Freebies: DK Find Out and Storyline Online
Here are a couple of fabulous freebies. You may may want to check ’em out and add them to your go-to lists – especially for parents.
DK Find Out! Personal comment >visually attractive and friendly, includes videos, quizzes and fun facts on a variety of broad subject categories. Other resources are recommended to flesh out the information.
Storyline online A selection of picture books read by Hollywood personalities (again a good recommendation for parents), for example:
- Harry the Dirty Dog is read by Betty White
- Brave Irene is read by Al Gore
Remember that the TDSB Virtual Library is stuffed full of reading and resources for K-12 students. Start with Quick Finds and discover ebooks, encyclopedias and databases, streamed videos. Your TL can provide password information to the subscription resources.
