Free Reading Passage: Ed's Riddles and Mel's Poems

  Ed’s Riddles and Mel’s Poems The following reading passages are based upon the characters in “The Black Silk Path” by Heather Doolittle which is available through several Amazon Marketplaces. “The Black Silk Path” follows the skill progression of the Level 3 Barton Reading & Spelling System scope and sequence. The following reading passages use all the skills introduced in Barton Reading & Spelling System Level 3. For more information on which skills are used, visit the “The Black Silk Path” page at     PDF Version   Narrator: This reading will help you get to know Ed and Mel a bit better.

If you have not yet met Ed and Mel, the book “The Black Silk Path” will explain who they are and how they came to be under the spell of R.L. Nox. To catch you up a bit, the spell is an attempt to foil Ed and Mel’s efforts to find their kidnapped parents. T

Barton's Stand-Alone Books

  I am honored to have the opportunity to write stories that follow the Barton Reading & Spelling System scope and sequence. Choices can be helpful as we encourage students to practice their reading and to find the kind of books they enjoy. I wanted to share a resource that can help you find which Barton Stand-Alone books will be a good match for your student(s) (for levels 3 and 4.) This comes from a fellow Barton tutor and parent's blog, "Lindy's Homeschool." Barton Reading & Spelling Stand-Alone Book Review I was excited to see a short summary for each of the Stand-Alone stories as well as Lindy's notes. Thanks Lindy!
