We’re heading to NAEYC! We’re thrilled to announce that Speakaboos, the award-winning digital reading motivation platform for early childhood literacy, will exhibit at the NAEYC Conference and Expo (National Association for the Education of Young Children) for the first time in Orlando, FL from November 18 – 21, 2015. Sunshine State, here we come – and we can’t wait to meet everyone there!
Attendees are invited to meet with Speakaboos team members at booth #271 and experience the premier reading motivation platform featuring over 175 interactive educational stories that support literacy skills.
Why NAEYC and Why Now…
The Speakaboos team has dedicated years developing a platform that motivates children of all reading levels, helping them become self-confident, independent readers through a library categorized by children’s interests and featuring engaging stories that leverage interactive technology and active learning. Through our pedagogy, based on the research of our Chief Content Officer Dr. Alice Wilder, one of the world’s leading experts on literacy through media, children read an average of 55 stories per month, and spend an average of 22 minutes each session on Speakaboos. We’ve also been working to align with some of the biggest distributors to bring the multi-platform service to schools and homes.
Now widely available, we’re ready to present Speakaboos to educators at premier gatherings such as NAEYC and motivate students across the country to read – and read more! Speakaboos is thrilled to meet and share its educational platform with NAEYC educators to support their impactful work developing students’ literacy skills and creating lifelong readers.
Engaging Stories, Engaging Booth…
When we say our stories are engaging, we mean it, and we’re bringing that magic to life in our booth. In addition to personalized demonstrations of the platform, Speakaboos will host an interactive #NAEYCStorytime photo studio – selfies welcomed and encouraged! Attendees are invited to snap a photo with character props and famous phrases from classic storybooks featured in our library and share it on social media for a chance to win an iPad for their classroom. Multiple one-year Speakaboos subscription prizes are also up for grabs. Be sure to visit the booth for details and all the joy a good story can bring.
Exclusive Platform Trial for NAEYC Attendees…
Speakaboos wants everyone to walk away a winner and we’ll be offering an exclusive code at NAEYC for educators who visit our booth providing unlimited access to the platform free for 3 months. It’s a tremendous resource for the classroom that attendees won’t want to miss. We’ve found that students who read Speakaboos in school are more likely to read at home, too. Our programs are affordable for schools – ask us about our different options for educators. Visitors to the booth can also pick up Speakaboos swag while supplies last.
We look forward to meeting all of the passionate educators at NAEYC and exploring how Speakaboos can support literacy in classrooms across the country. You can follow the Speakaboos hashtag #NAEYCStorytime to see all the fun and characters from the conference. See you in Orlando!
