The Linton Academy blog has just made available some tools they are using in their homeschool.  These are based on Hooked on Phonics. If you are looking for information on learning to read with homeschooling check out their blog.  The Linton Academy currently has made available R-Controlled Vowel Printables that they created and are using.

I decided to start with some basic r-controlled vowels, as these come up fairly frequently in his everyday reading. These printables are simply words to color (or trace) with the vowel and the r underlined to help him remember the rule.

 They also include on this page a link to some additional sites with materials that can be used for r-controlled activities.  With our youngest we aren’t at this stage yet (and our oldest are way past it).  – but this is another tool that I am bookmarking for later.
