Note: We suggest that you encourage students to access websites and videos online when it is possible. MP4s of videos are available for students who have no internet access at home or for teachers with poor internet access in school. MP3 podcasts of student stories and video transcripts are also available. These podcasts encourage students to practice reading independently and work on their fluency.
