Dixon Public Library is excited to announce the purchase of two Early Literacy Stations™ (ELS), an engaging, educational resource loaded with more than 70 award-winning software titles, and more than 4,000 learning activities for kids ages 2-8. The ELS offers children a safe, standalone computer not connected to the Internet that is age-appropriate, interactive, and academically relevant for early literacy skills. It is designed to support school readiness and early education while making learning exciting and fun.

The learning applications on the ELS are STREAM-aligned and span all curriculum areas: reading, language arts, math, science, social studies, writing, graphic arts, typing, music, and more. The content is closely-aligned with school curriculum and features a host of administrative controls, including timed sessions and usage tracking.

Here’s a sample of the award-winning programs included on AWE Learning’s Early Literacy Station:

· La Casa de Dora

· SpongeBob SquarePants Typing

· Kid Pix 3D

· Math Doodles

· Sesame Street

· Know Your USA

· Fingertapps Sky Writer

· Bailey’s Book House

· Wanderful ebooks

· Speakaboos interactive storybooks

· World of Goo

The ELS has an imaginative interface that encourages exploration by readers and pre-readers alike. Since it is a self-contained computer, the need for adult intervention and technical support is greatly minimized.

“The Early Literacy Station is an invaluable resource for our toddlers to 5th grade students,” says Jim Tinder, Youth Services Librarian. “The kids are having fun, and many times they don’t know they are learning!” We invite the young learners and the parents & guardians of Dixon to visit the Library and explore all the interactive stories, games, and adventures that are included in the Early Literacy Station. For additional information, contact the library at 707-678-5447.
