A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that since the site uses British spelling, kids may be a little confused by some of the words ("curb" vs. "kerb"). Also, the sentences are often read out loud and the British accents may sound unfamiliar at first. No ads.
Is It Any Good?
The text is on this site is written for teachers and parents, not kids -- they'll need an adult on hand to explain (or bypass) terms like "phoneme" and "CVC" (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) and walk them through game instructions. The games themselves are age-appropriate, creative, and fun, and there's an excellent variety of activity types. Printable resources encourage kids to continue the lessons offline.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
