DLTK's Educational Activities for Kids
Animated Literacy Resources

Animated-Literacy is a program created by Jim Stone to help children learn reading and writing with the use of Alphabet Stories, Songs, Gestures and Coloring Pages.  It's a very cute integrated program (my oldest daughter studied it in Grade 1 and seemed to enjoy it).   For more specific information on the program visit the Animated-Literacy website.

The program is one you must purchase or get through your school, but one request I've received that I felt would be ok to meet was to tie existing craft, coloring, etc ideas found on the site into the Animated-Literacy program -- for example doing Camel crafts and coloring at home while your children are studying the "Crazy Camel" part of the program can help loosely tie at home fun with what the kids are doing in school.
