Hey teachers! By now we are well into October and it is safe to say that we are all teaching. We might be teaching differently but we are all doing our best to ensure that our students are engaged and enjoying their time with us. I know that can be really hard (especially for the online learners). I wanted to talk about something that I use in the classroom though that will make a huge difference in your life: VOOKS!
I love VOOKS so much that I applied to be an ambassador and I am so excited to share them with you!

WHY USE VOOKS?
As a teacher in a pandemic I know we are all looking for digital options when it comes to lessons. Books can be hard to find on YouTube because we never know what could pop up. I was always so worried that during a read aloud something would hop on screen that wasn’t relevant. When I heard about Vooks I was really excited. I went online and found out that they are a safe space for read alouds. They have so many books that are streaming and they have something for everyone!
MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT VOOKS
There are a lot of reasons I love Vooks. Here are a few of them:
- There are new books being added all of the time!
- They offer seasonal real alouds for students.
- It animates the stories for the students. They add songs, music, sounds and more to the stories to keep students engaged.
- Vooks brings back fun to stories!
- There are NO ads and it is kid friendly. Every story is one that is appropriate.
- Vooks doesn’t change the content of the children’s books. What is written is what is read.
