A couple of years ago when I went searching for sites that would “read aloud” to kids I couldn’t find many. I was always on the look out because there will always be those students thatjust can not read on their own for extended periods of time. Either they don’t have the skills yet or their activity level doesn’t allow it. I would like to plop a student like this at the computer and let them listen to a story and enjoy reading in another way.
This past fall I was very surprised to find many more web sites that had good stories. One of them is Signed Stories. What makes this site unique is that the stories are done in sign language as well as being read aloud allowing hearing and non-hearing students the enjoyment of a good book.
