    I'm not an ESL teacher but am doing some volunteer work with ELL'S. Does anybody know of any resources other than starfall.com where kids can actually hear words being spoken while they read them?

    Reading A-Z and it's sister site RAZ kids. You must have a subscription, though. In my opinion, Reading A-Z is WELL worth the $$. Thousands of leveled books, some words are read aloud if they are underlined, you can search for themes, etc.

    Try www.spellingcity.com. While it is a spelling program, they use the words in a sentence and the program speaks the word and the sentence.

    Good Sites

    I knew A-Z reading had books, but didn't realize they had audio. Spellingcity site looks good because the part I looked at had complete sentences students could listen to. Thanks.

    Wilbooks has great free online videos of talking books and flash cards with narration. Wilbooks has been a big help to my students. Their products include great photos. The kids actually prefer it to Starfall.
