It’s Wednesday, May 9, 2018, and time for Language Arts at ClickSchooling!

 

Recommended Website:

BookBox

(www.bookbox.com/)

Age Range: 4-12 (Grades PreK-6, with parental supervision)

 

This website offers a selection of culturally diverse children’s fairy tales and stories that you can listen to for FREE in a variety of languages!

In addition, you can download activities, and play interactive puzzles and games based on the stories.

The free audio stories in MP3 format are an adjunct (and a teaser) to the commercial sale of digital books at the site, but you do not have to purchase anything to enjoy the free PDFs, MP3s, games and activities. The digital books synchronize text, audio, and visual media to create an educational and entertaining reading experience for children. The digital books are based on proven methods of Same Language Subtitling (SLS) that not only enhance children’s basic literacy, but also facilitate their proficiency in foreign languages.

When you get to the site you’ll see a menu of stories. Select a story and choose the language you prefer (some stories come in more languages than others). Wait for the story to download and then listen to it online. If you want, you can download the free PDF so that you can read along. Then, once you’ve listened to the story, you can do the free activities that are themed around it. (Note: Not all of the stories have accompanying activities.)

This is a terrific resource for encouraging the development of language arts and foreign language skills that will engage the young and young at heart.
