Reading Web Resources for Students

I'm teaching summer school this month and using some of these even whole group with my kiddos. I like that they are reading the story and showing the text along with it-great for that sound/word connection. These are also links I add to the class website for kids to use for practice at home. Are you familiar with these?

1) Tumblebooks is a good one. They have a paid membership, but many libraries are nice enough to have it on their websites for free. I use Atlantic City Public Library-but if you Google it various libraries come up.

My kids love Big Chicken, 50 Below and Princess Justina Albertina.

2) Story Place

This one has fairy tale stories told with a twist. My kids love Dinosaurs Rock. I encourage them to even watch the ones for "Preschool" because they are just like their decodable texts in the repitition of words.


Not the Electric Company when we were young :) but they do still say "Hey, you guys!". Lots of cute animations for reading strategies. *warning* Silent "e" is a Ninja will stay in your head forever!!! :)

Pin It!

  2. I use the Electric Company videos in some of my reading flipcharts & the kids are crazy about them! I definitely will have to check into Story Place. That sounds like a great resource! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Small world- I was born in Atlantic City, and grew up on the Island in a different city. My family still lives near there. Will check out Tumblebooks.
