Starfall Starfall.com opened in September of 2002 as a free public service and has been teaching children to read with phonics ever since. Our systematic approach, in conjunction with phonemic awareness practice, is perfect for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, special education, homeschool, and English language development (ELD, ELL, ESL). Starfall is an educational alternative to other entertainment choices for children.

In May of 2009, we released the Starfall Kindergarten Reading and Language Arts Curriculum and in June 2013 the Starfall Pre-K Curriculum. Our methodology motivates children in an atmosphere of imagination and play. The teacher-guided and child-directed nature of our curriculum products ensure English language learners and struggling readers learn alongside their peers. Please visit The Starfall Store.
