Your local public library can be an excellent resource. Not only can children borrow books at no charge (unless the items are returned late), but they can also borrow non-fiction, educational shows on DVD. And, for emerging readers, there are "read-alongs" (books accompanied by audio CDs). For reluctant readers, there are also books and activities created just for them. For example, in my local library, there is a program called "Paws for Reading," which is a play on words (pause and paws). This activity allows young reluctant readers to practice reading to therapy and rescue dogs in the children's activity room at our library. It's a great hit with the kids! I absolutely love my library. I have discovered so many excellent books and movies for teaching my subjects that I always include them, along with free printable worksheets, in my lesson plans for my tutoring sessions. I call them my "teaching" books, and they make my job so much easier and more enjoyable.
