Free Audiobook Resources

Mary Burkey, a teacher, librarian, and audiobook addictvisits my Google reader a few times a week with great audiobook suggestions.  This week she shares a free audiobook download from AudioGo. No email address, or survey, just a free book.

She also led me to the Tales2Go ipod app which is free to educators until June 30th. WOW What a resource, They have lots of popular titles, as well as great folktale resources for the NYS ELA test.

Book Apps

At work our principal offered us chances to join Professional Learning Communities. It is a great chance for  teachers to work together reading, researching and developing sound resources for the district.  My group is working on Response to Intervention and our recent implementation of the Daily 5

This article from School Library Journal however, is a great resource for what another PLC group is researching.  Do you ever wonder what to look for in a book application?  This article gives some excellent advice.

Read a Children's Book, NOW!

I know I haven't posted in a while.  I keep meaning to, but keep getting distracted with crafting (hehe), and reading my new nook.  I did read this post, and felt I had to share it.  I feel a little guilty reading children's literature all the time, but its sooo good.  Take a monent to read this blog, and then a children's book. 

I suggest:

Have Fun!!
