Recently, it was brought to my attention that many of the publishers have changed their ‘read-along’ rules to allow educators to read aloud online from their books during ‘shelter in place’ as long as the videos are posted as unlisted on YouTube. My son’s school has been doing an amazing job providing lots of content (morning announcements, read-alongs, creativity challenges) presented by staff and students for the school population to watch while they can’t be in school. Most of the read-alongs have been picture books for younger kids so I decided to contribute by embarking on a read-along of a chapter book for older students. Spencer and I are currently reading Tumble and Blue by Cassie Beasley and loving it so I decided to head back to the beginning and record a one chapter read-along every day to share with the school. Our school principal is posting my read-alongs to the school’s Facebook page every day at 2 pm but I’ve heard that some folks are having trouble finding the ‘episodes’ in order. For that reason, I decided to create a page here, on my blog, where you can see all of the episodes, chronologically, as they are published! If you or your children are interested in hearing Tumble and Blue (and really…it’s a GREAT read!) please start with Chapter 1 below and join us! I’ll try to keep this page updated daily with the new links!
