Leecy,

Thanks for sharing the interactive version of Story by Story. Like you described, it offers FREE access to read-alouds and practice activities for 12 stories. The "complete" version of Story by Story (over 100 stories and word lists in simple to more complex phonetic order) is available from LDA of Minnesota. They own the copyright and offer a print or PDF edition for a reasonable price: http://ldaminnesota.org/services/educational-products/  I developed SxS for struggling adult readers who wanted to read real text, not just study word lists. I recommend that ABE/ESL teachers adapt, modify, or expand the stories and word lists to fit their students' interests and needs.

Thank yoy Marn, for your work and additional details. I'll add the ELA groups to this posting so that they can benefit from it as well.

If anyone here is using these great tools, please share your experience with us! Thanks. Leecy
