Tumblebooks provided mostly online storybooks of interest to K-3 but there are some chapter books and graphic novels some grade 4-7 students may find interesting. Storybooks are read to the students and partially animated. Some of the chapter books can be read aloud and the student can follow along. Some chapter books and the graphic novels are simply for reading online.

Tumblebooks seems to work best with Chrome on a computer but may work well enough on other devices, give it a try. Mobile devices will look and function differently than computers.

Hello world!

Welcome, Edmonds!

My intention for this blog, for now, is to use it primarily as a repository for information, links and various resources. I will also post activities and opportunities for Edmonds students.
