In the spirit of Everything Educational Thursday, I wanted to post about the website, Starfall. It has online abc games, videos that Becca loves to watch. It uses a phonics approach to reading, simple pictures and lots of repetition. Becca will echo the songs being song and will yell, “mas! mas!” when it ends. When I opened the site up for her tonight, she started yelling, “monkey” as soon as she saw it (When you click on the “m”, the song is all about monkeys which she loves!).
This site was recommended to me by other moms and Becca has really enjoyed it). According to the site, it is targeted to a 1st grade population but at 21 mos, Becca definitely responds to the various chants and songs.
What pre-reading or reading websites would you recommend?
