    Hi all,

    I want to purchase more software for my Pre-K class to improve the technology/computer center in the room.

    We mostly have Jumpstart type programs, which are practice and drill for reading/math/phonics/etc.

    I would love your suggestions for more open-ended programs that don't focus on drilling skills.

    Some suggestions I've already gotten are:
    Kidpix
    Sammy's Science House
    Bailey's Book House

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

    I love Reader Rabbit's program.

    Let's see... I have I SPY and it is pretty fun.

    Thinking Things it pretty neat, too.

    I love any of the LIVING BOOKS CD-roms. Those are really cool!

    I Spy is fun and has a sorting option to make it more challenging. I also love the Clifford games that I have bought from Scholastic - one is phonics skills and one is thinking skills.

    Besides JumpStart, my students love Reader Rabbit and Curious George.

    If you have internet capabilities.... use starfall.com
