What is StarFall Curriculum?
Starfall is a Web site that uses phonics and phonemic awareness practice to support young children who are learning to read, including letter recognition, applying letter sounds to words, basic vocabulary, and building fluency and comprehension. Developed and launched in 2002 by a team of teachers, the free Web site offers a few limited activities, and includes various sing-along and historical folk songs, as well as customizable teacher resources like practice worksheets.
Starfall has been teaching children to read with phonics for well over a decade. The systematic approach, in conjunction with audiovisual interactivity, is perfect for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, special education, home school, and English language development (ELD, ELL, ESL). Starfall is an educational alternative to other entertainment choices for children.
