Raz-Kids - Let's get reading!  This is a site paid for by our school district, which provides your child with books to read at their independent reading level and take quizzes on the books they read.  They can earn stars to create a robot and "buy" other items for a space home. 

Fact Monster - This web site has a ton of information and educational/thinking games for kids to play. We have been using the flash cards found in the math and money section. 

Typtastic Typing - This is a new, fun way to practice our typing skills.

BBC Typing - We have used this site to help us practice our typing skills. 

FunBrain - This site has a few good games. I really like the Mad Libs Junior. It is good practice on what a noun, adjective, and verb are.  

Toy Hall of Fame - Have you ever wondered what the greatest toys are of all time? This website has a list of those toys nominated and voted on as the most popular of all time. Enjoy!
 
Inspire Science - This website goes along with our science curriculum. There is so much to use here.  It is also very new.  I will look into the login for this one.

Reading Level Finder - If you're looking to find out what level a book is, simply type the title in the space and click 'GO'. If your book isn't found, remember to use the five finger bookmark.  

Royal Food Groups -  This web site goes along with a food group unit we do in the spring. 

Arcademic Skill Builders - If you're looking for your child to practice different types of skills ranging from math facts to language arts concepts, this is a fun web site to try.  You play games against the computer or compete against other players.  The site also keeps track of your progress (which is printable).  

Grade Level Skills - This web site really has a lot!  You can  choose any grade level and practice the skills by playing games that coincide with the standards.  There are links to the many different games your child can play.  It's nice because you can really focus on the one area of study pretty easy by using this web site.
