Recently, it dawned on me that he really needed more experience negotiating computer tasks completely on his own, so I [insert huge gulp here] have been relinquishing control of my laptop for little bursts of time here and there for him to cruise certain educational websites that he absolutely loves. I was floored at how well he did from the very beginning, and it has been really terrific to see how much he’s learning through his time online!
If you’re looking for an educational website for preschoolers, you need not look any further than Starfall.com. The content on this site is extensive enough to accomodate the needs of children just learning their letters to those with a solid reading knowledge base. It is fantastic! Jack loves that he is able to easily navigate through the site on its own because of the way the content guides you from one screen to the next, and I love that he has such a marvelous time engaged in constructive “play.” It is truly a win/win!
