     Below I have listed some excellent websites that are educational and developmentally appropriate for Kindergarten children. If you have any questions or if you know any websites that you use that might be helpful to other students and parents, please e-mail me at johnsona@vanlueschool.org.

    http://www.starfall.com/  

    On this website students can practice learning letters and letter sounds. They can also read and interact with short stories based around word families.

    http://abcya.com/

    This is one of my favorite websites to use with the kids. It is full of games that build reading and math skills as well as help students develop basic computer skills.

    http://pbskids.org/

    Many students are already familiar with pbskids.com. The games on this website are fun and age appropriate and they are great for building computer skills.

    I am a huge fan of Dr.Seuss and this website is a great way to experience Dr.Seuss stories and characters in an interactive way
