I’ve recently added links to some new stories and songs that would be helpful to Beginning English Language Learners. They all have text with audio support, and can be found on my English For Beginners page.
The two stories join the literally thousands of talking stories that are already there. Katrina the Caterpillar and Julia and the Big Wave are from Reading Is Fundamental, are large literacy organization. You can find links to many of their other stories in the same section.
I learned about all three from Kindersite, a quite impressive site with links to all sorts of activities for young children and beginning English Language Learners of all ages.
