Find a quiet space…. Pull up a cushion or bean bag… settle in. Let’s begin.

The following resources are some ideas about how to create an environment designed to foster the love of reading and literature.

AUDIO BOOKS & INTERACTIVE BOOKS ON THE IPAD

The iPad is a versatile tool. We can use it to consume books and create books.

AUDIO BOOKS ON THE IPAD

See my DIIGO weblinks to Audio Books  resources (not all of these are for children).

Access  audio books through online subscriptions (and some with free access).

IN THE JS LIBRARY

AUDIO BOOKS

Locate the AUDIO BOOK Collection (labelled as ‘Audio Book’).

When you visit the library you will find the AUDIO BOOK Collection with CD’s for you to listen to and if you wish to borrow.

  • Borrow a Portable CD player and headphones (in library use)
  • Select your book on CD and enjoy.

Additionally, last year we purchased the GUIDED CD’s resource. These are also available for teachers to use with classes.
