Read the following: start slow and then speed up
I cdnoult blveiee that I cluod auaclty uesdnatrnrd what Iwas rdaning. The phaonmneal pweor of the human mind Aoccdring to rscheearch at Cmabridge Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in what order the ltteers in a word are, the only iprmaotnt thing is that hte frist and lsat ltteer be in the right pclae. The rset can be a taotle mses and you can still raed it wouthit a porbelm. This is bcuseae the human nimd does not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the owrd as a wlohe. Amzanig huh?
This week with Israel home all day from school we finally checked out www.starfall.com. It's the site his teacher uses during their computer time. If you have any pre-k or kg children it's a fun alphabet and learning to read site. Zac the Rat taught us all about the short a sound in a silly story of jam, ants, and fans. Also- you get to decorate your own gingerbread man and your own snowman (Israel's top favorites). The site also recieves feedback. After every activity you do it asks if you liked it (smiley face), if if was okay (straight mouth face), or didn't like it (frowny face). I like that they're checking in with the kids for what works and what doesn't.
Another site worth mentioning- The Yuckiest Site on the Internet- This one is super fun. We found it in our search to answer Israel's "Why is my pee yellow?" Pimples farts, burps, and funnybones- get your answers here. Any boys out there especially are gonna love this site.
Do you have any sites that you've found really work well for your children? Please share.
