Starfall.com opened in September of 2002 as a free public service to teach children to read with phonics. Our systematic phonics approach, in conjunction with phonemic awareness practice, is perfect for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, special education, homeschool, and English language development (ELD, ELL, ESL). Starfall is an educational alternative to other entertainment choices for children.
In May of 2009, we released the Starfall Kindergarten Reading and Language Arts Curriculum. Our method of instruction motivates children in an atmosphere of imagination and enthusiasm, provides opportunities for child-directed instruction, and supports English language learners and struggling readers learning alongside their peers. Please visit The Starfall Store for other low-cost phonics journals and books paralleling this website.

Dance Mat Typing is an introduction to touch typing. Each of the 4 levels are divided into 3 stages. Begin at Level 1 and build up your skills gradually through to Level 4.
Stage 1 introduces the home row, and stages 2 - 12 will:
Recap the previous lesson
Introduce new letters typed with the left and right hands
Practice all previously learnt letters
Reward the typist with a mini song and dance
Why learn to touch type?
When you can do it well, touch typing is the fastest way to write. Many people can soon learn to touch type faster than they can write with a pen. The important things to remember are:
Use the correct fingers
There's no need to rush!
Always rest your wrists on the desk
You should take a rest, and shake your hands and arms to relax your muscles if you get tired
It's important not to look at your hands when you are learning to type. The best way to ensure that you don't look at your hands is to cover them up - you can make a simple box out of cardboard or wood to cover both the keys and your hands
You will need headphones or speakers to enjoy the song and dance in each game. The games use the Flash plug-in - if your computer doesn't have Flash, or you can play the alternative interactive versions available at each stage.

Wind in my hair.
Breeze on my skin.
I love the park where the air is thin.
I look up at the sky
and dream I could flutter and fly.
But the park is where everyone needs to be
to be playful and happy.
