I'm always on the lookout for websites for the children to visit, since it's something they love to do, and there are so many activities out there that the children can benefit from using! Here are some of my favorites:
Scholastic's Book Flix This is the only one I'm recommending that requires payment, but you can get a free trial, and it's soooo worth it! Video story books! Classic literature! How can you miss? (They do have some ideas for funding!)
Spelling City Enter your vocabulary list, and let the kids choose from a number of games and activities. Enjoy!
Mem Fox Read Alouds Mem Fox reads her own books. It just adds an extra thrill to hear a book read by the actual author! And Mem Fox is fantastic.
I know I've seen more "Author Reads", I just can't remember where they are! If you know, please let me know!
National Library of Virtual Manipulatives I use this all the time to demonstrate math activities, but I also let the children have a go. It's the next best thing to base ten blocks, and it's on the computer, so they love it!
The next two are ones I can't wait to try, after finding them on the Teaching Blog Addict's linky party!
Xtramath Sign up your class, and they can mark their own growth on math facts. They can even practice on their home computers! It comes highly recommended!
Elementary Kids Sites Wow, there are tons of sites here for every elementary grade and every elementary subject. I can't wait to check these out!
