Homeschool Supplements on CD-ROM
When I started homeschooling, my kids I wanted to make it as much fun as possible. Of course, I wanted them to learn at the same time. Here are some of our favorite CD Rom educational Supplements:
Reader Rabbit has programs for toddlers through 2nd grade. My kids used Reader Rabbit long before we even considered homeschooling. As young as 18 months old, my kids used the toddler program. It began by teaching mouse and early keyboard skills, and moved on to letters and numbers. Before long, they were learning phonics. We continued using Reader Rabbit programs after we began homeschooling. The children always thought they were playing. Learning never even entered their minds, only it did.
Clue finders are a more grown up version of Reader Rabbit. The goal of the clue finders CD ROMs is to solve a mystery (similar to a Scooby Doo Mystery) by solving a series of math, logic, grammar, geography, and science questions. While the children play the game, the program records their progress. The parent can then view how much the children have learned in a separate readout. There are versions for grade 3 through middle school.
Carmen Sandiego is created by the Learning Company, the same people who made Reader Rabbit and Clue finders. It is patterned after the 1980's cartoon and game show that teaches students geography. This is for grade 3 through middle school.
Oregon Trail has kids to read maps and make decisions as they virtually follow the original Oregon Trail that mapped out the United States. While using this program students learn Geography, US History, Social Studies, critical thinking, managing budget, and more. This game is also available for grade 3 through middle school.
Zoombinis teaches your child how to think instead of what to think. The program consists of 12 thinking games, each with four levels. The goal is to take the zoombinis characters through dangerous paths to reach their destination. Students learn to analyze data, from hypothesis, recognize patterns, and more while solving puzzles in this game. This game recommended for ages 8 and up.
Typing Instruction (kids and adult programs), I do not have a favorite typing program because they change so quickly as new technology is made. Still, I feel a typing CD-ROM program is invaluable. I personally found typing to be laborious and painful ordeal. Therefore, I purchased typing games for my children who picked up typing skills without experiencing any of the pain I remember. They also learned to type at a much younger age than I did.
