What it is: Inkless Tales is a neat literacy website with a mission statement that I love: “You can do anything. Try, try again. Don’t give up. Experiment. Write, draw, explore, and more!” Inkless tales has features that will infuse your literacy classroom with life including: an animated alphabet, coloring pages (for print or online), online games, offline fun (finger puppets, downloads, crafts), Mother Goose rhymes and riddles, online stories to read, poetry to read, poetry to listen to, poetry to write, Inkless tunes, tongue twisters, and a place to learn science. Inkless Tales is an absolute treasure trove for the primary classroom.
How to integrate Inkless Tales into the classroom: Inkless Tales was created by author Elizabeth Williams Bushey with the goal of bring quality literacy content to children around the world in an online environment. She has hit the nail on the head with this site. Inkless Tales makes an excellent literacy center on classroom computers. Students can visit the Inkless Tales site to read, practice their alphabet, play learning games, etc. Inkless Tales also makes an outstanding poetry center where students can read, listen to, and write poetry. The animated alphabet would be fun to use when learning letters on a projector connected computer or an interactive whiteboard.
