The HSA has purchased an online book subscription for Beaumont students this summer. TumbleBookCloud is a collection of K-8 videos and chapter books in categories which include: Ebooks, Read-Alongs, Graphic Novels, Videos (from National Geographic!), and Audio Books. Their books feature adjustable text sizes, full narration, and a read-along function which highlights text as it is read. These features make the site a great tool for reluctant readers and ESL students Plus, all of these options can be switched to manual so readers can read at their own pace. The Username is beaumontbear and the Password is beaumontbear.
After logging onto the Beaumont account look for the TBC Jr. button at the bottom of the page to switch between levels.
Note: Flash Plug-in TumbleBooks and Tumble Quizzes are created in Flash animation and require the Flash plug-in to view and hear the animation. The great majority of computers and operating systems are already preloaded with Flash. If you are unable to view the books you can download the Flash plug-in for free at www.macromedia.com.
