Fantastic Site for Books

I have found another amazing site that will help kids fall in love with reading. It is called Speakaboo. You can do all kinds of things with this site:

  • It has books you can listen to and watch the illustrations.
  • Your students can record reading a book and send the recording through email to a parent or grandparent.
  • They provide teachers’ guides and lessons to go with the books.
  • There are games.
  • They provide books read by celebrities.

    1. I love this site. I am hoping the rocording feature will be going very soon. I would like to record We Wish you a Merry Christmas with my class singing (of course-not me) ans e-mail it to parents for a fun surprise. Thank you for all of the great resources. Your blog is always full of great ideas and I am learning new ways to use the technology in my lessons. Thanks again. Becky Smotherman

    Ever since studying with Katie Wood Ray at the @TCRWP summer institute in 1994, I have been obsessed with teaching with mentor texts. Now I've written a book about this topic, coming out next month! You can preorder it at

    We kicked off our 3rd Grade PBL with a Firefighter, EMT, Nurse, and Police Officer visit and brainstormed how we want to show them appreciation for everything they do for us. The kids are so excited for the expo! We love our first responders!🚑🚔🚒🚨@HumbleISD_DWE @drlorielliott

    It takes a big heart to teach little minds. Thank you teachers for everything you do to help us grow up smarter, stronger, and kinder. #WorldTeachersDay
