Technology Tuesday: FREE online Arthur stories

It's time for another TECHY TUESDAY post! YAY! I'm a technology guru and love learning different ways to integrate it into my classroom.
 
Raise your hand if your kids love Arthur stories? Mine do! A few weeks ago, our story in our readers was "Arthur Writes a Story" and they were hooked from there! We read "Arthur's Valentine" for Valentine's Day..."Arthur Meets the President" for President's Day and so many more.
 
I came across this website (thank you pinterest) that has SEVERAL of the Arthur stories online for FREE! It even reads it to them and everything! I love it! All the these stories are AR books to so it helps my kids earn their goals. When I need a few minutes to fill, I pull up the site, let the kids pick a story, press play and relax work,work,work for a few minutes!
 
It also has some great resources for fairy tales, rhyming and so much more!

 Also, Educating to the Core is having a giveaway for a $10 TPT gift certificate! Head on over to her blog and show her some love! You have until March 4th to enter!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

  1. Hi, Marcy! I got the Pinterest floater button from my blog designer Honey Bunch Blog Designs. I am sure if you contact them, they will do it for $10. For me, it is easier to have them do it than to do it myself. Good luck! I am sorry I am no help:/ LOL I am your newest follower;)
