Kids' Barn - Print Out and Play 

Another neat resource on Oxford Owl are the Print Out and Play activity sheets. These free activity sheets have three levels of difficulty and supplement popular children's books. Extended activities help parents continue the conversation about books with their children and provide an easy way to make reading fun. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/reading-site/kids-barn/print-and-play​

                              

 

 

Expert Help - Phonics Made Easy 

Among the many issues a child may be encountering when reading, one issue may be phonics. Phonics can be challenging for parents that were not taught to read with phonics. This Expert Help section provides videos, articles, and tips for helping students with phonics. One especially useful tool is the "Say the Sounds" generator. When teaching phonics it is crucial that the correct sounds are taught, and this tool can help provide the means to do so with confidence.  https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/reading-owl/phonics-made-easy/​
