Evening everyone,

It’s been a while since I last blogged on our website – Sorry for this, I have been very busy as I’m sure you guys have as well.

As Chris mentioned in his blog earlier this month, at Kids’ Corner Education we have been very busy to get our website ready for the new school year.

On this note, this brings me on to my next update! Over the September period we will be working with a number of Voice Over actors to finish recording our History podcasts. This will cover a number of topics, such as World War I, World War II, Victorian Britain, Roman’s, The Vikings and The Tudors.

By September the amount of podcasts for kids available will be phenomenal. If everything goes according to plan we will have over 250 podcasts, with 420+ minutes of audio covering 130+ subject topics.

Chris has also finished editing our French Podcasts, which means we now have 2 languages available to our listeners, so please feel free to sign up and listen to these as much as you want, at http://members.kidscornereducation.com/.

 

We will speak with you guys soon!

Benefits of Audio for Children:

Children go through a number of years when their reading ability is lower than their intellectual capacity. That’s when it’s particularly important to read aloud to your children and expose them to children’s audio.

  1. Great for second-language learners, learning-disabled students, and struggling readers or non-readers.
  2. Improving listening and comprehension skills.
  3. Increasing vocabulary.
  4. Learning the proper pronunciation of words.
  5. Learn to ‘see’ a story by using imagination instead of illustrations.
  6. Engaging a child’s interest in a way a parent or teacher reading aloud may not.
  7. Provides an enjoyable classroom/family activity.
  8. Teaches critical listening.
  9. Improves concentration.
  10. Helps to understand the subject content, thinking critically about the content, using imagination and making connections.
  11. Provides a read out loud model.

Podcasts and audiobooks can be a welcome addition to every classroom. Many students are avid readers while other are struggling to become readers and still others have given up hope. Audio podcasts have something to offer all of them.
