    Oxford Primary books – some real gems here!

    I am an International school teacher working in a private school.

    For many years I have wondered why there are so many free children’s books online, but no free reading scheme. I decided it was time I fixed this. I have collected together around 2000 public domain children books and ordered them into both year groups and then also into monthly reading groups. The idea being a group of children can follow the scheme throughout the year.

    The big idea is that children can read these books on a Kindle, e-book reader or ipad at home. I have made sure all the books I offer are both free and come originally from well respected publishers.

    The website is called http://www.free-guided-reading.com

    The colour scheme follows that of the rainbow.

    Red – Year 1 books
    Orange – Year 2 books
    Yellow – Year 3 books
    Green – Year 4 books
    Blue – Year 5 books
    Indigo – Year 6 books
    Violet – Year 7 books

    I am now really keen for everyone to use this site, to reignite a love to reading. Make reading more than just another phonics scheme (incidentally, the site also has a really great, free, complete phonics link too!).

    Thank you for reading this.
