I LOVE reading and enjoy reading to my students during class visits, but there have been a few cases where reading aloud hasn't worked so well in my favor. These instances include losing my voice, not feeling my best or just not feeling reading the same story for the 10th time in a week. I've found an amazing alternative solution...Storyline Online! Which is an online book website where The Screen Actors Guild Foundation records well-known actors reading
children’s books and makes graphically dynamic videos so that children
around the world can be read to with just the click of a Storyline
Online video book image. I also think that this is awesome because we'll be able to have more discussion and lesson activity time during our class visits and there's a good chance that I wouldn't have nearly as many interruptions during story time (we all have a class or two that provides lots of "commentary" .
I have a strong feeling that this will be used quite a bit in my class visits and small groups. Thank you Storyline Online, this website is a school counselor's dream come true!
