    I love Starfall.com for my kids. However I have one student who is reading above this level. Do you know of another website for more advanced readers that is free?

    I noticed that you haven't had any responses to this post. I don't have any websites that would help. Everything our school uses requires site licenses. However, I am thinking, if all the features of Starfall.com are too easy for this child, perhaps you can go to an upper grade level at your site to ask for suggestions. We use accelerated reader at our school, so when I had a student that was reading really well last year, I assessed his reading level. He was reading at grade level 3.7 in Kindergarten! After that, I went to the 3rd grade teachers, and they helped me find things to challenge this boy. He still preferred Starfall, because it helped him to learn how to use the computer and helped him work the mouse. He didn't have one at home, so the exposure helped him. Hope this helps!

    In addition, you can use Tumblebooks free through the NY Public Library's website. Tumblebooks is a site that has audio books, it shows the kids the illustrations and has the words and the kids hear the words as they are highlighted on the screen. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Tumblebooks.

    To get there, go to http://www.nypl.org then along the right side, click on "NYPL for Kids". From there, click the button that says "Tumblebooks". Happy reading! :D
