This website, Learning Games for Kids, has quite a variety of free games and videos covering all subject areas.  The games are fairly simple and easy to play, and focus on basic skills.  They even have keyboarding skill games to help children improve typing skills.

Learning Planet

16 Jun

Well, summer time is here, and I’m on the hunt for some fun, free websites for the kiddos to play/learn on.  Learning Planet has some fun, cute games that are very learning oriented.  There is a subscription area for teachers that can be set up and individualized for students.  I also found a section titled “worksheets” that currently has pdf files for a min-book.

Rockford’s Rock Opera

Rockford’s Rock Opera is an interesting website I stumbled upon.  I have to be honest… it took help from my 7-year-old for me to really understand how great this website is.  I’m not even sure how to describe it.  It is an interactive story.  There is music.  There is a message about extinction and taking care of our planet.  Definitely worth checking out!

Carl’s Corner… Helping Struggling Readers

2 Jun

While taking a class on helping struggling readers, a classmate came upon the website, self titled Carl’s Corner.   This website is a fantastic resource for any teacher, parent, or anyone who works with children with difficulties in some area of learning. I particularly like the section on intervention, but the whole website is worth browsing.  Don’t miss the downloadable booklet on instructional intervention.  This website is so chock full of fantastic information that I still haven’t gone through it all!

Whizzball!!

2 Jun

Discovery Kids has a great little game on their website that encourages creativity, problem solving, and even some simple physics concepts.  Whizzball is an addictive game, fun for children and adults alike!  You can play games that others have created, or create your own and add it to the lineup for others to play.  Best for intermediate ages and up.
