Judith Morais's curator insight, March 27, 3:13 AM

There's a good range of books here that, unlike some ebooks I've used, fill up the whole screen so that we can use it for whole class work easily. Unfortunately, the videos don't have the words from the books. There is a link to purchase the books though, and that may be worth it, considering how good the videos are.

Judith Morais's curator insight, April 15, 11:56 PM
You'll find a good range of online texts to read here, categorised under categories such as science, social studies etc. Each part of the text can be read aloud. Definitely something I could use for the early literacy classes that I teach. There are two levels of elementary texts available.
