Virtual Learning Options with TeachingBooks

To Our Community,

In an effort to support you during this unprecedented time, TeachingBooks wants to perpetuate relevant literacy connections for everyone in your community. We have developed a Book & Reading Engagement Kit: Home Edition that you may freely use. We also have highlighted a variety of virtual learning activities for you, your students, and parents as they support children’s learning at home.

For example, take a look at our Complete Book Readings Collection and explore over 1000 choices of complete books and poems you can listen to from anywhere. Simply narrow your selection by grade level, genre, subject area and more to find titles that work for you. Listen to or watch the book from any device–wherever you are. 

You can also explore our Ready-to-Use Activities which are available for all grade levels. With these activities, students can practice skills, demonstrate understanding, and prompt discussions. Remember that these activities can be shared, filled out, and then submitted in Google Classroom.

Let your students learn from authors as well… 

For more ideas check out our newest list of Virtual Learning Ideas for elementary, intermediate and secondary teaching. Use them all, or cut and paste them on your websites and newsletters. 

We hope that your virtual time will be brief and that these resources can help it be productive. We look forward to hearing about your success in the journey. Share out your ideas in the comments below so everyone can benefit from this new endeavor.  And, shout out to us on social media @TeachingBooks.

    Thank you for letting us use this resource for free as we, (about to retire) teachers, try to navigate uncharted territory. Your titles and authors are at least familiar ground when learning new teaching methods! I am on a huge learning curve trying to adjust to online teaching with Google Classroom. I am looking forward to turning students on to favorite books, poems, and stories using your resource. Be safe, stay healthy!

    Thank you. These resources look like they will be very helpful, especially the listen to, anywhere, component. Though I have well-honed read aloud expression, my primary students need to hear other voices.

    Hi Kip, Thanks for your comment! We’re glad you’re excited to share with your students. It is fun to bring in other voices, isn’t it?
