Tumblebooks Premium Library

TumblebooksOne of the Teachers’ Resource Center goals this year is to support interactive teaching through the provision of new interactive resources and professional development offerings. Another is to support students’ love 
of reading and literacy development while further 
engaging families in these rewarding journeys. The acquisition this fall of a subscription to Tumblebooks Premium Library for learners with K – 6 reading 
abilities supports both goals!

But What Are Tumblebooks?

Grade, lexile and Accelerated Reader levels are noted for most titles. Clicking on a reading level leads users to other books at the same level. Users can use the pause button to stop the story at any time in order to practice story prediction, interpret pictures, discuss new vocabulary words, empathize with a character, discuss possible consequences of actions, encourage problem solving, or provide historical, geographical,or other perspectives; however, there is much moreto Tumblebooks Premium Library than justTumblebooks!
