She must gather seeds from grasses and plants, and spread those seeds across the land.
Book: Always, Clementine. Clementine is a mouse. A very clever mouse. The thing is, Clementine is not free. She’s a lab mouse who is used for research. Always, Clementine is written as a series of letters from Clementine to Rosie, a chimpanzee who she meets in the lab. The chapters start ‘Dear Rosie’ and end with the marvellous mouse signing off, ‘Always, Clementine’. The story gives voice to Clementine’s thoughts. Readers get to peek inside her genius brain, to see what she sees, and experience what she does as she escapes the lab and has to survive in the outside world. That’s where the story really takes off.

Develops grade-level appropriate content knowledge. Giving students access to grade-level materials by providing an audiobook accommodation improves their self-esteem and increases their participation in class and peer discussions. They are now able to work alongside their peers and get hours of time back. Just because a student can’t read the words in the same way as their peers, doesn’t mean they aren’t developmentally ready to learn this information. Listening to audiobooks brings the information to the student when they are ready for it, not when they can read it.
