Integrating The Internet and Elementary Reading Instruction
Here are some sites that will assist elementary teachers in using the Internet to enhance reading instruction.  Some of the sites have book reviews children can read.  Others are companion sites to books that the children can read.  Those sites often have online games and activities to use with the books.  Author sites give students insight into the life of the author as well as the author's other works.  Interactive sites allow students to choose their own story path.  Many television shows also have companion Web sites.  For younger children you will find sites that allow them click through stories and picture books. that are read aloud on line.  There are even online word games.
