Reading With Colors

I was cruising around on Google the other day and I found a relic from my past that I had been looking for for a long time. Words in Color was a reading program that our school district in Moffat County, Colorado used for a years and years to teach reading to the elementary school children. A few months or so ago, I was talking to my sister and another childhood friend about this wacky program of posters and phonics and colorized letters and how we all felt it gave us good reading and comprehension skills. And apparently it does. There are case studies of the program and it is stil quite popular in England, France and Japan as part of an early reading education program. And for just $55.00 I can get a set of the posters, so perhaps a purchase and some wall decorating is in my future.
