As parents, both Dave & I are particularly careful about what activities our children do online. It is always good to find a program that maintains our personal standards, is full of educational material & that the children are eager to use. Recently we've been given the opportunity to review such a program: Orphs of the Woodlands (The Treasure of the High Tower) by Star Toaster.
One of my favourite parts of the program are the many vocabulary words which are highlighted within the pages of the story. The student is able to scroll over the word & a definition for the word will be displayed. I feel this adds an additional element to the story that allows the student to fully understand the words used. It also enables the storyteller to use words which are above the vocabulary level of that age of student.
