Starfall Alphabet and Phonics

One of the great finds by Angela (Ella's Nanna from Australia) is the Starfall site which very effectively engages kids in learnig about letter sounds and words. Ella often turns these games into physical play along as she sings and dances with the characters in the lesson. Definitely our favorite kids online learning site!

The Wiggles

One of the great Australian exports, the Wiggles are best in their live performances which Ella was able to enjoy in 2006, shortly after Ethan was born.
We're sorry to hear that Greg Wiggle has probably retired for good with his health issues that emerged the day before we were to see him in concert!

Peep and the Big Wide World

Sponsored by the US National Science Foundation and narrated by Joan Cussack, 'Peep' is one of our favorite kids shows, teaching science with humor.
