The Story Home

What it is: The Story Home is a collection of classic and original children’s audio stories.  Every other week a new story is added by storyteller Alan.  All audio stories are FREE!!  The stories can be listened to right from The Story Home website or by subscribing to The Story Home on iTunes. How to integrate The Story Home into the classroom: Students will love listening to audio stories on The Story Home.  Set up a listening center in your classroom where students can listen to stories.  As they listen to stories, students can practice comprehension strategies like visualization.  If you have an iPod program at your school, load up the iPods with stories that students can listen to from home.  Find stories that correspond with your classroom curriculum and introduce new concepts with an audio story.  Use The Story Home to teach students Story Telling strategies. Tips: Introduce parents to The Story Home so they can use it at home with their children.  I learned about The Story Home from multiple tweets on Twitter.  If you aren’t a part of the Twitter education community yet, sign up today! Leave a comment and tell us how you are using The Story Home in your classroom.

I am SO excited for this weekend.  It is the Reform Symposium Conference!!!  Seriously, I feel a little bit giddy.  Like a child on Christmas morning.  As an adult, RSCON is one of the things that can bring back the same feelings of anticipation and eagerness.  So much learning is about to happen this weekend!  Best of all, it is INSPIRED learning.  What could be better than surrounding yourself with a weekend packed full of inspiration, learning, hope, edu-friends and encouragement? Nothing, that’s what.

In case you’ve been out of the loop in the world of social media lately, this is BIG!  You will not want to miss this FREE worldwide virtual conference.  It doesn’t matter where in the world you are, what you are wearing, how disastrous (or epic) your week was, because RSCON4 is available to everyone.  Please look at the schedule (conveniently made available in your preferred timezone) and plan to join us for as much of the conference as you can.  I’m overjoyed that I get to be a part of this incredible conference again.  Although I’ve been the very WORST organizer, I’m truly so honored to be a part of something so important.

I’ll be presenting on Sunday with @michellek107 and @nancybabbitt, we will share a little bit of the “secret” sauce that makes Anastasis so awesome. Drop in and join the conversation.  Better yet: drop in to several sessions and join the conversation! Looking forward to learning with all of you!
