Do you love all of the fun and educational Storybots songs that are on YouTube? Me too! Now, you and your students can listen to all of your favorite songs without needing to go on YouTube. Storybots Classroom is a website that is free for Preschool, TK, and Kindergarten teachers. Along with songs, it provides students with math games and stories. There are even “Starring You” videos and books that put your students directly into fun. Just invite parents to upload their child’s photo onto the website (or, do it yourself, like I did) and create a Storybots character with their adorable faces. Students can then listen to songs or stories that is individualized to that student. Plus, it’s really cute.
Storybots Classroom is perfect for the whole class, small groups or individual students. You can create small groups within the website and assign specific groups or individual students math games that meet their needs. You can also adjust the level of difficulty to differentiate instruction between groups. All of videos and games are engaging and developmentally appropriate for young learners.
My favorite feature about Storybots Classroom is the learning videos. They are organized by categories, which is great for young learners. I love how students can enjoy their favorite songs and learn new ones without getting distracted on YouTube. Join in the fun with Storybots Classroom!
