Our district has recently been given a trial subscription to the online reading site, Tumblebooks. All the South Slope primary classes have visited the computer lab to learn how to access this site. We have also sent home notices to let families know how to access Tumblebooks at home.
Tumblebooks has many benefits for readers, including English Language Learners. Listening to reading is one of the best ways for students to develop comprehension, fluency and, most importantly, experience the joy of reading.
Please see me in the library if you have any questions or comments.
