Resource Description

Improve success with phonics by focusing on 24 thematic words each week. The words in this resource are from the popular book, "There Is a Bird on Your Head" by Mo Willems. Five colors provide hints for short, long, silent, schwa, and unusual vowels. Try the activities with and without color hints. You'll see that color hints help kids blend phonemes faster. Kids will read the book, from your library or bookstore, with confidence! For a bundle of related resources using this technique, see the Phonics Intervention Bundle.

"Reading With Color" was invented by Elinor Boeke (1933-2016), a reading specialist who refined her method during many years of tutoring struggling readers. Elinor also gave workshops to teach parents how to use this method. Elinor's daughter Evangeline, who has professional publishing experience, has created an easy-to-understand Teacher's Guide and related resources including word lists, word cards, games, and activities. If you purchase a resource and you're not completely satisfied, send a message to Evangeline and she will send a refund or substitute other resources from this shop or from her K-8 Math Sense shop.
