Engage Students in Current Events
Designed for the iPad and iPhone by Press4Kids, the News-O-Matic, Daily Reading for Kids app provides images, videos, and maps to accompany five daily news stories, in English and Spanish, at three reading levels. The app also includes a bilingual Read to Me feature.
Sing Along with Scientists
Space School Musical, a multimedia Discovery Program from NASA, takes students on a trip through the solar system in a “hip-hopera” that uses song and dance to introduce the planets, moons, comets, asteroids, and even some rockin’ scientists and engineers—present and past—who present facts about the galaxy.
Champion Children’s Books
Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes—wherever young readers and books connect. Children’s Book Week is administered by Every Child a Reader, a 501(c)(3) literacy organization dedicated to instilling a lifelong love of reading in children.
