Tell Me a Smorie…

Friday, August 31st, 2007
Smories are original short stories written and read by children.  They were thought of by a pair of sisters who enjoyed reading and recording stories for each other.   The website is super simple.  Its just a collection of pictures of the children who have written recorded the stories.  Clicking on the picture takes you to a video of the story being read. Above the child is the text of the story that scrolls by as the story is being read.

This sounds like a great resource to use as a listening center or a computer activity.  The site is safe for students to use.

EXTRA:  Kindergarten teachers may want to pay close attention to the companion site: Walphabet for humourous (non Youtube) videos about the alphabet.  Check it out here:
