Tools for Learning
Tales2Go is a 21st Century literacy tool designed to complement reading instruction. Since oral language precedes written language, students are naturally and effectively able to build vocabulary by listening, which is why it's so important to read to kids. Parents and educators can work together to surround students with sophisticated vocabulary with Tales2Go. Students with larger vocabularies tend to better comprehend what they read and teachers know reading is a function of both decoding and comprehending words.
Tales2Go can be used in a variety of ways, depending on the educational setting or age of the student, ranging from just listening—individually or in groups—to listening paired with the print versions of their favorite titles. Teachers working towards achieving goals outlined in the Common Core Standards in any area or grade level will appreciate the suggested Tales2Go classroom activities sorted by literacy skill for simple customization to meet the specific needs of students. And—we haven't forgotten—kids love listening to stories.
