Terrific Software For Little Kids

Some friends recommended www.starfall.com for pre-reading exercises, so I’ve been letting my kids try it. They’re having a lot of fun playing around with the different games.

I won’t say they’re actually “learning to read” right at the moment; however, if they’re going to play on the computer anyway, I’m glad they’re doing something meaningful. Perhaps eventually the lessons will stick.

Just wanted to share.

My 3.5-year-old daughter loves Starfall. I have concealed from her the fact that it’s possible to access it from my laptop, since I would never again be allowed to check my email in peace.

Bookmarked, thanks! I just hope it’s still around in a year when she’s ready for it. And that I remember it’s in my bookmarks, of course. :smiley:
