readeo

Today is completely rainy and cold.  A good day to read!! My first grader and I have been reading online books (no audio) on reado. Today we clicked through the pages of Mighty Max. Reado is place  to meet for book chats, read online picture books and create your own shelves of favorite online reads. Readeo features online picture books by publishing companies including Candlewick Press (one of my fav), Blue Apple Books, Chronicle Books and Simon and Schuster.

I kept asking myself how this would grow and help readers.  At home, this site would be fabulous for reading in sync and online (same book) with distant family or friends.  At school, it would allow classrooms to share a book with pen pals (maybe they will come up with an educator option?) It would also be an option for logging in books on the nightly reading log.  I personally liked being able to read through new titles by the great publishers readeo is partnered with and know if I would like them in my own classroom.

If you are interested in checking it out you can use the code "goreadeo" for a free month of services if you are interested in setting up an account.

Animoto looks like great fun. I can't wait to see what your kids will do with it.
