german reading/writing workbooks for kids - recommendations?

My seven year old is going to local Swiss school (2nd grade) and speaks/understands pretty good German. But I want some workbooks at home to improve his reading and writing in German. Anyone have good recommendations for workbooks? It's doesn't have to be "German as a second language". I just want good 1st/2nd grade workbooks for German-speaking kids. I've tried getting recommendations from his teachers but they didn't have any ideas for me.

Also looking for German websites for kids, like the Deutsch equivalent of Starfall.com. I've looked at a lot of German for kids websites and haven't found anything too helpful.

Wasn't sure if this post should go under Families or Language. Sorry if I put it in the wrong place.

- Tanya

Hi there

I don't have any specific recommendations but I have noticed that there is quite a wide selection of workbooks in the Pestalozzi libraries - perhaps you could just try a few different books and see which ones you like.

My son also got a DVD Rom at the beginning of the year from his school - perhaps this only starts in the 4th klasse - it's called KITS für Kids and there is a website to go along with it.

I am German and you could start with:
Duden - Basiswissen Grundschule Deutsch: Nachschlagen und üben. Klasse 1 bis 4 [Gebundene Ausgabe]
Angelika Neidthardt (Autor)
You can find it on Amazon.de
They deliver it also to Switzerland.

For Internet websites try:

/www.tivi.de/fernsehen/loewenzahn/start/
/www.wdrmaus.de/
www.checkeins.de/spiel_und_spaß.html (Willi wills wissen)

You can do games, see videos etc..

From Willi wills wissen you can also get great books for children (take a look on Amazon.de).
I am working with children and so I can let you know that these websites are great and safe!
