Computer Based Reading Center

Here’s an easy computer center.  It uses a great website called WeGiveBooks.  This website is full of great books students can read (no read-to feature). We Give Books Charitable Organization - Free Books for Your Classroom Let students choose the books they want to read and record them on this simple “Independent Reading Sheet” (which you can grab FREE from Google Docs), and voila, easy little computer center.  The books on the site are great - a combination of classics (like the Snowy Day) and contemporary (like Good Night I-Pad), Independent Reading Center Sheet Freefiction and non-fiction.  There are even books in Spanish.
Also, when students are done reading their book, they can click the “Give a Book” button and a book will be donated to kids in need.  So, it’s also a great wayWe Give Books Charitable Organization - Free Books for Your Classroom to build global awareness in your students.  (WeGiveBooks is run by Penguin Group and Pearson Foundation.  It is part of their non-profit division.)
