Free Reading Websites for Kids

At Really Good Stuff, we know that teachers and parents have limited time when it comes to finding free, high-quality online resources for their children.  When we first published the 11 Free Reading Websites for Kids article, we had no idea the response it would have.  In fact, the cry for more resources encouraged us to publish 11 Free Math Websites for Kids.   We hope you find this article and the free resources in contains helpful!


Free Reading Sites for Kids

Free resources are always a teacher’s dream, but when it comes to free sites to use during reading instruction the choices can be few and far between.  Whether you are looking for a site to use during the Daily 5’s “Listen to Reading” time or want to provide students with a fun early-finisher activity, the sites below are ideal.  Designed for elementary age students, these reading sites are both free and kid-friendly.

As always, it is strongly recommended that teachers view the sites before introducing them to their students to make sure the content is appropriate for the grade/age level.


Be sure to check out 11 Free Math Websites for Kids and 11 Free Science Websites for Kids too!

    Hey Brandi,
    I came across this article on Pinterest. On my browser the article is not showing any of the 11 links. Is there an error on the site?

    You can also add and  Both are free websites that give students Non-Fiction texts/articles.  I really like because the same text has been adjusted to meet the needs of several different reading levels. has short articles and often comes with a video.

    When you get their locations, you can catch up with messages. You can compose an <a href=””>email list</a> that has a tempting headline that would bring your lead to click on it, overall known as opening your email. Next, you have to provide for them a convincing motivation to go to a presentation page that would present your item or administration.

    Thank you so much for these great websites. I am a reading coach and was looking for a variety of websites to give to a first grade teacher. She wants to use them during her center time. Awesome!!!

    Hi Ann,
    If you visit each individual site you can sign-up for an account with each of them there. Most don’t even require registration which is fantastic! They’re free for everyone. Enjoy!

    How do you sign up? Is there a process I half to go throw to sign up? Can I use it for homeschooling? What grades are these websites for?

    This is so cool! I am 8 yrs old in the 2nd grade. I read on a 3rd to 4th grade level.
    I like this because I can pick which ever age group I want. I am having so much fun.
    Thanks to my Grandma’s friend who told her about this. Thanks for making it free!!

    On the facebook ad, it was mentioned that a poster for students could be printed out, so they could log on to these sites. Please advise as to how to obtain poster.

    I like the stories. However, I would like it if the children could see the words and read along with the reader.
    Thanks, Robin Ivey
