If you have an interactive white board, computers or a tablet for your classroom, here are some great interactive time games for practice.
Over the last several weeks I've had the opportunity to try out a wonderful digital library app called FarFaria. This amazing app is a digital library with over 800 books. 5 new books are added every
week so you'll never run out of great content for your students to read. You can head over here to check out the app for yourself.
I have 2 iPads in my classroom and each day my students use them during reading and math rotations. One of the favorite iPad activities is "Listen to Reading" and FarFaria is an easy fit for this activity.
Students can explore the
different FarFaria worlds to find different books to read. These include Mt. Make Believe, Preschool
Playground, Adventure Island, and others. Each world has different stories. You can also choose books for students to
read based on their reading level.
Students have the option to either read the story to themselves or have
it read to them which is a wonderful way to differentiate since we all
know that we have a wide variety of reading abilities in our classrooms.
You can also save your favorite books to
My Favorites and there is a book club feature that allows you to interact with
others about the books you are reading.
This app has been a big hit with my students. I've also downloaded it on my home iPad so my grandkids can use it when they come over to visit.
The kids enjoy the fact that there are so many books to choose from. Click on the picture below to check out FarFaria for yourself!
