Our son is 3.5 years old and is prime for reading and writing. Montessori aside, we are a big fan of Miss Rhonda’s Readers. The First Readers are sweet stories and adorable, colorful illustrations that lure my child every time.
As a way to integrate my son’s writing into his reading, I began making Printables (with permission from Miss Rhonda herself) to go along with the books. Because I love you, I am offering these printables to you FREE. Here are the first sets of FREE PRINTABLES from Miss Rhonda’s Readers from Set One: Sniff! Sniff! Tracing, Sniff! Sniff! Letters, Pink Pig Tracing, Pink Pig Letter.
The rest will come shortly.
We’ve been doing reading & writing activities over the last six months.

Early Literacy Ideas. 5 Easy and Fun ways to encourage your Preschooler by Debs at Learn with Play at Home
I adore Miss Rhonda’s Set ONE and Set TWO but her Words Cards and Set Three, a Chapter Book, are fierce rivals for that adoration.
I encourage you to take a look at Miss Rhonda’s Readers. Miss Rhonda and her illustrators bring a freshness to First Readers unlike other early reading books I’ve encountered along my path. You will be pleasantly surprised at her work, Montessori or not.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope that we inspired you.
