I am so impressed with this website and my son LOVES it! From their website: Starfall motivates children to read with phonics and is perfect for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, special education, homeschool, and English language development (ELD, ELL, ESL). There are 4 categories:
2. Learn to Read
3. It’s Fun to Read
4. I’m Reading
HERE is a great explanation of the 4 categories along with other useful information.
My 2 year old loves learning the alphabet with their ABC’s Section. As an example, when you click on the letter A, the uppercase letter comes on the screen with a voice pronouncing how it sounds. Then it repeats with the lowercase letter A. Click the arrow and an apple appears which the voice also pronounces. Click the arrow again and an alligator appears and when you click the letter a in the word, the voice pronounces the word. It repeats again with the word astronaut- all with fun sounds and animations! The next section my son isn’t able to do quite yet, but an apple tree appears with Upper & Lower Case Letter A’s. You then have to match them to the correctly labeled basket. Each letter has a different game and it also does a plural word for each letter too!
There are SO MANY things you can do on this website!!! There are even very cool online books for the different skill levels. There is even a download center where you can print books (B & W), reading awards, and other print outs.
