Reading Resources and Websites
This site includes a variety of FREE online books that are organized by reading level. Create an account for your child and monitor their progress. (If you have trouble understanding French you can select English to help you set up the account). This site is great for extra support reading. You can recommend books for your child to read by placing them in the "suitcase". Your child can choose to read along, have it read to them and they can even record themselves reading. At the end of every story, there are a few comprehension questions to check their understanding.
