The Best Educational Websites for Kids…

October 13, 2010

We need to get out of our same websites that I set up for the adorables to play on.  No worries, I’ve included them at the bottom, but through this I’ve found some terrific FREE winners!

I bet you have some others too…

1.  Starfall.com – an excellent place for phonics.  This is a gem, folks.

2. ABCYA.COM – a wealth of math and phonics games organized by grade level.  This is another gem, folks.  Perhaps a bigger gem – I’ll let you decide.

3. The Old Farmer’s Almanac 4 Kids.com – calendar, weather, sky watch, history, birthdays, and puzzles.

4. Sesame Street.org – phonics, games, and fun characters.

5.  Chuggington.com – games, videos, and activities (what you’d expect), but the graphics are quite bewitching.

6. ZiggityZoom.com – more games, activities, educational worksheets, crafts.

7. NICKJR.COM – Lots of free games and activities for kids!  This is our standby, but I must admit, it’s a good one.

8.  Playhousedisney.com – Our 2nd standbuy, but there are too many ways for my adorables to click off and get themselves into Disney oblivion.

I think of all of these listed, Starfall.com and ABCYA.COM provide the most educational bang. Now just to get the adorables excited to switch over…

Where do your adorables spend their time?

    I’m so embarrassed I didn’t know about this site – thanks SO much for bringing it to my attention! My adorables are pretty huge fans of Dinosaur Train, so I’m sure they will love this!

    For older kids interested in science a friend of mine just recommended this site. It has been GREAT for my kid that is interested in the elements/science in general.

    That is the precise blog for anybody who desires to search out out about this topic. You realize a lot its virtually hard to argue with you (not that I truly would need…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a brand new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, simply nice!
