Reading resources on the web

Friday night my colleague (3rd grade teacher who is blessed with my oldest this year) and I are presenting technology based Reading Resources to our K-6 families. We worked together on a list of our favorite websites and I looked for reading apps for older kids way too much over the last week. The result is a pretty decent collection of recommended resources from two National Board Certified Teachers! Unfortunately the hyperlinks didn't copy... Here is a link to her page (which by the way has some great math links too) until I fix it on here.

Reading and Writing Resources

Starfall - Starfall has games, books, word families, poetry, etc.

Storyline Online - This site provides an on-line streaming video program featuring Screen Actors Guild members reading children's books aloud.

Timberland Library - This site links to the kids section of Timberland Library. Through this page, you can access Tumblebooks, comics, magazine, book lists, etc.

Waltke’s Web - A Tennessee teacher’s website that has spelling words, activities, etc that are part of our reading series.

Award Books - Caldecott Award winning books

ReadWriteThink - International Reading Association - Parents guide to after-school activities.

Roy the Zebra - Reading games

We Give Books - Read books from the free digital library and We Give Books gives books to children who don’t have them.

PBS Kids - Reading Games

Storybird -Storybirds are short, art-inspired stories you make to share, read, and print. Read them like books, play them like games, and send them like greeting cards. They’re curiously fun.

Wacky Web Tales- Mad libs that are geared for grade 3 and up. A great way to practice parts of speech.

Funbrain - Reading - Mad Libs Junior - Mad libs that are more structured. You choose from a pre-formed list of nouns, verbs, etc.

Word It Out - Input words and they will be transformed into a word cloud.
