Educational Sites

Here is a list of some of my favorite sites.

I can't say enough about this site. It is a great tool to use in the classroom for independent work, taking running records, help with struggling readers, etc.  Note: You do need a subscription for this, but it is worth it!

This one needs a subscription.  However, once you have it, there are tons of books on here that are read to the students.  There are short quizes accompanied with it along with activities throughout the site.

They have stories, videos, printables, and games available for many of the student's favorite characters.

A tride and true site that helps with phonemic awareness.

PBS Kids
All of the great PBS shows are on here with educational games and activities.
This is a newer site that I have found.  It is chock full of great games, activities and videos for all levels.

Mensa For Kids
Fun website that provides higher level thinking activities for kids. (2nd grade link)
This site covers activities from K-6.  For 2nd grade there are a ton of games I use with my students including Word Builder, Fishy Fractions, Punctuation Paintball.  It says you need to be a member at times, but there is usually a free version that you can click on.

Wacky Web Tales
A web version of mad libs. It's geared for grades 3 and up, but I use it with my second graders.

Spell City
Students can input their spelling list for the week and then can play games using those words.

Another great site with educational games for math and language arts.  The great thing about this one is that it is broken down by grade level!

An oldie but a goodie.  My students always love playing on the math and reading games here.


I will continue to add to the list as the year goes on.
