My father is giving my daughter (age 6) his old laptop and he was wanting to know what I want loaded on it for her. Anyone has any suggestions of stuff that should be loaded onto the computer of a 6 year old TAG girl?
Thanks!!

Kid Pix is fun. It's a drawing program that kids love. Kid Pix 4 is the newest version.

Tux Paint free online similar to KidPix and Photostory also free. With that programme she can make up stories using photos you or her take. My kids love it.
There are also so many free sites. ABC's Count Us in. Great maths games. Save them as favourites.

If he can find a program which teaches her how to type, it would be very good for her. Sorry, I don't have a specific program to recommend except to avoid Type to Learn.

I use Zoombinis (there are 3 or 4 different CDs) with my gifted students in grades 3 to 6 (US). They love them! One is logic based, another is science based. My own children have been playing them since about age 6, but my 6th graders enjoy them as well!
