Between the lines early literacy

PBS LearningMedia hosts some terrific educational material for children, and its Between the Lions video resources are among the best. There are read-along folktales and fables with a twist, clever song videos of letter sounds, and many more amusing stories and catchy songs to capture kids’ attention. The videos are short, with most ranging from 20 seconds to 6 minutes in length, so it’s easy for children to watch a variety of them—or to re-watch a favorite several times.

Starfall Education

Starfall Education (a nonprofit that focuses on free and low-cost learning resources for children) has created an engaging group of games and activities that range from the ABCs to fables. The stories and poems can be read by the narrator or by your child, with or without assistance. Your child can read the text on the screen and click on a word they need help with.

The Starfall website is free to access and use, and it doesn’t have any ads. However, you will encounter some activities that are grayed-out and can’t be opened. A paid subscription is required to access these activities. For a home membership, it costs $35 per year. There is a wide range of resources that can be enjoyed completely for free, though!
