Kindergarten Site Teaches Basics of Books
- By Michelle Rutledge
A new online language arts course has been launched by e-Learning for Kids, a non-profit organization providing free online educational games for children ages 5 to 12, and ProtonMedia, a developer of communications and courseware solutions. The course, titled "About Printed Books," is the newest of the more than 80 courses available on the organization's website.
The course is designed to use interactive illustration and animation to teach the basic components of a printed book. According to e-Learning for Kids, the course teaches children "key concepts such as the front and back covers, how to read words from left to right and top to bottom, and how words combine to make sentences."
Other course subjects offered from the organization include:
- English language;
- Computer skills; and
- Health and life skills.
A CD of the courses is available for educators on the organization's website.
