Website: Parts of the Body

Just throwing out a quick post before running to Costco ... oh, how I love going to Costco with a toddler in tow!

I searched high and low for interactive websites for toddlers that reinforce or provide practice with Parts of the Body. I didn't find a lot of options, but the one site I did find, I really like. While my toddler is no where near ready to mouse around a website, this is an activity we did together - she pointed and I moused.



Features I love:

  • Starfall is a website that makes learning to read fun - how can you beat that?
  • The visual image of the girl/boy is very clear and cute.
  • The auditory feedback is really great. Natalie enjoyed the tune so much she danced right along.
  • As a teacher, I really appreciate the visual cubes meant for each word/letter.
  • I like having the opportunity to share a computer-based activity with my toddler :)

Awesome! I just checked it out and it looks really neat. A little young for my 18 month old but I am going to give it a whirl tomorrow anyway. :)
