Free Online Story Time & Activities

Check out the online story time at Storyline Online. There are several stories from which to choose along with downloadable activity guides.

From the site:
The Screen Actors Guild Foundation is proud to bring you Storyline Online, an online streaming video program featuring SAG members reading children’s books aloud. Each book includes accompanying activities and lesson ideas. 

I just finished watching/listening to The Rainbow Fish read by Ernest Borgnine and it was delightful! Listening to these stories is a fabulous way to encourage early readers to add expression to their own reading.
