Here is a terrific website for kids to explore stories. It is StorylineOnline.
You can view the videos of some famous actors and actresses reading out the books for children. The stories are read expressively and clearly. As you watch the videos, you can also view the animated pictures from the books and the text so that you can read as you listen to the stories. If you are already reading the books that are listed on the website, you or your students may want to give a try. The best part of the stories is that you can download activities and exercises for children or do some of them online to support using the stories in the classroom.
You can play the stories as a whole class or you can assign the students to read them at home. This is also a great website to suggest to parents to use at home.
This is a website that worth checking out definitely.
