Blabberize is one of those funny websites that students simply love. Blabberize allows students to animate a picture (like a llama or an astronaut) and make it "say" what the student is saying. Think about how you can use this for literature groups while reading Charlotte's Web. You can have the students tell the story from the animal's perspective and actually have the animal "tell" the story. This is also a great way to encourage your shy speakers to present and practice their speaking skills. Another easy way to use this program is for you to record your directions to students when you have a sub! Students love to listen to talking llamas!
