™ at the Millington Arbela District Library. The Early Literacy Station (ELS
) is a dynamic, digital learning solution, touch screen computer. It is intended for use by children aged two to eight. It requires no Internet connection so it is safe and secure.
It features more than 60 educational software programs that have been designed to teach skills in math, reading, logic and other areas. The educational titles are displayed using engaging graphics and intuitive menus. The touch screen works well for little hands that cannot use a mouse.
In addition to favorites like Dora the Explorer and World of Goo, the content is an eclectic mix. The Early Literacy Station features a lot of recently developed gems including: Speakaboos e-books, Math Doodles, Kid Pix 3D, Know Your World, Volcanic Panic, Getting Ready for Kindergarten, Britannica Learning Suite, SpongeBob SquarePants Typing, and Science Express.
In the year since it was donated by the Millington Lions Club, the ELS has proven to be very popular with both children and their parents. It can be found in the Southeast corner of the library’s Children’s Area.
