We have collected and organized YouTube videos of various CKLA Read-Alouds by grade level that you can access here.

The collection does not (yet!) include a read-aloud of every CKLA K-3 Listening and Learning selection.  So, we are also asking for your help in building this library.

Check out which read-alouds are missing at each grade level for a particular domain. If you are able to record read-alouds for what is missing from our collection, please contact us.

Together, we can do this!

    Wondering what happened to the 3rd grade read alouds, they seem to have been deleted from folders in the drive.
