Playing with PlayPhrase - Anthony Teacher.com When I first learned of PlayPhrase several years ago, I was quite excited about its pedagogic potential, even though I didn’t know exactly what that potential was.

It allows you to hear how these words and phrases sound in all their screamed or whispered, connected, unstressed, authentic glory. It makes for great listening practice, especially for bottom-up skills and short sentence parsing.

YouTube "Read Aloud" Book Videos for Kids Over the years I have read my four children many, many books, most often at bedtime, and with as many funny voices for the characters as I could provide. As much as I enjoyed the time for family bonding and for helping the kids settle down for the night, research has shown that having stories read to children has many educational benefits as well. Reading stories out loud to children: Provides them with a model of fluent reading.Allows them to consume content above their reading level (since they can listen at a higher level than they can read).Shows them the connection between the written word and its meaning.Teaches them the narrative structure of a story or book.Helps develop a love of stories, books, and reading that can carry on into the rest of their lives.

Students can use Google to quickly find millions of websites matching their search request, but are they able to determine which sites actually contain information that is accurate, unbiased, up to date, and written by someone with authority? One step in helping our students identify quality information online is to introduce them to the exact opposite… websites that pretend to be truthful but actually are full of intentionally incorrect information.
