There is a new series of vocabulary books. Each book is based on a theme and includes 18-20 words and illustration. At the moment there are 40 books in this series. Have a theme in mind for a vocabulary book? Let us know!
If you’re here, you may have already noticed! We have just launched our new website. We hope you enjoy it! When you select the RESOURCES link in the main menu and scroll down, you will be presented with the newest resources first – a quick way to see what has been added recently.
We have added about 28 new books for young car enthusiasts! Simply enter voitures or autos into the search box to check them out. They are in levels Ananas to Hibou.
We have added about a dozen handouts in each of levels Canard and Dauphin.
We have added several running records to each level from Gâteau through to Rose des vents. There are now several running records available for each of the 18 levels. Merci!
We have made improvements to the way our videos are presented. When members login to the video site they will see the new layout. Buttons at the bottom of the page are now much larger and better spaced, making it easy for students to use on small screens such as iPads. There are more thumbnails on the page, making videos easier to find and navigating from page to page minimal. When members hover over a video thumbnail with the cursor, the video title will appear as well. We will soon make available reading logs / tracking lists for each level. These changes were made following teacher suggestions and so we would like to thank those teachers for taking the time to offer us feedback. We welcome all comments and suggestions for improving our site and resources!
After choosing a level, students are presented with the video thumbnails. Large buttons at the bottom allow students to easily select another page.
We have added more running records to levels Ananas –>Fourmi. There are at least 5 per level now. There are running records for the first 12 levels. They can be found right next to the book download buttons.
More running records will be added to the remaining levels very soon. Merci!
We have uploaded new handouts to accompany 21 of the books in level J. These include comprehension questions and short writing tasks. Once logged in you can find links to these next to the book download links.
More to come! Merci!
We have just added 45 new books on the topic of pollution. There is something in every reading level. Our newest books are at the top of each level / book list.
Plastic pollution is a growing concern and we hope that these books will spark further discussion. Students can see where plastic garbage is found and how these plastics are affecting birds and other animals. Oil spills are also the focus of several books, as is recycling.
Included are a couple lower level books on deforestation – we will be expanding on this topic soon.
There’s a new collection of books coming in the next 30 days as well. Please check back soon!
Our video books now have a visual cue on screen for students to match what they hear with the exact word on the screen.
In lower levels there is a coloured circle around the spoken word. In upper levels there is a cursor that follows the spoken words.
We have new SAMPLES where you can explore 18 of our books in both PDF and VIDEO format.
With a classroom license, teachers access both PDF and video resources. Their students can access the video books from home!
