I wanted to share with you a website I found out about when I was at the IRA conference in Chicago two years ago. It is called We Give Books. It is totally FREE! You sign up for an account. Then you choose a charity. Each time you read a book online, the Penguin Group and the Pearson Foundation give a book to the charity that you chose. This is a wonderful way to introduce students to give to charity by having them choose which charity to give books to.
Since it is Back-to-School time they have several back-to-school books for you to share with your students. There is Llama,Llama Misses Mama and The Night Before First Grade. What a great way to share a book with your students in a different format! I have a big computer screen in my classroom that I use for sharing these books with my students.
Please check out the website, We Give Books.
Let me know how you like it.
