I thought I would share some of the websites my kids enjoy.
Story Online is a website that your kids can go to and listen and watch stories being read out loud. One of the books they can listen to is Polar Express. There are also activities that accompany each story.
Tumble Book Library is also a website that your kids can go to a watch and listen to a book being read. These books can be read in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Russian!
http://www.poptropica.com/ – My kids enjoy making their own funny characters and playing around in this virtual world.
http://www.starfall.com/ – This is good for younger kids who are learning to read.
http://www.janbrett.com/ – Jan Brett is an author and illustrator that my kids learned about in kindergarten. They enjoy looking at her website, which has games and coloring sheets based on her books.
