The ERS Library & Multimedia Center offers its FREE CheckThisOut! service to the teachers & staff of our contracting schools. Sign up to receive CheckThisOut! kits (random or customized) and once a month our ERS Library Team will select 4 - 10 items especially for you then deliver them to your campus. We'll include extras like Teaching Books flyers with links to lesson plans & author interviews, and links to extra content in the ERS Portal. Look the materials over, share them with your students and, if you choose, rate/review them in our Follett Destiny online catalog. 

**Your 
CheckThisOut! participation does not carry over from school year to school year. If you would like to enroll again, please complete the sign up form.**

Let TumbleBooks Provide Online Read-Alongs to Your Students



Remember the magic of Reading Rainbow?  Levar Burton's semi-animated books came to life as they were read aloud.  Tumblebooks and Tumble Readables can provide your students that same magical reading experience.  Simply login to ERSPortal, and choose either resource.  Search for a book by keyword or even by California standard, then click to play.

Sentences are highlighted as they are read aloud, and books can be paused or 'rewound' -- great features for English Learners.  Tumblebooks and Tumble Readables are compatible with mobile devices, and lesson plans are included for many of these great animated ebooks.
