They play games like Hangmouse, Letterfall, Word-O-Rama, and Speedy Speller on our interactive whiteboard during literacy centers. The games can be specialized with our weekly word lists and differentiated for individual students. http://www.spellingcity.com Another great site is JogNog. JogNog gives my students the opportunity to create virtual cities and compete against one another in a test preparation type format. They have so much fun on the site. http://www.jognog.com Sign in to vote! Posted 7/15/2012 10:26am Cara4th grade NBCT As a disclaimer, my students use this site in my classroom. I was so impressed that I shared it through social media platforms. Now, I have the opportunity to work with them part-time after school in the area of social media promotions. Sign in to vote!

Posted 4/23/2013 9:26am susan offenLiteracy Graduate Student I would highly recommend the following online programs for early elementary students: www.razkids.com which allows student to read books and answer reading comprehension questions about the story. K-1st grade students can earn points and purchase(pretend) items for their spaceship. This motivates them to read even more. 2nd grade level does not do this but it is still very motivating. Teachers and parents can communicate through this program as well. I would also highly recommend www.xtramath.com. This program helps young children practice basic math problems. It times the students which assists them in answering the math problems quickly so they can move on to the next level. Knowing the answers becomes automatic. The keys are a little space out for their little hands so once you get them adjusted to the keyboard they will be ready to go. I would recommend www.starfall.com which teaches children to read with phonics. Lastly, I would recommend www.coolmath-games.com. This site also has reading and spelling, geography, science, puzzles and so on. I would personally recommend the game, Mathlines 10! I hope this helps. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.
