Spooky Stories Just in Time for Halloween
Download a free trial of Tales2Go to play scary and silly Halloween stories for kids in the classroom and at home
Putting a modern twist on a proven, decades-old reading resource, Tales2Go is reinventing the delivery of audio books. Tales2Go can be used in a variety of ways, depending on the educational setting, age of student, listening individually or in groups, or in this case, to bring classic holiday stories to life. Whether you are looking for the must read, heart-pounder, Edgar Allen Poe’s The Tell Tale Heart, or something for a younger listener such as H.G. Wells’ The Inexperienced Ghost, Tales2Go is a great way to put the fright into night this Halloween!
“Kids love listening to stories,” says William Weil, CEO of Tales2Go. He continues, “What most people do not realize is that listening to audio books and stories is also a proven pathway to getting students excited about and skilled at reading. Specifically, listening exposes students to vocabulary and builds critical listening, fluency and comprehension skills, at all reading levels. This is why audio books have been used in classrooms for decades. What better way to both entertain and educate kids than with a fun and/or scary story for Halloween.”

For readers at all levels, and particularly those who struggle with reading skills or visual learning, Tales2Go supplements their education with thousands of titles. By example, many current subscribers use Tales2Go in concert with printed text, bringing both oral and decoding skills together. Recent studies have shown that student achievement increased measurably when a listening component was added to instruction, whether it is assigned reading, or something fun for Halloween!
Tales2Go offers a free, 30-day trial as well as monthly and annual subscription plans, including bulk sales for schools. For more information, visit http://www.tales2go.com
