It's been a few weeks since I listened to the A.T.Tipscast and just got around to listening to the end of season 2. It shared a great tip for everybody. The tip was for Nightlight Stories. Nightlight Stories are a collaboration between Chris (A.T.Tipscast) and his wife. They are all original stories, and some have a recurring character. Once you listen to the store (by download through iTunes) you can head to the blog. On the blog they have vocabulary and comprehension questions that can be used with each story.
I know I immediately started looking at the ways this could be used in the classroom. As an auditory listening activity with questions to follow. It could even be used as homework for a student. Send home the questions, and tell the parents where to find the audio to do with them. The possibilities are endless.
Make sure you check out the A.T.Tipscast podcast, and also Nightlight Stories. Both are available on iTunes and through their website.
