Awesome webiste for 4-year-old reader!
My 4-year-old asked for a website she could play on like her big sister, who is 8, so I looked through Common Sense Media's suggestions and tried Starfall. Boy am I glad I did! My four-year-old reads at a 1st grade level, but she could have definitely used this a few years ago because there is a lot on letter recognition, shapes, colors, etc. It's terrific for her age now, though, too; there are games for making words, making sentences, free learning books; videos that teach about vowels and consonants, and more. There is also a daily calendar to help kids learn dates; special things for holidays (such as make your own valentines where kids choose the sentences on the valentines); activities for learning time and other math items; a music section to learn classical composers; and much more. All of the above is FREE, too! I imagine I'll but the yearly membership if she continues liking this site; it's only $35 and seems like a steal. I am very pleased with this site. An added bonus is that my daughter learned how to use a mouse in a few minutes because of the way some of the word problems are set up. Big thumbs up for Starfall.com! I wrote 2 years+ as a good age but at that age, I would keep screen time super-low, maybe 5 minutes a few times a week. At this point, I will have my daughter use this site M-F for 10 minutes at a time.
