starfall.com – Best Phonics and fun website for kids

This is an engaging site to teach phonics and reading. It is free and it has tons of interesting webpages. You can also print the lessons and practice with kids at home or at school. A must have link for the early learners.

Application Developer Notes

Starfall’s ABC section teaches letter-sound relationships by providing a kid-friendly navigation system that explicitly focuses on each letter of the alphabet. This explicit instruction is most effective in kindergarten and for ESL and special education students when it is combined with exercises in phonemic awareness. When learning to read, students who understand the basic sounds of the language can apply letter-sound relations with greater ease.It is also essential to practice writing in kindergarten because it helps to reinforce phonics and develop reading skills. Starfall’s free ABC printouts provide practice in writing and have suggestions for phonemic awareness activities to assist parents and teachers.
After students learn the predictable relationship between the sounds (phonemes) and letter combinations (graphemes), they should be introduced to regular three letter consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) words. The letter-U pages in this ABC section contain some CVC examples. This is further expanded in Starfall’s Learn to Read section with systematic and explicit phonics instruction.
The Starfall ABC section was produced by Art & Gina Morgan with the guidance of Dr. Steven Schutz. It is with great joy we offer this learning tool to the world, and hope that everyone using it has as much fun as we did creating it!

    My daughter treats our cat terribly, all day long she’s picking him up by his tail or by one leg. She likes to throw him, sit on him, try to stuff him in her toy box, kick him, slap him. She’s so mean.
    I’ve given her spankings, and sent her to her room for her bad behavior, I explain to her why she’s getting a spank or being sent to her room,
    and still she continues to be horrible to the cat. I’ve tried to tell her that he’s a baby, and say things like “do nice kitty”.

    The way she acts toward our cat makes me afraid to have another child.

    What to do? Is this normal or is she just evil to animals?.
    Ok, I may have exagerrated a little. I mean she doesn’t do this constantly all day long. She do it here and there throughout the course of the day. It’s just aggravating.
