Read.gov: Online books and resources for literacy & reading for everyone

Read.gov: Online books and resources for literacy & reading for everyone.

Library of Congress and several celebrated children’s authors have put together a really fun reading website.  The resources here are for kids, teens, adults and educators/parents.

The Exquisite corpse adventure was my favorite activity.  Teachers and parents who are reading this over the winter break would do well to introduce their own children to this online treasure.    Plus, if you are traveling to DC during this vacation time, be sure to stop in at the Library of Congress which now features an area just for teens and kids.

Did someone say ‘fieldtrip?’

Online Math Games – Free and for Kids

Online Math Games – Free and for Kids.

You’ll find really fun games here for various levels of basic operations (+,-,/,*) and the ability to report scores to the teacher.  There is a pacman like mixed operation game.  The player has to eat a question mark that gives the answer to which ‘ghost’ he might destroy.  Hey, if people weren’t watching me, I’d still be playing. 🙂
