As a teacher at a small school in Morocco, English books are not extremely prevalent, so I am always looking for alternative ways to expose my students to books. Technology helps me fill this gap for my children. One site I love to use is WeGiveBooks. There are over 190 books on the WeGiveBooks website that you can read completely FREE. With a projector, this makes a great shared reading activity or even a read aloud. The books are a combination of classics (like the Snowy Day) and contemporary (like Good Night I-Pad), fiction and non-fiction. There are even books in Spanish.
However, the best part of this website is that it is also a way to increase your children’s global awareness, because for every book you read, you have the opportunity to “give a book”. For more information on this site – check out my review at Raki’s Rad Resources.
