PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

You'll love this wonderful resource that puts hundreds of clips of stories being read aloud right at your fingertips!

You are purchasing a GROWING file bundle. The current file includes more than 500 file links to online stories being read aloud by all kinds of folks--from kids to adults, and even some celebrities! There will be three more updates to this product within the year.

Links and information are nicely organized in the form of a sortable, editable table in Microsoft Word. Not only are links to read-alouds included in this table, but you will also find videos that feature authors and illustrators discussing their craft, as well as background videos to deepen understanding of a concept.

Several of the entries fall into the category of "StorySongs". These videos feature the readers' special talents of singing the text. (My personal favorite has to be the Jason Mraz-type ukulele performance of Dr. Seuss' Ten Apples Up on Top!)
Since the table is 100% editable, users may make personal notations and item additions within the document. A detailed guide explains tips for working with Word tables.

Months of work hours have been poured into the creation of this project to make it a dynamic and useful resource. The videos have been previewed and vetted by the author to ensure that students are exposed to high-quality learning experiences.

Here are some of the features that make this resource extra useful:
--Author information and clickable links provided for each title
--Synopses of stories, as well as descriptions of the video production values and styles
--Total video running time is stated for each clip
--Images of book covers embedded with each title, to assist the teacher in recognition and familiarity with the featured books
--Screenshots of actual video clips to assist in determining best and appropriate use for instruction
--Space in the table fields that allows teachers to add specific notes, comments and highlights

A ten-page Tips & Tricks guide provides information about ways to effectively use the video clips with students, as well as tutorials for easily sorting and adding entries to the 86-page (and growing) Word document.
The guide also features information about configuring YouTube for student safety. An alternative (and some believe, more kid-friendly) viewing tool to YouTube is explored and explained in the Tips & Tricks guide
The Tips & Tricks guide offers many ideas for using these video resources in the classroom and home settings.
Be sure to download the sample file to get a good idea of just how useful this document will be to you.

Currently, the first installment of this resource features entries by a myriad of authors and subjects. Holiday books are featured.

By purchasing this file in the early stage of publication, you will have opportunities to submit requests for specific types of books and supporting resources by genre, author, or other desired characteristics.
