I came across something advertised in a Zellers (Walmart-esque store in Canada) flyer today. “Follow Along” DVDs. They sounded like DVD read-alongs, which further research says they are, but there’s no book involved. They’re put out by the National Captioning Institute and I guess you watch the video and read the captioning at the same time, to build reading skills. I have no idea if they’re full length movies or shortened. I also sort of wonder why they sell them since most DVDs have captions to turn on anyway, but maybe they’re designed to get straight at it without menus, so kids can play them easily. So not exactly a read-along, but interesting just the same so I thought I’d post it.
