You may know that Discovery Education (*United Streaming*) has a great selection of educational videos for your classroom. But, did you know that they also have an impressive collection (over 200 titles) of children’s picture books on video? (examples include Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Miss Nelson Is Back, Strega Nona, Office Buckle and Gloria and more!) Try searching “Reading Rainbow” to find over 100 more titles.

Book-it and Seussville have teamed up to do a live read-aloud story time with Tim Tebow. On February 15th, Tim Tebow will be live in a webcast reading the Dr. Seuss classic, Green Eggs and Ham. There are lots of printables to pump your students up for the big-day & our upcoming Dr. Seuss Week. Even if you’re not a Tim Tebow fan, this is a great way to draw your sports fans into books, or your book fans into sports :)
