http://www.starfall.com/  (Starfall.com opened in September of 2002 as a free public service to teach children to read with phonics. Their systematic phonics approach, in conjunction with phonemic awareness practice, is perfect for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, special education, homeschool, and English language development (ELD, ELL, ESL).)

www.freerice.com (Two critical skills for elementary students to learn are basic math and vocabulary. My second of three excellent educational websites for elementary students is Freerice.com. Freerice.com quizzes students in subjects such as vocabulary, basic math, multiplication, and foreign languages. Every time a student gets a question right on Freerice.com 10 grains of rice get donated to the United Nation’s World Food Program by corporations such as Citi Group.)

http://www.abcya.com/ (ABCya.com is the leader in free educational kids computer games and activities for elementary students to learn on the web. All children’s educational computer activities were created or approved by certified school teachers. All educational games are free and are modeled from primary grade lessons and enhanced to provide an interactive way for children to learn.)

http://wonderopolis.org/ (Welcome to Wonderopolis®, a place where natural curiosity and imagination lead to exploration and discovery in learners of all ages. Brought to life by the National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL), our Wonders of the Day® will help you find learning moments in everyday life—ones that fit in with dinner preparations, carpool responsibilities, a stolen moment between breakfast and the bus, or within school curriculum and education programs.)

http://en.childrenslibrary.org/ (Multicultural digital library created by the International Children’s Library. Students can read books online in 19 different languages from dozens of different countries. Children and teachers can search for books by age level, topic, color of cover, length, award winners, and recently added. Books are visually appealing to early elementary students and children can begin reading any story immediately. All text and pictures can be enlarged.)

princesseshttp://www.clpgh.org/kids/storymaker/ (Students can create their own digital stories. They can choose their characters, setting, and topic. Children have many opportunities for creativity, as they can change the setting and add details to their stories. Students can preview before they print and share their stories.)

http://www.kerpoof.com/ (Best for second grade and older, Kerpoof allows students to create stories, spell a picture, make a card, and create movies, drawings and pictures. This site offers a teacher tool section which can help create lessons incorporating Kerpoof. Students can save their work as they go, so projects can continue throughout the year.)

http://www.wordle.netand/  and http://www.tagxedo.com/  (Both of these sites offer interactive word clouds. Wordle is more user friendly for early elementary students. Tagxedo offers many more creative outlets (shapes, colors, sizes). Each site is visually stimulating and allows for individual creativity.)

www.khanacademy.org  (A free world-class education for anyone anywhere. Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. We’re a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere.  All of the site’s resources are available to anyone. It doesn’t matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology. Khan Academy’s materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge.)
