adventures in unschooling

Starfall.com

Starfall.com is a great online resource for learning to read. Paris (2 1/2), loves the alphabet section! The letter T and B are his favourite. Cassius doesn’t visit this site anymore, but I know other seven years who are just beginning to read, that find it very useful.  I love the simplicity of this site,  and also that there is no advertising.

Stories in the “It’s fun to read” & “I’m reading” section include: Greek myths, Chinese Fables, Comics, Musicians, Poetry, Artists and Magic. These stories are interesting for their own sake, which always help with motivation. Kids can either read the stories themselves or hear the words by clicking on them.
