29. Aesop's Fables - Listen and learn through AnswerTips

This is a resource that is fun, useful, and highlights a few different aspects important to the dyslexic individual. Although there are manyAesop's sites on the internet, this is slightly better than others I know. I like it because:

1) It uses Aesop's Fables, which are wonderful reminders that you can make a whole story with few words. So a child could read the story from start to end, and be shown that you do not have to write too many words to tell your story.

2) Some of the stories have been read out. The voice is not always easy to understand. (She is young America is a good reading, but does not have enough skills to add all the intonation that a professional reader does.) However, it could be a stimulus for encouraging a child to use the technology to record their own version.

3) The website uses AnswerTips. This means that any person that does not understand a word can double click on it and find the meaning (as well as listen to how the individual work is spoken). Some of the wording does tend to be archaic, so this is very useful. The use of this service is to be encouraged.

4) The stories can be use as a "rewrite in your own words" exercise.
