Speakaboos - animated stories read by celebrities

Speakaboos is an amazing site that was shared with me by Renee Combs, 2nd grade teacher, East Albemarle Elementary.  Thanks for sharing Renee!

Speakaboos  is an online site with award-winning videos that teach reading skills, life lessons, and creativity in a fun and safe environment. Each story comes to life with educational worksheets, activities, and games. Speakaboos' timeless tales are ideal for kids of any age.

Speakaboos brings classic children's entertainment into a digital world. Beloved characters and treasured stories are given new life through amazing celebrity performances, beautiful illustrations, and original music. At Speakaboos, children develop literacy skills while learning about technology in a safe and fun environment.

I found this site while searching for an online version of "A Christmas Carol."  Then I realized it had many other books online.  I like it because it includes the text with the stories as they are read to the students.  I have added it to my Class blog as a website to be used on the days students work on "Listening to Reading" during "Daily 5" centers (CAFE). ~ Renee Combs
