Post activities, information, and materials for teaching students to read in Chinese here.

Children's Chinese Reader - 12 lessons that include dialogues, pattern practice, and opportunities to hear each sentence read by a native speaker (in Windows Media Player). Later lessons include links to simple cultural readings, character practice, etc. You'll want to open a new tab each time you click on something new because the site is a bit clunky to navigate otherwise - chericem1 chericem1
