Like many of you I send home a Scholastic book order. (POINTS!!!!) I send home the grade level one and sometimes I send home "Click" the technology one with games and techy things to order. I also encourage my parents to order online. I mean, they get free book coupons, I get free book coupons, and I don't have to deal with those messy checks.
Now Scholastic has an app (and a download for the computer) to get books directly to your device! Best of all teacher pals....download now and get a total of 10 free books. The books do vary in levels, but c'mon...if it's free it's for me. (haha)
I have the app on my iPad but I'm going to ask our tech lady at work to put it on my student computers so that when I buy Storia books they can read them on the computer. This would be awesome if you have classroom iPads.
- 10 free books for teachers
- 5 free books for parents
- Available as an app or computer download
- Some books have an interactive feature (indicated by a lightning bolt)
- audio (story read to the student)
- questions about story or picture
- my book below had the option for an alternate ending
- Teachers still get points when parents download ebooks (and you don't have to send home a flyer for them to buy them, they can go online to buy more)
- Free app
- Need a book last minute...can't go to the store...library doesn't have...ebook to the rescue!
- Limited (but growing) library of books
- Cannot download books from the app, must go online to download and then sync to your app (as far as I can tell, please correct me if I'm wrong.
