This week I thought I would share some of Big Boy and Little Man's favorite websites. Little Man actually does very little on the computer because he just doesn't have the tolerance to sit still very long. But Big Boy really enjoys "doing school" stuff and fun activities on the computer. He doesn't get a lot of time. Just a bit a few times a week. But I think it adds a bit to his "homeschool/preschool" education and honestly, it gives me a bit of a much-needed break sometimes! So here are some of our favorite sites. We hope you enjoy them too!
Starfall: This fantastic site helps Big Boy learn his letters, sight words, phonics and so much more! This is probably his favorite site and is probably my favorite as well.
Noggin: This is the site that refers to the Noggin channel on cable TV. Noggin claims to be "preschool on TV". Not that I think that preschool can be done on TV. But we tend to prefer this channel, when the boys do watch TV, over anything else. It does not have commercials for junk food, toys or inappropriate content. In fact, it doesn't have commercials at all!! The site is wonderful too as it has games and activities that supplement their favorite shows. They love to color on the printable pictures! Some of the games do a great job of reinforcing positive values and manners as well.
Sesame Street: We've not been on this site too much. It does seem to really offer about the same as the other major sites as Noggin and Disney. Our boys prefer Disney but like this at times as well.
Preschool Express: I love this site for tons of great ideas for activities, crafts, letters, colors, numbers, etc... etc...
No Time For Flash Cards: LOVE LOVE LOVE this site! I have a button on the sidebar that you can go directly to see Allie. As I have said before, she is the McGyver of all things preschool AND creative! It's a SuPeR fun site!
Playhouse Disney: Big Boy really enjoys the games on this site. It does have a lot more commercialization than the others but it is fun and keeps his attention well.
Those are our most-visited sites. How about you? What are your favorite Kid Friendly, preschool sites? Help us discover some new ones! And hop on over this Easter Weekend to Sarah at I Blame My Mother for more Kid Friendly Friday posts!
