Technology in the Art Room: Digital Books


The other day I posted about Books In The Art Room. I've since heard of a couple additional sites that you may want to check out. Trust me, they are worth it!


Here are a few sites that have digital picture books to use in your classroom:
  • www.storylineonline.net (SAG Actors read children's books)
  • www.speakaboos.com (a colorful, interactive site for traditional read-along stories)
  • www.readtomelv.org (Las Vegas celebrities read children's books)
  • www.schooltube.com (like youtube but without the commercials. There are read alouds and picture books as little movies. Search other topics such as "Kandinsky," etc.)
  • www.pbskids.org (I like: www.pbskids.org/lions/stories) hunt around for additional online stories
  • www.nhptv.org/kn (you could get lost in this resource--there's so much!)
  • www.wegivebooks.org (you'll need to register to use this site, but it is pretty neat and there are lots of free popular books you can read online. Their selections do change, though, so make sure the book you want is still available before you present your lesson!)
(Thank you to Program Associate & Technology Guru, Tiffany Dube at Plymouth State University and Selina Smith at Classroom Magic for their help with this list).
