Teacher Reads

Teacher Reads

Kids love to read books over and over and sometimes a parent or sibling isn’t available. The videos in this series, recorded by Durham Public School teachers and other local educators, aims to help kids absorb books as much as they want, even if they can’t read by themselves. These videos can be also used for ESL students who want extra time and practice with the English language.


The collection contains 28 videos, two of which are bilingual books in both Spanish and English. Below is a YouTube playlist of all these videos.  Students will also be able to check out the books and DVDs from their school.
