It's time for the weekly installment of Fresh Look Fridays. Today's interactive website is an easy-to-navigate, simple yet effect review game designed for K-2, put on by the ever so wonderful folks at PBS Kids.
Fuzzy Lion Ears is designed to have students select the correct letter from a list of options to complete the word.
There are so many cute aspects of this website, but I'll give you my two cents on why it's made my list of recommended interactive sites:
- So. Easy. To. Follow.
- If you press on each letter, it makes the sound of that letter. Great reinforcement for early literacy
- While there's obviously a correct answer, you can select an incorrect letter and get a cute admonishment "No silly. That's not right." It doesn't, however, let you advance until you actual come through with the right answer.
- Fun, colourful and totally age appropriate -- could you really ask for anything more?
So simple, yet so fun. As always, this could easily be utilized as a center activity when put on a SMART Board. Get your speakers turned up and let 3 or 4 little ones work through each stage!
I hope everyone has a great weekend. Hopefully this constant downpour in Calgary will stop soon!
