Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive May 2006: Fun but eductional websites

It seems like that not too long ago I saw a thread about this very thing. But in searching for it, I can not find it. So can we rehash the subject or somebody help me find the previous thread?

What is your favorite children's educational website? I'm looking for something to keep my 5 yo dd on her toes before she starts Kindergarten this fall. We are going to do something every day that she has decided to call her "smart" time to specifically ready her for school. We are coloring pages and doing books with alphabet stuff and matching and first words. And I couldn't believe it but I found what was my first reader about Dick and Jane and Sally and Spot. I got it at Cracker Barrel of all places. She thinks it's cool cause she is learning to read. But I want to add some computer stuff besides Disney and Nick Jr.

Ideas, ladies?

Starfall.com for phonics
PBSkids.org
fisherprice.com
Barbie.com (less educational but LOTS of fun stuff)
funbrain.com.

Starfall was what I was going to mention for her age. It's an excellent site. Educational and fun. My son loved it even last year after he knew how to read.

There's also a website called Clever Island. We get it through Adelphia, but I think you may have to pay for it if you don't have Adelphia. But it is wonderful, and if you have more than one child, they can sign on and save all of their info seperately. It is a great site. I think worth the money, if you would have to pay for it. May be something to check out, anyhow...
