Starfall

So, I know that it has become abundantly clear that summer blogging is low on my priority list. Sorry about that. It's busy and I've had writer's block lately. I was chatting with a lady at the pool the other day who suggested the website Starfall for Jules. Apparently, my kids had already used it in school. I swear, they don't tell me anything. But I digress. So, she's been having fun with that the past few days, brushing up on her reading skills before school starts Monday. The real surprise was how awesome their pre-reading section is for Leia. She absolutely loves it. It is so much easier for her to use (with her limited computer skills) than sites like PBS kids or SesameStreet.org. I highly recommend it for the 3 year olds out there.

Starfall is really great! You should check with their school, our school gave us a code to use on the site that gave us access to a bunch of extra activities on starfall. Ian's computer class used starfall almost exclusively, I think.
