Seattle Public Library Recommended Reading List
Yes, reading outsides or on a boat or near the campfire is fun, but using technology (computer, iPad, tablet, smart phone) can also enrich the reading experience. Below is a list of my five top reading Internet site that will sharpen reading skills with fun stories and games. (Like any book or movie, it's important to preview before introducing to your child. It makes a difference when you know what's coming!)
1. Starfall - I love this site, my daughter and I enjoy sharing this experience together. Check out More Star Fall for complete stories and activities. Here there is also math enrichment games. This site requires a small fee to use.
2. Gamegoo - Kids love the excitement of this site.
3. Childtopia- Busy site, but some great gems!
4. Super Why - Another favorite of my daughter. Many interactive learning games with catchy tunes!
5. Book Adventure - This data base of 7,000 books will motivate kids to read and take a quiz! Lots of prizes can be won with points earned from correct quiz answers. Check out the "Book Finder" and "Make a list" feature - way too cool for kids to take charge of the reading.
