What it is: MeeGenius is an outstanding site I just learned about from @NMHS_Principal on Twitter.   MeeGenius is an online library of picture books that kids can read independently or as a read along.  Books can be personalized with students names, just answer a few quick questions and the book is rewritten for you.  Each book comes with audio playback and word highlighting, perfect for beginning or struggling readers to read along.   

How to integrate MeeGenius into the classroom: MeeGenius is a nice web library of picture books that can digitally expand your classroom library.  Students will love the way they can personalize books using themselves and friends as characters in the book.  Personalized books can be saved and shared with friends.  Set up MeeGenius on classroom computers as a listening and reading center.  Students can practice their reading, vocabulary, and fluency.

Begin the school year by making personalized books that contain your students names in them.  Read them throughout the first week as a class on the interactive whiteboard or projector connected computer.

Older students can use MeeGenius, too!  If you have students who are learning a foreign language, have them listen to or read a story and translate it into the language they are learning.

Tips: MeeGenius is also available as an app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
