Barnes and Noble Studio – Story Time, Biographies, Author VisitsPosted: January 4, 2012 | |
Are you tired of reading the story during Story Time each day? Would you like to visit with an author but just can’t afford the cost? Are Biographies or Poetry your thing?
Barnes and Noble Studio offers all of the above and much, much more FREE! Ah, there is that word again, FREE fits my school budget!
The Barnes and Noble Studio web site is somewhat difficult to find. I could not find a link to the site from the Barnes and Noble homepage. I would suggest that if you are interested in using this site, make it one of your favorites.
When you click the link to Barnes and Noble Studio you will see the video page below. The were showing a video on Prohibition when I visited.
Videos can be shown full screen and loaded quickly.
If you SCROLL DOWN, you will see where you can make selections for other video categories. (Fiction, Historical, Politics, Bullying, Relationships….)
Online Storytime Videos – Read by the Author – 16 stores were featured the day I visited.
Author Interviews – 45 authors were featured the day I visited.
Biography and Memoirs – 493 featured biographies and memories
Poetry – 33 featured
If you create a Barnes and Noble’s account, you are able to save videos to a personal playlist. The playlist will save you time when you are ready to use the videos in class. Your personal playlist appears as the first selection in the categories list.
