Where Do I Start?
Free Content For Kids
Millions of children have learned to read at Starfall.com, and your child can, too!
Starfall’s successful learn-to-read activities are based on teachers’ experience and research. Developed and tested in the classroom, the activities follow evidence-based methods recommended by the NICHD National Reading Panel, including explicit instruction in phonemic awareness, systematic phonics instruction, and methods to improve fluency and comprehension.
- Alphabet: Starfall’s ABCs—A perfect starting place for Pre-K and Kindergarten learners!
- Phonics: Learn to Read—Follow Starfall’s sequential phonics series of 15 books with fun vowel-pal characters (Zac the Rat, Peg the Hen, etc.). Encourage your learner to read the books in order.
- Fun!: Fun to Read—Learners build their vocabulary and phonemic awareness with the popular All About Me avatar, phonics magic, rhyming tongue twisters, art, music, and poetry.
- Fluency and Comprehension: I’m Reading!—Scaffolding in both fiction and non-fiction texts helps to reduce reading anxiety and improves comprehension, allowing struggling readers to develop self-confidence.
