vowels with colors to indicate long, short, silent, and so on. Kid learn to blend phonemes quickly and confidently.

My mother, Elinor Boeke (1933-2016), was a reading tutor for many years and invented the original version of Reading With Color. Students of all ages and abilities were very successful in learning to read. The original version has been improved to use fewer colors and to accommodate colorblind students. In Mom's honor, I am continuing to expand and update materials to help children who struggle with early reading. Please try the freebies!
