Sample Referral Email 

Dear families,

It has been my pleasure to teach your children over this past school year. Thank you for the opportunity.

Over the past year, if your child came home rambling about jungles dancing, dragons roaring, or kittens meowing, please know that they’re probably talking about our read-alouds. We’ve been using an award-winning mobile app called Novel Effect which uses voice-recognition to follow along with interactive music, sound effects, and character voices as we read aloud from our favorite children’s books. Kids are more engaged and enjoy reading more because of the immersive experience. I highly recommend you download the app to use during your normal reading routine at home. Check out how this parent reads to her son using Novel Effect. You’ll love it!

The people at Novel Effect reached out to teachers and offered a few opportunities to encourage read-alouds at home while providing more books for my classroom.

I am able to offer you 20% off an annual Premium subscription to Novel Effect which comes with unlimited access to all the eBooks and soundscapes in their library. It’s a great way for you to continue the magical read alouds we created in the classroom this year. And for every one of you who subscribes, my classroom will earn $5 at to buy books and other supplies. Click here for my link. 

So if you want to create magical moments with your child at home when you snuggle-up with a great book, check it out. Be forewarned, they will ask to read more and more!

Thank you,

Your Name
