You Oughta Know: Read to Me FREE

I'm linking up with Jasmine, over at Buzzing with Mrs. McClain, for 
Here's something I think EVERY teacher should know about.

Have you heard of Read to Me?
(Click here or image to visit website)

I, randomly, came across this great website while browsing Pinterest one evening. I wasn't really sure what to expect when I clicked on the Pin, but boy was I pleased when I did. 

The Clark County Education Association Community Foundation in Las Vegas has built and maintains a FREE online youth reading program that can be accessed by ANYONE!

The website presents fun (and often popular) picture books in
a read-aloud format. 

Stories are read by Las Vegas community members (including it's mayor) and even some famous faces. 

You can easily browse the website for books and find lesson plans to
go along with each story!

Friends, this is a great website for literacy centers (Daily 5 Listen to Reading) and a wonderful resource to pass along to families!

  8. What a cool resources. I love the read alouds by the Screen Actors Guild but they don't have nearly as many titles. Thanks for sharing.
