How I Use It
I use this website for a fun read aloud, from someone different. Students often lose interest if I am reading or get tired of hearing it only from me. This is a fun change for the students. They get to see a celebrity read the story, and they often change their voices and expressions to meet that of the character, so they are very engaged. The students love have the story on the board and hear the characters change with the reader. The actors do a wonderful job bringing the story to life. It also play music in the background and shows the pictures in a way I never could. The students will sit and listen to every word.
My Take
I really like this website. The kids love the stories and the change is nice in atmosphere. They get very excited and really enjoy the books.They do have some wonderful books to chose from. They have a lot of the biggest books that students love. It would be nice if they would add some new books. That is my biggest issue with the site.
