Reviews from teachers:
I am an early childhood special education teacher and I just stumbled upon your website while doing some work for a graduate course I am taking about excellent online resources for the classroom and I wanted to let you know that you have created some amazing activities. My 3-5 year old students are going to love learning to count, finding shapes, matching colors, and even finding farm animals with your fun activities. They have bright, kid-friendly graphics and excellent voice narration. Keep up the good work and I plan on visiting your site as often as I can in my classroom! Thanks again!"
"I am a computer teacher for pre-k - 8th grade and I love the pre- school animals movies/games/create/flashcards! My kindergarden and 1st grade classes have been using them to learn about different habitats.
The new movie is great! In all the movies I like that the voice is slow and clear (I teach english language learners) and that there are simple facts about the animals. The jungle movie is especially full of information. I also like that there is a bit about conservation - we try to put some type of conservation into the subjects.

"I just found your website by accident, and I love it! I can’t wait for my 4 yr old to try it out tomorrow. He’s going to love it.
From "Kids on the Computer" blog:
"Sheppardsoftware.com is full of educational games and learning activities. There's a special section just for preschoolers and kindergardeners that is fun without being too busy and overstimulating."
From " K-8 EdTech resources" blog (Ncs-tech):
"This site is appealing to me due to its vast collection of original Flash based interactives, like “Create an Animal Ocean”, that are, incidentally, absolutely perfect for interactive white boards (IWBs). Voice prompts guide the user through each step, making it suitable for the youngest learners to use these tools on their own. Sound effects and voiceovers are pleasing and absolutely first-rate."
" Just wanted to say I continue to be impressed with these activities. The voice directions are very pleasant and carefully worded." - John Padula
"Love your movies! wish I had found them sooner. Was looking for a farm video for a 4-year-old grandson with a tentative diagnosis of Asbergers, and this really caught his attention, especially the 'graduation' to the interactive game. Videos are his comfort zone, and his family lives next door , so it's nice for me to have such a good resource
"I liked the voice of the narrator, the pace, and the tactful pushes about saving wildlife and forests. I also enjoyed the obvious sense of humor. " --Eleanor Shanley
