Ziptales is a new online language arts website offering teaching and learning tools for students and teachers at all levels of the elementary school.
Ziptales was created by teachers to enhance children’s reading and writing skills. If offers a ‘blended’ learning solution to the challenge of literacy.
When children can read, even at a ‘beginner’ level, the key task is to keep them motivated and excited by the desire to read. Ziptales is proven to make reading an enjoyable experience, and to raise skill levels.
Ziptales is built on the concept of ‘genres’ - that is, stories with a wide range of different styles. It offers cartoons, puppet plays, graphic novels, adventure, animal stories, comedy, fairy tales, fantasy, mystery, myths, people stories, scary stories, true stories and even ‘yucky’ stories. All tastes and needs are catered for.
We offer over 600 modules of educational content. Our library is separated into a ‘Pre-K’ section (ages 3-5), a ‘Developing Literacy’ (K to Grade 2) section, and an ‘Extending Literacy’ (Grades 3 to 6) section.
Ziptales features include:
All stories are designed for children, age appropriate, and of high ethical standards encouraging good values.
