Totally go for ABCmouse. They have some cute games and different stuff. DS can't use a mouse that well and their mouse tutorial game is helping him.

My daughter is 6 and is struggling with reading. Is this something you think could help her?

I thought Starfall was free :?

Starfall will too. What is she struggling with? You could try zoo phonics. That's what we used for dd and they used it in K too.

I don't know, I haven't thoroughly checked on either, they were both just things I'd heard about. :D It'd be nice if it were free though. Off to investigate!

Oh, I see. Starfall is free, but only includes reading. ABCmouse is for pay but provides wholistic curriculum.

Yeah. You can use funbrain for math if you don't wanna buy anything just yet.

Going off my daughters kindergarten report card, these are the areas she is struggling at in reading:



Letter sounds
Double letter sounds
Reading sight words
Nonsense Word Fluency-Correct letter sounds

You really should look into zoo phonics. It is so worth it. The homeschool kit is reasonably priced. It teaches all those areas. I bet she could be caught up by first grade if you didit now. Starfall also has games that will help with sounding words out.
