Reading the Easy Way is a 12 Week Printable Curriculum for Preschool children to learn to read sight words fluently. The program is based on the preKindergarten Dolch sight word list. It combines worksheets, games, and early reader books to reinforce the sight words that are introduced each week.
I used this curriculum with my five year old son, Logan. He is beginning to read independently. I wanted something easy to use this summer to prepare him for Kindergarten next year. Children would not need to be reading independently to use the curriculum. It would work well for children who know their letters and are beginning to show an interest in reading. I think Logan will also be ready for Reading the Easy way 2, which is a Kindergarten program. I wanted to spend some of the summer reviewing what he already knows, and then I am excited to move him to Reading the Easy Way 2. I was also excited to find out the author just released a first grade curriculum as well.

What I thought:I love that this curriculum is easy to use. Everything is done for me. Lesson plans are easy to glance over quickly and prepare. I would recommend printing the entire curriculum at once and organizing the activities by week in a binder, as they are organized by activity in the curriculum. I also liked the amount of variety in the activities. The variety helps children to work with flexibility on the sight words.This helps children transfer their knowledge of the words in isolation as they read and write sight words in real text. Reading the Easy Way is a great reading program to teach sight words. For a complete reading curriculum, you might want to add phonics activities, writing activities, and comprehension activities. The creator of the curriculum, Beth Gordon, includes a resource page with links to activities. The links on the resource page are free resources that will help you fill out the curriculum.
