New illustrated story book app for language teachers
One More Story brings illustrated children’s books to life to help English language learners with pronunciation, intonation, vocabulary and fluency – and of course reading skills – and is now available to all itslearning users through the itslearning App Library.
One More Story is an online library of over 60 illustrated children’s books set to music and read aloud by professional story-tellers – and is an ideal teaching aid for English language teachers or teachers of early learners.
Developed by Sesame Street producer Carl Teitelbaum and his late sister Rona Roth, it encourages a love of reading, as well as helping students learn new words, pronunciation and fluency. Books range from ‘first books’ with three word sentences to books with more mature content and more sophisticated vocabulary.
Reading, pronunciation and much more
As well as listening to the stories, your students can also mute the soundtrack so they can read alone, hear passages repeated until they’ve mastered the pronunciation and play listening games. The teachers also have access to a report card, where they can see which books each student has read, as well as detailed reports on students game results.
