Playaways are books that come with an MP3 player as well. The playaways offer students the joy of reading an authentic text while also listening to someone read it aloud. In this way, students can increase their volcabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
Due to the fact that playaways are a 'hot' item, given how often they are checked out to students, we ask that they are returned in a timely manner. When they are checked out to students, the media center staff must verify that students have the signed parental permission card. Playaways are distributed to students in gallon-sized, Ziploc bags with the book and MP3 player bound using a rubberband. Please maintain those items so that the playaway can be returned in the same manner. Remember, too, that only one playaway can be checked out at a time.
