There is an awesome new website that’s just been launched in the UK where you can read, listen to and download a new story from a different author every Monday and it’s all FREE. It’s called Story Cloud and it runs from 18 June to 3 September 2012.
To read the stories you click on one of the icons and choose to read or listen to the story. Then go and find the surprises in the pictures and see the challenges and tasks for you to write your own story. It’s a great resource for primary teachers to use or for a boredom buster for the school holidays.
This week’s story is called The Talent Show, written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Kristyna Litten. Other stories to come are written by David Almond, Malorie Blackman, Debi Gliori and Philip Ardagh. Check it out now at www.storycloud.co.uk.
