Here’s some of the best comic book curriculum options we’ve used:
When I started teaching my little to read, there was an innate ability but a lack of motivation. After many months of trying different options, I stumbled upon a free trial of Reading Eggs. The little was enthralled by this innovative Australian app and progressed quickly through the levels. Once we were reading, it was time to apply that knowledge to real books but again there was a lack of interest. Enter: graphic novels! The first was the graphically adapted version of A Wrinkle In Time. After reading the book in two days, the journey to find the graphic novel of every book we could think of began. That was two years ago and the story still remains the same. So, this year when we started to choose our curriculums, I knew graphic novel or comic book based options were a must! Here’s some of the best comic book curriculum options we’ve used:
