Educational Sites

25 09 2008

I wanted to thank everyone for the Birthday wishes!! I was in bed most of the day since I had the stomach flu… yeah great present my kids gave me! It was great to wake up to see all the nice comments from yesterday:-) I can’t wait to see your 80’s hair!! Please don’t be chicken to send it, I mean common, didn’t you see my big head?? ha! If you missed the birthday contest go here, you could win a gift card if you enter!

 

Now I’m on the hunt for educational web sites. If you have a favorite, please put a link to it in the comments.

I stumbled upon a wonderful Alphabet web site called Bembo’s Zoo. The letters turn into animals! Your kids will love it.

Here are a few other great sites for kids:

Starfall

The San Francisco Symphony (SFS) Kid’s Music Lab    

Find a ton of great sites at kids.gov

My son loves Starfall That’s the only one I have ever known of though, so I’m glad you’re doing this, so I can get some more for us to visit together.

I have several posts about this on my blog but my favorite is Brillbaby/Brill Kids Little Reader. It is a wonderful site for teaching children to read, colors, shapes, and ect. I probably have 100 that I look at reguarly so this is so hard for me! I do love that site though.

I am the total science geek. I LOVE fractals. THey occur in nature, sound and math and you can do really cool things with them. I used to work with the 9th graders I taught and combine lessons with the math and band teachers. Here’s a site for kids http://www.coolmath4kids.com/fractals/index.html

I have all kinds of educational sites bookmarked on our other computer, but I’m too lazy to go find them. 🙂 Since our older kids are in school all day now, we rarely use the online sites except for the one that the school asks the kids to use (www.studyisland.com.) This site is really nice because the kids can compete against one another. That sounds weird, but my kids really get a kick out of seeing where they stand in comparison with their friends.

Glad you’re feeling better Amy!
