Children's Stories Online - Free Children's Books for All Ages
As the founder of the KART Foundation, a child's literacy organization, I find Story Time For Me to be an excellent adaptation of traditional storytelling in the internet age.

10 Word Cloud Generators You Have Probably Never Tried A few days back, we looked at five great ways to incorporate word cloud generators into your classroom. There are obviously many more uses out there for them – but that is a discussion for another post. We’ve mentioned most of these before – in a post from way back when – so I won’t go into too much detail about each individual one, but we’ve added a few notable ones to the list.
