Signed Stories

Signed Stories is a wonderful site that is fabulous for all students- hearing and hearing impaired! 
 Signed Stories is a site where stories are read aloud AND signed at the same time.
{This is a British site so it's BSL not ASL} 
It is a fantastic resource to give all students access to engaging texts.

Here's the goal of the site in their own words:
Signed Stories has a very simple goal – to help improve the literacy of deaf children nationwide by allowing them to share in the joy of storytelling.
It’s also designed to provide useful advice and guidance for the parents, carers and teachers of deaf children; and for the deaf parents of hearing children.
Books enrich all our lives – they’re a vital part of a happy childhood. We thank all the writers, illustrators and publishers who have made them freely available, the sponsors and the celebrities who are supporting this not-for-profit venture, and the many organisations collaborating with us. 
Everyone – deaf or hearing – can use Signed Stories. Please keep coming back to see new books as they arrive, and please tell your friends and work colleagues about this free website.
