We been doing Starfall since Yvette was 20 mths and we been benefit from this free program on the internet. Ever since Yvette turned 2, I got bored over it. And since I have requested my relatives to buy many educational programme, yes many, but none could get Yvette fall for it.
About two weeks back, while doing the usual routine on Starfall then I found out More.Starfall. After running thru a week with Yvette on those free page, I decided to sign up a year membership of USD35 with them.
This membership website has all the content you love from regular Starfall.com plus colors, numbers, rebus stories, puzzle games for high-frequency word practice, decodable short vowel books, motion songs, math songs and more! ( Home Membership $35, 3 concurrent users, 1 year – A trick I leant – Do you understand the hidden meaning of 3 concurrent users? Ask me in email or on msn if you can’t get it.)
The website includes an important section dedicated to teachers (“Teacher’s Lounge”) with customizable practice page generators, projectables and other resources.
We are lucky. Yvette doesn’t need us to coach her on speech. She linked up with other descriptive words such as colour, opposite, numbers, etc which she had already come across in our daily conversation as well as book but then I still feel Yvette will benefit from this programme of Starfall. And more over, USD35 is only 40 plus in SGD. It is much cheaper than you get Word World DVD.
So if your kids do benefit from Starfall, perhaps you might want to subscribe to it.
