LISTEN UP! We Will Improve Your Students Test Scores!

SPLOONARD....

Sploonard is a word we made up

Just because you can decode a word doesn't mean you're reading. Now you know what it feels like to be a student with a limited vocabulary.

You have to have heard words to know words. 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.

Tales2Go is a Netflix for kids' audio books designed to make it easier to add a listening component to reading instruction, in the classroom and at home.
