Starfall is a educational reading site. The site is filled with various activities and books to read. It is a great way to teach and reinforce reading while using technology. It has very basic work with the alphabet and letters then slowly works into short vowels, vowel combinations and so forth. Definitely suitable for K - 2 and for early grade 3. It also has seasonal books and activities like pumpkin, turkey, groundhog and lots of others. The download center is filled with free printable worksheets and activities that you can download and print at your convenience.
I have used this site a lot when teaching K, 1, 2 and have found kids to enjoy it. I have seen students make connections between what we are doing in class and having fun on the computer.
