Great Online Resource

I've just spent the last four hours researching the subjects of reading, writing, spelling, phonics and other things in that area and just came across this gem:

There are some fun activities on this site for young children, and it is very user friendly. Next week, I plan to have my oldest (4 1/4) start on this alphabet activity. This will be a very fun learning opportunity. I LOVE the internet! The activities I clicked on seem to be set up well for very young children to use. Of course, we have yet to try it with a child, but my guess is that someone put a great deal of thought and effort into this resource. Did I mention it is well-done? I am pleasantly surprised to find a website that is not only a great teaching accessory, but is nice-looking and devoid of "from-the-last-century" layout, artwork and links. (My research on almost any subject brings me to painfully outdated places. Why must so much good information be on archaic and horribly-done websites?) This is a breath of fresh air. Check it out!
