Friday Find II

Friday just got a little bit better because of this fabulous find:

Introducing: Storyline Online

Storyline Online is an amazing website featuring members of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) reading contemporary children’s books! Each book featured on this site has activities & lesson ideas included! Now that is fabulous!


Boasting over 20 books, this site answers a need for substitutes who are scrambling to find an engaging Language Arts lesson. Whether students listen to it individually at a lab or as a class on a screen projector, this site is fun & entertaining! It also provides all you need to make it a complete lesson, with enriching materials to increase interest in the material and learn more about the story itself!

After selecting a book, you are introduced to to content & author. To Be Adam is read by James Earl Jones — pretty neat!

Notice the tabs at the bottom of the screen: clicking on “Let’s Read it” opens up a screen showing the pictures as the story is read (not just the author reading for the duration of the book). Below, you find two ways to find content for the rest of your lesson: Related Activities & More Activities.

So next time you find yourself with extra time on your hands, turn to this site for some [famous] reading fun! Go check it out!

Here is an example of what students will view on StorylineOnline with Elijah Wood:

Friday’s Fabulous Find

Happy Friday! During my time subbing, I have filled a notebook with the numerous good ideas, activities, & finds I’ve discovered along the way.  Each Friday, I’m going to showcase some of my favorite ideas as a Fabulous Find.

Today’s Find: Free Fonts!

Whether you are making substitute business cards, substitute letterhead for notes to teachers, or creating your own worksheets & handouts — you can’t beat Free Fonts!


I stumbled upon a fabulous site, Fonts for Peas, that offers a wealth of free fonts & instructions on how to download & use with your word processor.

Take a look at the gorgeous samples below!

Beautiful, right? I can just begin the long list of uses for these cuties! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Instruction for downloading can be found here.

happy typing,
