February 15, 2017 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Here are a couple of fabulous freebies. You may may want to check ’em out and add them to your go-to lists – especially for parents.

DK Find Out! Personal comment >visually  attractive and friendly, includes videos, quizzes  and fun facts on a variety of broad subject categories.  Other resources are recommended to flesh out the information.

Storyline online A selection of picture books read by Hollywood personalities (again a good recommendation for parents), for example:

  • Harry the Dirty Dog is read by Betty White
  • Brave Irene is read by Al Gore

Remember that the TDSB Virtual Library is stuffed full of reading and  resources for K-12 students. Start with Quick Finds and discover ebooks, encyclopedias and databases, streamed videos. Your TL can provide password information to the subscription resources.
