Read a Book, Give a Book

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.  ThereWe Give Books Charitable Organization - Free Books for Your Classroom 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.
