While on the subject of Digital Storytelling, I found another website the other day that I’d like to share.
It’s called Storynory and the idea behind the site is to provide audio files of children’s stories. Some of the stories have some very nice illustrations to accompany them. And even better, the site is free!
There is a mix of classic stories, such as the Grimm fairytales and Aesops Fables but also some original stories unique to the Storynory site such as The Monkey Who Loved Chocolate.
The audio files can be played through the website, but can also be downloaded to be played offline, if that is easier for you to do so.
I don’t know if the authors have plans to do anything more “whiteboard friendly” – maybe turn them into big books or anything like that. But for now if you want some nice stories for your class to listen to, then Storynory is well worth a visit.
