Levi, reading and Starfall

August 16th, 2010 by Nate

Levi watching starfall.comLevi is watching Starfall.com on our TV. It has everything from letters to small books. Levi and Isaac both have enjoyed and learned from this web site. It has helped Levi in his love of letters and in starting to read.

I would call it like an interactive Sesame Street. Not only does it teach letters in language in a fun way. But, it also provides small game “quizzes” that make the learning fun.

Levi really loves his letters almost to obsession. One of his favorites is the silent E video. Starfall uses songs and games to teach phonics and exceptions in a fun and memorable way.

Another favorite of both boys is the the Pick a Pumpkin game. It gives them different options to make their own pumpkin. This game specifically teaches the short U sound. I still can hear it sing “uh, uh-uh, uh-uh-uh.” Yeah, I have heard it that much.

In closing, Starfall.com is an excellent resource for teaching children to read. It requires Adobe Flash Player, so it may not work on your smartphone. It should work on your Mac or Windows based PC.
