Hello Goodbye Dog by Maria Gianferrari is the latest Chickadee nominee we are reading at South School. It introduces students to the concept of therapy dogs and encourages them to read aloud to their pets. "Therapy dogs can be used in classrooms and libraries to foster a love of reading. Therapy dogs provide a "pawsitive" association with reading, and especially with reading aloud, since child readers are neither judged on nor corrected for mispronunciation."

Students can now access Brain Pop and Brain Pop Jr in their Clever accounts. Teachers also have the ability to assign videos to their classes along with other activities. The teacher dashboard allows you to see student scores on quizzes. You can look for lesson plans that relate to Brain Pop videos in Brain Pop Educators, LINK. Brain Pop videos can be searched by standard, grade level, and subject. If you need help doing any of the above or would like support the first time you roll this out in the classroom, please schedule a time to meet with me.
Duolingo is a free foreign language app for all ages. Teachers can create accounts, set up classrooms, and add students. Use this as an option in your Language Arts classroom for students who have completed their work or as a rotation during center time. Lessons are audio driven so headphones are needed. The teacher dashboard will allow you to create assignments and monitor student progress. Please let me know if you need help with this or if you would like to explore further. LINK
