Wednesday Weekly Website – Roy The Zebra


Roy The Zebra


Review: Roy the Zebra is an excellent interactive site for emerging readers. The site comprises mainly of a guided story section and interactive reading games section. The guided stories have before reading and after reading discussion sheets and related literacy worksheets. The interactive games section includes games on word level and sentence level to enhance skills such as phonics, rhyming words, alphabetical ordering, punctuation and comprehension etc. There is also a paid option in which you can install the reading software along with hundred of printable resources like worksheets, flashcards, wall displays etc. I haven’t tried their paid option as I don’t think my kids need that but you can try it for free for 5 days. The free options are worth a look and since the children this age need a lot of variation and variety in their reading, keeping this site in your literacy toolbox will help, insha Allaah. There is no music on the site which is a plus.


Suitable for ages: 7-9 (according to the website but my kids were able to enjoy it since 4 years of age and got bored long before 9 years of age. So better give it a try with little ones as well.)
