My friend Mica just sent me the link to Storyline Online–an online video program staring Screen Actors Guild members reading storybooks.
I just watched Caitlin Wachs read Sebastian’s Roller Skates–a very cute story about a shy boy that discovers roller skates in a park. Sebastian has a number of adventures learning how to roller skate and ultimately learns to overcome his shyness.
I love this website because it not only features fun stories and videos, but captions with text so that students can read along with the featured SAG narrators. There are also follow up activities with each story so that students can build their reading comprehension skills.
