12 Days Before Christmas Break (#3) - Novel Effect App


Back in February I wrote a post about an interactive read aloud app. It has quickly become my favorite things to pull up and use with students (I use it with a Bluetooth speaker I have for the classroom).

This holiday season I am suggesting that you try the FREE app Novel Effect to add some fun into your holiday read alouds.

The app plays sound effects as you read certain books, which they have listed in their app. The app operates on voice recognition so as you hit keyword markers certain sound effects and music plays to enhance the story.

Holiday books on their list includes: Twas' the Night Before Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and many more. You can use the app with either a paper or digital copy of the book. Check out their list of holiday read alouds and stock up from the library and see how your students respond.
