Our Top 3 Free Reading Apps!

It is always exciting as a teacher to receive free materials! We spend so much of our own hard earned money that when we get something for free we celebrate and share it with others! So, we are going to share a few of our favorite free apps for reading books on your iPod/iPad!!!
  • Stories 
    • 'New book a day' program to help you build your library. If you do not want to wait you are able to purchase books.
    • You can choose to have the books read to you or you can read the book yourself. When the story is read to you the words light up in a different color allowing students to easily follow along. 
    • Background music is played as well as sound effects that fit the story line
