Reading aloud to children has been shown to improve reading, writing and communication skills, logical thinking and concentration, and general academic aptitude, as well as inspire a lifelong love of reading. Teachers use Storyline Online in their classrooms, and doctors and nurses play Storyline Online in children’s hospitals.

Storyline Online is available 24 hours a day for children, parents, caregivers and educators worldwide. Each book includes supplemental curriculum developed by a credentialed elementary educator, aiming to strengthen comprehension and verbal and written skills for English-language learners.

Storyline Online is a program of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation. The Foundation is a nonprofit organization that relies entirely on gifts, grants and donations to fund Storyline Online and produce all of its videos.

You can help the SAG-AFTRA Foundation create more Storyline Online videos and new content, so that we can read to millions more children every month.

Amazing Amazing Amazing!

So its been a couple of days now since i have been using storyline online but there is one thing about the schooltube thing here are the problems:
Schooltube has no captions(there is a head phone jack stuck in my ipad)

The schooltube sponser at the bottom keeps bring me to the schooltube website(please put it some where else)

I dont use schooltube but some of the schooltube sponsered videos are there and i like those books.

Thank you sag-aftra foundation for making the app!

Excellent narrations to go along with the visuals of the book.

I’m really hoping for an Apple TV version soon, so I going to tie up my computer whenever I’m showing it to the kids at school on the big screen.
