This site has an (almost) endless supply of suggestions for what students, parents, and teachers can do to encourage more and more reading and literary involvement. Students participate in reading, dramatic, discussion, and artistic activities to reinforce their connection to the printed word and build comprehension in a very active way!

In the Classroom

Use this list as an idea generator for book report alternatives or even for lesson ideas. Share the link or some of the ideas on your tecaher web page for students to choose a book report product/project/performance. Print these suggestions out and share all or some of them with parents in a newsletter,at conference times, or before summer vacation. Give credit for your source, of course!

Billed as the world's first interactive literacy program available in electronic or printed format, this free site offers a fresh approach to guided reading. Leveled guided readers, interactive phonics activities, and printable worksheets make this an all-inclusive site for early reading practice. Just click on the options for poetry, nursery rhymes, guided reading short stories, spelling and ESL practice. Using and viewing the site does not require registration. However, if you want to download the programs and worksheets for off-line use, then a quick registration (free) is required.

tag(s): folktales (65), guided reading (47), nursery rhymes (18), phonics (74), poetry (227), rhymes (33), spanish (106), spelling (169)

In the Classroom

Individual or paired reading at computer stations or laptops would work well. If whiteboards are available, the interactive features open possibilities for whole class or small group guided reading. Several stories are available in Spanish for ESL students. Use the printables to go along with the lessons. One word of caution concerning the alphabet worksheets: the manuscript letters may not be conducive to your school's adopted format.
  This resource requires Adobe Flash and PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

The National Institutes of Health, Department of Health & Human Services has indexed a plethora of songs and midis in the belief that music is good for health! Enjoy the golden oldies, children's songs, holiday pieces, patriotic tunes, and everyone's favorites. Read the lyrics and sing along to the tune as it plays. Besides the genre categorization, the index also lists titles alphabetically. An additional feature is the "Guess this Tune" game. NIEHS carefully screens song selection so that teachers can be assured of the quality of the choices. This site requires Quick time. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): lyrics (20), songs (52)

In the Classroom

You might need headphones or speakers for this site. Songs are a wonderful tool to use with ESL students who often memorize songs more quickly than lists of vocabulary words. Singing helps improve accents as well. Primary grade teachers and those working with speech and language will also find this site useful. Be sure to include the link on your teacher web page for students to use independently.

Some of the songs would also be great background for a class skit or play in primary grades. Turn up your speakers and play a patriotic song as your students act out a patriotic skit in social studies class.

Mainly intended for the elementary crowd, this collection of online stories includes options of listening online or downloading them for more permanent access. The oral recordings of the stories are delightful, often featuring the author of the story as the reader. The stories are accompanied by appropriate sounds and songs and are very fresh and appealing. Besides stories in English, listeners can select stories in French and Italian as well. High school world language teachers will enjoy the chance for students to hear a full narrative read well in the language. Requires Quicktime. Downloading the stories offers them in MP3 format.

tag(s): french (86), italian (31)

In the Classroom

Use these delightful stories as opportunities to develop listening skills by playing the story, then asking questions. Or inspire your children to build fluency and expression by creating their own recordings (podcasts) after listening to these. Be sure to place the link on your teacher web page for students to share stories over and over at home, too.

Users of this very appealing site listen to and read a variety of stories, poems, while viewing accompanying drawings. Teachers will like the Read a Story options with simple Dolch words. Children can submit their own poems and may see themselves published online, but you will want to get parent permission first! Many writing prompts and easy writing tasks look like fun on this site; additional games on the site have an educational aspect. In addition to online activities, there are a few stories and games available to print out. Many activities require the Flash plug in. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

Teachers and school librarians can pull up a list by theme of early elementary books and accompanying activities including fingerplays, craft projects, and songs. Besides the usual fiction picture book titles, findings also include appropriate nonfiction titles. When a teacher clicks on a selected book, a nice summary of the book appears. Suggested links to other related subjects allow you to expand the search, as well.

Download audio recordings of books and poetry in the public domain (free from copyright issues). All books are read and recorded by volunteers for this site. You need Quicktime to listen on the computer. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page. Several options are available for downloading, including podcasts. Hear selections read in other languages (Note that the public domain applies in the U.S. and may not in other languages/countries). Users can search for works by category, genre, author, title, or reader. The site welcomes volunteer readers. The collection is constantly growing, so check back often.

In the Classroom

Use these for read-along listening, to help weaker readers or ESL/ELL students, or to practice listening and pronunciation. World language and literature teachers can play poetry or passages from lit texts in class or assign them as homework. Make sure you have headphones or speakers for your computer, if needed. High school club advisers might like to offer this as a service opportunity for students to become readers.

This website has a vast collection of common English language songs (mostly "pop") which have been selected for a grammatical focus. Instructors can select the grammar point they wish to instruct and choose from a variety of songs that feature the specific need. Songs are printed as cloze passages, with the fill-in based on the grammatical feature. Unfortunately, there are no sound files attached to the songs. If you have i-Tunes, you could download songs (for a fee). Your students may have some of the songs, as well. There are links to answer keys for all song lyric activity sheets.

tag(s): grammar (217), lyrics (20)

In the Classroom

Check out the information for instructors with each lesson to understand how to use the activities. While most are intended for ESL/ELL instruction and geared toward students who know popular music, selected lessons are good for grammar difficulties in general, so a special ed teacher may find them helpful, as well. Since the site is primarily text-based, you need to READ the directions!

This privately done digitized library focuses on books published before 1923, primarily those with magnificent illustrations. Books digitized are in the public domain and are also available to the large digitization projects going on now with the Google Books project. This site's charm is its ease of use. Users can search by author's last name or by using a list of subject categories. Because the project is fairly small, it's fun to browse through the offerings before deciding on a specific choice. The quality of the digitization is very good and appears to offer complete works. Some books have been reformatted, presumably to allow viewing consistency.

tag(s): air (163)

In the Classroom

Because these books are in the public domain (i.e. older), their language is not "contemporary." The texts would make excellent pieces for reading comprehension passages or culture study of past times, and you need not be worried about copying/pasting text from these into other software and/or making copies. You could even use them as passages on an interactive whiteboard to practice "main idea" or parts of speech.

The illustrations are simple and beautiful. Print out some great artwork for your classroom bulletin boards, copyright-free!

The myths/legends collection would be great for upper elementary or later mythology units. Students can also use the passages and illustrations to create multimedia "tales" of their own. Give them the opening passage and let them write the rest.

NPR is amassing a collection of oral histories by traveling across the country and talking to average people. On this website, users can read or listen to the stories told by a wide variety of Americans. Click "Tell your story" to find Locations & Reservations for traveling Mobile Booths or directions to record on your own. The Do It Yourself guide includes tips on interview questions and an interview check list. Started in 2003, the site has many stories in its archives and frequently adds updates.

In the Classroom

Use this site to reconnect your students with those of other generations and geographic locations. Turn up your speakers and listen to some examples in your classroom. You can even use the story collection site as a model to start your own oral history project for your class or the entire school. You may not want to actually place your recording on the NPR site but instead house them locally in your school or community web site. As major events occur in your community, such as an anniversary or the opening of a new school, engage your students in documenting the event. The general interview guides offer useful interview techniques for school newspapers or news broadcasts, as well.

This free site allows users to learn German, Spanish, or ESL (English) online by studying vocabulary and hearing it pronounced. Students can select English-Spanish or Spanish-English for example. In addition to learning word by word, viewers can select the conjugation approach and focus on verb forms. In this section, students must complete a sentence by inputting the correct verb tense in their selected language. Teacher-users can create their own lessons based on their needs, their previous results in the training, or their own ideas. A free login is required to participate in the lesson-creation section. This website will soon offer other languages, vocabulary and verb conjugations. There are some ads to ignore, but they are not obtrusive.

tag(s): german (62), spanish (106)

In the Classroom

Set up your own language reviews with this site. You can also encourage students to make their own lessons to review items they are having difficulty with. Ask each student group to create a challenge for the rest of the class and have a review day where groups try the others' challenges in a lab or on laptops. For safety reasons, it is best to have students use a single account created by the teacher.

This site, intended for ESL/ELL students, has environmental education issues on six topics; Each topic is available in English, Hmong, Arabic and Somali. Students-- even those without special needs-- can listen to the very simple lesson while viewing a related picture online or they can opt for the print version and read the lesson themselves. English learners and special ed students would benefit from listening and following along with the written versions. Quizzes are available to check comprehension of the material presented. Topics include recycling, reuse, personal involvement in conservation, and hazardous waste disposal. The non-English language choices offered are less common, but this is an extremely useful site for adapting curriculum for ESL and special ed students.

This site offers words and audio clips from songs helpful in teaching ESL. Categories include teaching conversational skills, teaching grammar, and teaching children through songs. Note: you will have to "learn" the song from the clip, a small portion of the entire song. You can download songs ( for a fee), but the clips should be enough to get you started. Links offer further song categories including alphabet songs, holidays and rap! The audio clips require the Quicktime plug in. Although the site has links to purchase books, this is not necessarily a negative feature for teachers who have been searching for ESL songbooks for their classroom.

tag(s): grammar (217), lyrics (20)

In the Classroom

Use ESL songs from books written by ESL specialists! Use links provided for using songs in the regular classroom, too.

Follow the simple suggestions at the end of each set of lyrics for ways to do the activity with your students.
