Hollywood actors read stories to your kids while you…

Elijah Wood reads “Me and My Cat” to my son while I get dinner ready.   On the drive to school, Jason Alexander reads “Dad are you the Tooth Fairy.”

Yup, I have CONNECTIONS!  Actually, no.  The truth is I discovered this fabulous website called, “Storyline Online,” a program of the Screen Actors Guild Foundation.

What is Storyline Online?

A collection of videos featuring famous actors reading quality stories.  Illustrations, colours and textures of each book are prominent in each production.   A choice of twenty-four stories includes learning activity guides. Grades: K-6.

Here are a few clips featuring Amber Rose Tamblyn, Robert Guillaume, and Melissa Gilbert.

 

 

 

Why Storyline Online is great for kids.

- Actors model a love for reading.

- Text is displayed with illustrations to practice reading along.

- Good variety of quality stories available 24/7, free of charge!

- Narration by professional actors is excellent, and bring stories to life.

 

Why Storyline Online is great for parents.

- Learning guides are included to further discussions about each story.

- Actors will repeat the same story over and over and over, so you don’t have to!

- Ten minutes of guilt-free sanity, maybe even more.  

- It’s FREE and accessible anywhere with an internet connection.

 

Well, it has been a real pleasure welcoming these celebrities into our home and minivan!   My kids are looking forward to more stories, and for a change I don’t  feel their time is wasted on the computer.

I hope your family enjoys this online resource.   Let me know what you think.
