Spelling City

Kerpoof!  Really neat website with fun activities like "spell a story," "write a story" and even "make a movie".  You can learn how to layer animation, to settings, add characters, dialogue and music.

Learner.org  MANY standards-based investigations and activities to try out.  Some that would be great to try are: Elements of a Story (grades 2-5), Spelling Bee (all grades).  There are also more activities for middle-schoolers and high-school students, but try out the  US Map Quiz, Geometry or Rock Cycle lessons and see how far you get!

Another great website! abcya

Click here for a great K-5 website with math, reading, spelling and typing skills games. ABC Ya

Games are listed by grade-level.  I recommend sitting down next to your child and helping him pick out games to practice skills you want him  to work on.  All of the students could use typing skills to speed up their learning with technology.  But as you probably know, it is easy to "cheat" and look at the keyboard.  Help motivate your child by trying out the games along side them.  See who can get the best score!!  You might surprise yourself, there are some pretty tricky activities--but fun!
