My First Biography: Martin Luther King, Jr. – This is a great easy to read and understand book.  It is excellent book for preschoolers/kindergarten/first grade.  Great for teaching MLK Jr and his contribution to American history.

I am Martin Luther King, Jr. (Ordinary People Change the World)  -This book is more for first or second or even third and fourth grade.  It is almost “comic book like”.  Its style makes it a nice read for an older level but again is very easy to understand and explain.  My 2nd and 4th grader both enjoy this book.

Handwriting Patch Curriculum
Teach a child handwriting AND drawing using our handwriting curriculum.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound ReadingMrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.

    1. To get the freebie you need to enter your name/email into the form and then it will be auto-mailed to you. I will do this for you now. If you don’t find the freebie, check your spam folder…sometimes things go there. The freebie has a subject of “Here is your free download!” …Inside that email there is a link. That link, if you click on it, the download will either popup in a new tab or download into your download folder. Sometimes that link does not come hyperlinked. If that happens you have to copy/paste the link into a new browser tab and it will then open for you. If you have trouble with this, though, you can forward me the email/replay to the freebie email you received and I will be happy to help you with it. In either case… if you can’t find the email I am talking about -let me know and I will get it to you.

  8. Thank you for the resource.
