I'm really itching to hit the submit button on this year's major Rainbow Resource order. I'm so, so, so, so excited about the choices I've made. Here are the "reading-specific" choices on my list:
Explode the Code Book 3
Explode the Code Book 4
Put Me in the Zoo
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
McGuffey’s First Eclectic Reader
The Bravest Dog Ever
If you're familiar with Sonlight, you'll recognize a few titles from their 1st Grade Reader package. We already own most of the other books.
There are tons of read-alouds on my list (as well as several Toobs to go along with the science and history topics), several Rightstart Math items, character study mini-books and more... I just wanted to share my enthusiasm over the actual "Learning to Read" items.
