Thank you to the Pine Glen PTO for graciously purchasing the streaming audiobook service called Tales2Go! In LTC classes, students have been learning how to use Tales2Go and exploring the many audiobooks.
You can set up Tales2Go on your home or personal devices so the students can listen to audiobooks all summer long (and for the whole 2014-2015 school year!). It works on desktops, laptops, iOS devices, as well as Android devices.
Use the instructional flyer below to help you get started. Scroll down in the flyer to find the downloading instructions.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 781-221-7798 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t let the Summer Slide happen!
Research shows that students who continue to read for fun over the summer don’t lose the skills they gained in school before summer break. But it’s not always easy to get to a library or a bookstore over the summer when you are vacationing or playing at the beach!
With the extremely generous help of the Pine Glen PTO, Pine Glen students have thousands of ebooks available to them all summer long through our subscription to BrainHive, eBooks On Demand!
Fourth and Fifth grade students have learned how to access BrainHive on their iPads but you can also use the Android app or the web version.
Accounts for 2nd and 3rd graders are coming soon!
To find out more about how to borrow books on BrainHive over the summer, see the flyer below.
Thank You Pine Glen PTO!

Burlington Cable Access Television came to the Pine Glen LTC last week to talk with Mrs. D’Elia and Mr. Callahan about how we teach students about digital citizenship. See the embedded video below for last week’s episode of BCAT News. The story about Digital Citizenship starts at 2:53.
NECN came to Pine Glen last week to do a story on the PARCC and how we’re preparing our students for it. The segment features interviews with 5th grade teacher Ms. Marcus, 5th grader David, and Commissioner Mitchell Chester who was filmed in the LTC! “Students say they enjoy learning when technology is involved.”
