In most states across the nation pre-K learners must know a battery of things ABC’s included of course so that they are not at-risk of failure — when they start regular school in kindergarten.
This FREE and educational website is today’s family’s best friend to “work” at educational goals for pre-K through 2nd grade learners. I have used Starfall.com as an educator for “in-service” school projects and at home with my family.
It should be used for quality time with young learners and independently by young learners. It should replace time spent with video games that have no residual value!
Starfall.com opened in September of 2002 as a free public service to teach children to read with phonics. Our systematic phonics approach, in conjunction with phonemic awareness practice, is perfect for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, special education, home-school, and English language development (ELD, ELL, ESL). Starfall is an educational alternative to other entertainment choices for children.
In May of 2009, we released the Starfall Kindergarten Reading and Language Arts Curriculum. Our method of instruction motivates children in an atmosphere of imagination and enthusiasm, provides opportunities for child-directed instruction, and supports English language learners and reading necessary to do Mathematics well too.
To maximize the effect just like games connect your laptop with a VGA cord to the flat screen television.
In stead of buying waste-of-time and violent games that also talk trash…get into this FREE website and visit The Starfall Store too. This is a fun way to “Change a Life this Summer”!
