Fall Back Into Your Routine

Tales2Go Newsletter September 2014

There's Always Time for Audio Books!

This fall, challenge yourselves and your school to have an established routine for reading instruction. Including listening to reading as part of your routine will boost your student's reading comprehension, vocabulary and overall word knowledge.


  • E-mail us to setup a Professional Development for you and your staff to understand the research behind listening and how audio books will help close the word gap.
  • Make sure teachers and students have sufficient devices and earphones to make the most out of your Tales2Go subscription.
