Scholastic BookFlix is an online literacy resource that pairs classic video storybooks from Weston Woods with related nonfiction from Children’s Press and other trusted Scholastic imprints. This engaging resource for children in grades pre-K through 3 helps early readers develop and practice essential reading skills and introduce them to a world of knowledge and exploration.
Each BookFlix unit includes streaming video of a classic children’s story. With the Read Along option, each word is highlighted as the story is read, with key vocabulary words highlighted in yellow. In addition, each BookFlix title is paired with a related nonfiction text. There are interactive Puzzlers (educational games) which reinforce key vocabulary from the nonfiction text, or that ask readers to differentiate between fact and fiction.
Each BookFlix unit also includes a Meet The Author profile, age-appropriate Web links related to the story, and lesson plans for educators to use BookFlix with beginning readers. A number of titles are also available in Spanish.
BookFlix can be accessed for free with your Vermilion Parish library card. Use the library link if you are inside the library, and the external link if you are outside the library!
