All the links included in this page are to professional organizations specializing in early reading and getting off to a good start, so naturally they’re recommended – especially to students for whom English is a second language.

Alphabet Soup

These guys continue to update their site, even though the design looks like it’s still 1998. But don’t let that deceive you, just look at their recently-penned back to school 2009 portal. It’s brimming with cool stuff, like back to school games, books and poems. Sure, the idea is to prepare teachers for the first day of class, buy we always told you, there’s nothing like a bit of the inside track.
