Reading with children!

Children learn to love the sound of language before they even notice the existence of printed words on a page. Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world.

Teachers and parents have limited time when it comes to finding FREE, high-quality online resources for their children.

Below are links to few reading websites which are FREE!


Storyline Online

Since 1993, the Screen Actors Guild Foundation has been committed to championing children’s literacy. ‘Storyline Online’ features professional actors reading notable children’s books and extending supplemental activities for each book co-developed by an early literacy specialist. Content is available online 24/7 free of charge — and ultimately is intended to ensure that every child with Internet access can be read (and enjoy the benefits of) a bedtime story.

A Pearson Foundation Initiative, We Give Books offers students a unique opportunity to read for social good.  Each book that is read results in a book that is donated to a charity for children.  While the books are not read aloud, they allow students to practice “Read to Self” with a good fit book during center time.  There are books for children in preschool through fourth grade.

Some areas of Starfall are part of their premium service, they have many early reader stories available for free.  Students can follow along as the story is read to them and can, in some instances, help create their own story.  The website is highly engaging and a favorite of young readers.

Discover books from around the world at the International Children’s Digital Library.  The free site does not read the books aloud, but students can read them independently during Read to Self or free time.  This is a great site for extension activities when learning about different regions of the world and can be used effectively into the middle school grades.

Storynory features a collection of original, fairytale, and classic children’s audio stories.  Students can follow along with the story as it is read to them, as the text is also included on the site.  There are also some great features available that give you the option of downloading the audio to your computer, listening to “catch phrase” explanations, translating text into different languages (especially helpful for your ELL students!), and more.
