Information About The Reading Street Supplementary Materials
While I was a first grade teacher I used the Scott Foresman Reading Street program. I modified some of my previously developed materials so that they introduced phonics patterns in the same sequence taught in this reading series. There are phonics pattern worksheets, decoding sheets, word wall materials, and tests. I shared these materials with the other first grade teachers in our county, who were all using the Reading Street Program. The materials I put together were designed to use as a supplement to the Reading Street curriculum.
At this point in time, the Scott Foresman Reading Street program is no longer available. However, there may be some teachers or parents who still have used copies of the first grade level books. If you do, then these supplement materials may be useful for you.
All of these materials can be reached by clicking the Reading Street tab on the menu bar at the top of this page. If you can't see the menu, click HERE to go to the Reading Street page.
What About Grade Levels Other Than First Grade?
I'm sometimes asked If I have created supplementary Reading Street materials for other grades. I have not, and I don't know of any sites with similar materials at other grade levels. However, the Sound City Reading phonics materials, which are separate from the Reading Street materials, cover a span from kindergarten through second or third grade. They would be useful with students of any age who don't have a good understanding of the phonetic nature of our language. Please take a look at them. Beginning readers and older students who need extra practice with word recognition, comprehension, and spelling would benefit from these materials.
