A Helpful Resource

Heard of AERO? It stands for “Alternative Educational Resources Ontario”. I received, on loan, for free, 9 books on CD and download. Students will use the digital book, along with the hard copy, to complete age appropriate book reports, etc. and hopefully cultivate a love of books! I used two last year and they were such a hit that I am really excited about my growing digital library!

I think people underestimate the benefits of digital books. Books experienced this way not only develop a love of books but also increase vocabulary, build comprehension skills, increase empathy for different characters and help the listener understand story structure.
