Top Ten List

 

1.   Edhelper.com

a.    http://www.edhelper.com/

b.   This website is mainly for educators, however, parents could use it too.  The website is full of different worksheets.  The worksheets are all printables, some are free and others you need to have a subscription for.  I feel that it is 100% worth it to subscribe to the website!

2.   MrNussbaum

a.    http://www.mrnussbaum.com/

b.   Mr. Nussbaum is a website that includes games on all subject areas.  For each game, it provides the skill that game will touch on, along with the object of the game or exercise.  The website is also broken down into sections for the different grade levels children may be on.  I think this is good, because a child may be on a certain grade level and not where their age may be.  There is even a site map to help direct an adult or child around the site.

3.   BrainPOP

b.   Brain POP is an awesome website.  It has potential to be very educational and fun for children as long as teachers or parents are willing to subscribe to the website. 

4.   CoolMath

a.    http://www.coolmath.com/

b.   Cool Math is website that touches on many different aspects of math.  This website has a lot going on.  It also includes links to other websites for other subjects.  The website itself has so many different math topics to choose from.  You can play games, practice different types of math facts.  You can focus on one content area in math or a skill.  I enjoyed this website, but it takes many visits to see it all.

5.   Kids Know It Network

a.    http://www.kidsknowit.com/

b.   Kids Know it Network is a very fun filled website for children.  I had a ball exploring the website and all the games it includes.  The website has games or informational exercises on all subjects.  The website is based around what the children are interested in.  Something consistently seen on the homepage is “What would you like to learn about?” 

6.   Storyline Online

a.    http://www.storylineonline.net/

b.   Storyline Online is a website for children to have stories read to them interactively by members of the Screen Actors Guild.  The children can read a long with the story also.  I would have loved to have something like this back when I was a child.  Once the stories are read to the children, there are activities to complete.  This website is really neat!
