My Magic Tree House saves that day...well not really, but I couldn't pass up its awesomeness = )
This website is interactive and really appeals to students. There are “adventures” the kids can go on, answering questions about the books and solving word puzzles. The students also get a passport that they can fill in by answering 3 to 4 questions about each of the books. Its like flying around the world very quickly = )
Students can sign up for free and save their passport stamps, or they can print out each passport stamp and put them in their own notebook. Students love this as they feel like they have been on a really cool trip.
It is such a great way to get your reluctant readers to love the power of a great book.
One of the best parts of this website is that there are teaching resources to go with each book! I also love that they have a program that donates free Magic Tree House books to low income schools in the United States. I taught at a low income school and I know the power and excitement of donations.
I know you will love what you see there and all the great fun your students will have using this in the classroom and at home.
