I work at a middle school with special education students. We practice listening skills where I read a story and ask them questions along the way to check their comprehension. I'm sick of reading things to them and would love to turn on a podcast instead. Could anyone suggest an appropriate podcast? My dream podcast would be stories or articles about one to three minutes long, no interstitial music, and no content that could be rated worse than PG. Griddlecakes Radio
is close to what I'm looking for, but the language is a bit advanced and the stories are pretty long. Also, my kids have no interest in podcasts by middle school students in other states. They don't care what Nightingale Middle School in Tumbuktu is doing, but they would enjoy listening to some stories.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
