This wonderful site has a collection of original stories read by actors and actresses. This is an excellent way to show children that reading is valued by folks in all walks of life! An example is "Dad, Are You the Tooth Fairy" read by Jason Alexander. Many of the story titles are parodies of famous tales. Viewers can see the actor holding the book and turning the pages as he hears and sees the story being read. An accompanying Teacher's Guide with activities and an activity guide complete the offerings. The activities are terrific comprehension checkers and build solid reading strategies. The videos are available in two different programs: YouTube and SchoolTube.
tag(s): reading comprehension (132), reading lists (81), reading strategies (87)
In the ClassroomMake the stories a center or use a projector for the whole class to watch the video. Then share the link on your teacher web page for students to repeat it over and over at home. Make sure your spakers are turned up! Depending on the age of your students, once or twice a month extend student learning by having them participate in a Flip, reviewed here, discussion with their peers. Ask them to explain which was their favorite book and why, then have them listen to and comment on their classmates' impressions.
