I'm very excited to share these next four sites with you to help you teach an early reader!

Starfall has been around since September of 2002. Many elementary teachers, preschool teachers, child care providers, and parents use this program. Phonics are presented systematically and phonemic awareness is practiced with this free to the public online reading program.
Parent Phonics Training
Parents will find easy to follow techniques and tips to teach phonics through video and flash animation. Specific topics can be repeated or skipped. You're going to learn a lot about phonics with this training. This free phonics training is provided by Reading Horizons. I've personally used two of their online reading programs. Currently I use a Reading Horizons' teaching manual with students I tutor. Reading Horizons has reading programs for 4 - 9 year olds and ages 10-adult.
The Reading Teacher has animated versions of a popular phonics series I See Sam books. There are 100 online interactive books, printable books, lessons, songs, videos, teaching tips, quizzes, and assessments. The program starts with easy books, introduces sounds, and stretches and blends sounds to help early readers.
