Richard from the LORD Company recently shared the following:
LORD Company has several free downloads for coloring and writing exercises. Our most comprehensive free download is a “Simple Reading Book” series of four each. This series is based on parables and uses an approach to “Sight Word” reading using the Montessori “Three Period Lesson” to insure success for the early reader.
Assembly instructions and coaching tips are included with the download and children may color the books as they discover they can read. The books are large print and graded in difficulty to help build a reading vocabulary for the child. It would be best if these books are presented to children after a good base of phonics work (see LE-620 for 180 phonetic word cards at www.lordequip.com but for children that may be having trouble with reading for whatever reason, these books with a little coaching will help the child to be successful in reading.
