Tales2Go is a Netflix‐like service that streams thousands of name-brand audio book titles from leading publishers to desktops, laptops and mobile devices in the classroom and beyond. The company has innovated on both the delivery and business model of distributing audio books to schools, early childhood programs and parents, giving users instant, unlimited and simultaneous access to its catalog. Literacy experts have long understood that children need to be good listeners in order to become good readers, which is why the Common Core State Standards elevates listening to a skill equivalent to reading, writing and speaking. Standards aside, adding a listening component to reading instruction has been shown to raise student achievement and scores. Teachers who blend a combination of independent reading, guided reading, listening to fluent reading and phonics work have seen success in their classrooms. They also see their students' general excitement about reading, or a favorite character and series take hold. There's something about sparking a child's imagination thru listening (i.e. the mental pictures) that provides a catalyst for growth and learning. Tales2Go offers piloting opportunities as well as monthly and annual subscription plans, including bulk pricing for schools. More information at www.tales2go.com.
