Okay! I admit... I absolutely do not like to have my little one the computer nor in front of the television. However, I do recognize that this is the technology age and so forth. With that, he earns *time* for such things! That said!! I was asked to look at ABC Mouse. I found it to be resourceful, fun, and educational for the little ones. Mind you - I don't recommend this site nor any website to be the ONLY resource for lessons (Personal opinion!) Moving on! ABC Mouse has a promotion going on right now - a month free! Check it out!
Took my son to see the fun MOUSE at Barnes and Noble!! He had such a wonderful time :) I recommend checking out your local B&N because sometimes they have guest speakers, fun characters out of story books, and other activities things going on :) With that - check out 123homeschool4me it has a bunch of *FREE* mouse activities that go along with the story.

Try it! It has been proven time and time again and one that I have used personally within and out of the classroom over and over again.
