Tumblebooks Reading Resource

 Thanks to our Kindergarten teachers Mrs. Dory, Mrs. Boyd, and Mrs. Andrew, receiving a grant, they purchased the TumbleBooks program.  TumbleBooks are stories that are read to children via the TumbleBook library online.  The site can be used both at school and at home for all ages.  The following information tells you how to access it at home.

NOTE:  If your child would like to use the story as an AR test, they must click on "Read To" on AR.
