Making story time more interesting

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by jellybean1311, Jan 7, 2011.

  1. I am in year 1 and was wondering if anyone knew of any websites where they have ebooks or videos of stories for children to be able to sit and listen/watch?
    I used espresso but there are only 6 stories on there. I want to find stories that the children may know and will enjoy. I enjoy reading a book to them but sometimes a more interactive approach would be better for the children. Any ideas where I can find some suitable stories online?

    I use youtube to watch videos of stories we have previously read, or ones that link to a topic, but I know you can't always get it in schools. If you can there's lots of cartoon versions on there - percy the park keeper, funnybones etc.
    Also the cbeebies website has lots of interactive stories.

    I think that having an adult read a story to a class is much better than any 'interactive' activity. The skills of listening and engaging in language as well as enjoying a story cannot be underestimated. For story time (and hopefully it is daily) the very best activity you can do is read fabulous books well.
