Struggling Readers + Pinterest = GREAT Solutions!

By now, you probably know that I'm all about three important things---1) struggling readers 2) helpful resources and 3) reading solutions. What better place could there be than this blog then to combine all three for our readers? I decided to add a fourth ingredient to the mix for this week's article, however, just to mix it up a little bit.

If you've been paying any attention to trends on the internet, you're probably aware that Pinterest has almost taken over as the major social networking site. The Midwest is currently the part of the country where “pinners” are most active, pinning (or posting) links and resources in categories for all their followers to see and share.

There have been many Pinterest pinners who have shared resources for challenged readers over the past several months. This week, I thought to combine this popular trend with resources for struggling readers. The result? I hope this will help my blog visitors find even more solutions for the struggling readers in their lives---all in one place!

Here are just a few of the links to Pinterest boards for challenged readers (we included boards with 5 or more pins or resources):

1. From Michelle Anthony's board, Struggling Readers:

2. From Paula Lee’s board, Help for Struggling Readers:

3. From Amy Wall’s board, Struggling Readers:

4. From this author’s board, Let’s Help Struggling Readers:

Happy “pinning”---and reading, everyone!

Dear Nicholle,

Many thanks for your great email here.  It actually made my day!  It is gratifying to know that when I post resources there are great people out there who visit, evaluate, and utilize them.  Thank you! 

Yes, I am a frequent visitor to Michelle Anthony's board, as well!  She has some great offerings there for the readers you described.

Will continue to post articles here and resources on Pinterest to help as many as possible who work daily with challenged readers of all ages.

Thank you again, Nicholle, for the good words!

Thank you for posting this. I have found a ton of great resources! I am now a follower of your board. I really appreciate the b/d reversal resources on Michelle Anthony's board, Struggling Readers, as well, because this continues to be a problem for many of my kiddos.
