How I Use It
This is a great site for students to explore alone, with enough activities that students will not run out of things to do! You can share a certain story with students to reinforce a concept you are teaching. It also makes a great center activity. It is extremely kid friendly and engaging for students to use.
My Take
This website offers a wealth of reading activities at different levels. It offers activities about each letter of the alphabet, short vowel and other word part activities, as well as beginning and then more advanced stories for beginning readers. There is scaffolding at every level; there is always the option to have the story, or just a word, read aloud.
