Early Childhood Sites

Over the last 2 years I have researched and tested many websites for my youngest students and as a result I have compiled a list of my favorite early childhood websites. All of the sites have been tested by my pre-k and kindergarten classes, and also a few younger family members and friends in the 3-5 age group.

The link to my pre-k (ages 3-5) links page is:

and my kindergarten (ages 5-7) links page can be found here:  http://www.wix.com/salliemichalsky/computer-lab#!__k 

I would like to take a moment to highlight my all-time favorite early childhood website: www.starfall.com 

Starfall started off as a phonics based website for early learners but has in recent months expanded to include mathematics as well. This site can be easily navigated by children as young as 3 years old and is relevant for children all the way up to 7 and 8 years of age. Children who cannot read yet are cued to click on things by looking for the objects that “sparkle” and when children do not click on something within a reasonable amount of time a large green arrow appears to point to what needs to be clicked on. This is a favorite for all my prek-2nd grade students.
