    I came across the files I used when I taught preschool & K and thought some of our homeschool parents could use these for extra pratice & goodies...

    Beginning letters, numbers, colors & shapes:

    http://www.dltk-kids.com/

    Good for 2-4 year olds who are just learning basics, letter and number tracers, early social studies.

    http://www.janbrett.com/index.html

    A children's author, Jan Brett, has loads of goodies that go with her books, as well as holiday things. A favorite here is the wall mural pages that let several kids or a whole family work on the mural together (instead of butcher paper buy a few rolls of cheap wrapping paper at the 99 cent store and use the white side).

    http://www.edhelper.com/

    There's alot that's free here, but for only $20/year you can access everything on the site, well worth it for things like math and social studies.

    http://www.starfall.com/

    The best phonics site, I can't say enough good about it, kids love it beyond belief, teachers love it, it's all free, there's mini copies of thier books to print, it's fab.

    http://www.time4learning.com/

    $16/ month Once starfall has been mastered this site does the next steps, it covers math, reading, history, & science in 15 minute mini lessons, enjoyable and good for kids who need extra pratice (or mommies who need 15 mins of byc time).

    Wow! Thanks! Some of them I had seen but a lot of them were new to me. [​IMG]

    I agree about Starfall, I can't recommend it enough.
