    I'm looking for something to spice up my computer center during literacy time. I currently use starfall.com with my first graders. Does anyone have other good sites for primary students that focus on literacy? (Listening to stories, etc.)

    RIF (Reading Is Fundamental) website has a few books that you can read online. It's very engaging and parents/children can read at home too.

    Enjoy Clifford Stories

    Go to the Scholastic teachers home page. One of the blue menu bar selections is student activities. Then go to the Clifford stories, in the 1-2 grade link. Your students can read the stories themselves or have them read to them and each page of the story lets them modify the page a bit. There are also word building activities like making CVC words and initial sounds.

    Our school subscribes to Tumble Books. It is great! They have a feature where you can read stories or listen to stories. Students can also play educational/interactive games that go along with the stories. I think it is about $400 for the entire school. We are a very poor school/district, but I think our PTO paid for it.
