I have to share a great FREE resource that I use in my classroom! It is called Storyline Online and it is WONDERFUL.
It is brought to us by the Screen Actors Guild Foundation and it is an online video streaming of SAG actors reading popular children's stories.
Each book read includes activities and lesson plans to go along with it.
As my school year is winding down, it is a great way to share a story.
I don't watch a lot of TV so I had a hard time figuring out who some of the actors are but they make each story exciting for young readers. Be sure to check out Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge, it is a favorite among the first graders in Room 174
Here are some of the books available:
Harry the Dirty Dog
To Be A Drum
Sebastian's Roller Skates
Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge
No Mirrors in My Nana's House (another favorite)
