Storytown

Storytown Student & Parent Online Reading Site

Ralston Public Schools  has implemented the reading series Storytown in all six elementary schools. Ralston Public Schools purchased the capability for students and parents to access the student textbook and interactive readers online for families that have internet capability. Ralston’s Baright Public Library in downtown Ralston also has computers available for families to use to access the Storytown site. 

Storytown’s site is called ThinkCentral and provides your child access to their classroom textbook online so your child can complete assignments at home, practice reading the stories, share a story with the family or keep up with their reading instruction while on vacation or out of town. As a parent, you can view the lesson in the preview section, become aware of which reading skill will be focused on in the classroom, check the vocabulary your child will be learning, and find out about the author and illustrator of the stories used in the reading theme. The site has interactive readers that provide children audio and highlighted words for each story in their textbook.

Research confirms that the more a student reads, the better reader they become. Please go online and check out this great family reading resource that goes with the Ralston reading series. Below are directions to Storytown’s ThinkCentral site.
