Literactive.com is a great site for beginning readers. You must first create an account. It is free. On the site there are activities that focus on pre-reading development such as visual discrimination, memory, matching, and first letter sounds. There are also various reading levels, books and activities to go with each level. My son who is 3 can do some of the beginner activities. It also works with beginning comprehension and sequencing. Each level has a list of grammar components and what the text will focus on. There is also a section with worksheets you can download and print off to work with after. I think it is a great site for K - 2 and even 3. I have only looked briefly at the site but it was recommend by a K - 2 teachers who has been teaching for 25 + years.
