Learning/Reading Websites For Kids

A week ago we went to Mica's school for a book swap. They also went over a lot with parents. One of the things is websites to refer to for learning/reading.

Websites for Children:

Starfall: This one is great for preschool all the way up to 2nd grade. Kids that are just learning their letter sounds will gain a lot from this website!

Isaak's in the ABCs section, while Mica's in the Learn to Read and It's Fun to Read ones. They have games that fit their level. Mica's learning how to place the sound of the letter in the context of the word. I'm Reading has Comic Books, Greek Myths, Fables and more!

KS1 Bitesize: This one is for both literary as well as math skills.

Math includes: Add, Subtract, Multiply and Divide. It also includes Time, Money and more.
Literacy includes: Phonics, Spelling, Rhyming, Sentence Structure and more.

Jump Start: This one you do have to register for. You can opt out anytime. It is free. Their games are super fun and of course learning based.

Form Swift - Common Core Lesson Plans: This one is great for coming up with Math Science English lesson plans. I'm always working on lesson plans for my kids during the summer. It's free. You can print out lesson plans in PDF format.

Sheppard Software: This has all kind of learning games for all ages.

Story Place: Has online books.

abcya: Has all kinds of learning apps. Something I'm totally not into yet, but probably should be. You get to pick their grade level, which is great! Oh and the illustrations I love!

Literacy CyberSpace: Has a ton of sites to go to for the age level of your child. This one goes all the way up to High School! If you're looking for a site for your child to go to over the summer, this is the one!

Storyline Online: Has books for younger kids that celebs read. Yes Betty White reads Dirty Harry. I assure you it's not dirty in an adult way! This site is strictly for kids!

Story Starter: This is put on by Scholastic. It has a roulette wheel and picks topics for kids to write about. This is great for older elementary; for when they want to write a story, but don't know where to start.

Kabongo: This is another one you do have to register for. It is free. They do not email you like crazy. I know because I have an account. Mica loves playing it!

Tutoo: This is site that makes it simple for students to search for all the tutors within their local area. They are currently used by thousands of tutors and students daily and feel our service is helpful and may potentially be a useful resource for your site readers.
