The games we play

Jake already is a computer whiz, and many times we can just set him up on one of his sites and let him go. Here are a few of his favorite places to surf:

http://www.britishcouncil.org/kids-songs-traditional.htm

I think this was one of the first sites we found for Jake. It has some classic songs we sang when we were kids, albeit with a British accent. Jake loves his music and always asks for incy spider. It was a good tool to get him to talk.

This site is pretty much how Jake has learned his colors and shapes. We stopped at a Love's convenience store on the highway once and he pointed out the hearts on the building.

Starfall is the best in our book. Jake can identify all of his letters and still loves to go through these,

We haven't gone to this one as much, but we do every once in a while. I wish our printer worked. I would love the coloring pages.

Jake is a matching fool!

A good counting game.

This is a good site I found for speech therapy. Again, a printer would be nice. Remember to make sure they say the words the right way.

Here is another letters page that focuses on the sounds of the letters.

And finally, if you type your name in on this site and listen to the audio sample, you're child might get a kick out of hearing his or her name in the song snippet. Jake loves it.

And now, a picture. Just because. :)

Great resources~I'll have to check them out. Li'l Empress LOVES to color and pretend to do school when the big boys are homeschooling.
