Childhood. The old-fashioned way.
This morning, I was researching instructional technology and soon found myself hunting for images of vintage SRA reading cards. Why did I end up there?
What a wonderful flashback!
I have been thinking about the fun I had using the SRA card system back in the Assumption School in Peekskill, New York back in the 1970s. My mother was a reading teacher, so we would often wait in her reading resource room after work until she was done for the day. I used that time to make my way through the color coded cards from the SRA box and was always so excited to move up through the colors to the advanced dark purples, even though I agree with Brave Girl Copy that there is something special about those Aqua colored SRA cards.

McGraw Hill is still publishing the SRA; but in my mind, nothing can compare to the retro look and feel of the SRA of the 1970s.
