Developed by Houghton Mifflin, this site contains a number of helpful
online educational, interactive materials for students from kindergarten
to 8th grade. The Web site is divided into three main sections: School
Books, Games, and Brain Power. In School Books, students have the ability
to pick from a number of activities ranging from spelling quizzes,
mathematic skills reviews, and reading activities for grades 1 through 6.
Several of the activity areas here are also available in Spanish. The
Brain Power section contains a number of activities designed to challenge
and hone the analytic and problem-solving abilities of young people. The
questions are geared for students in grades 3 through 8, and an archive
containing the previous three week's questions is available for perusal.
The Games section features four different activities, including Fake Out!
-- where students guess the definition of a word and also have the ability
to submit their own fake definitions. Additionally, Houghton Mifflin has
placed a statement online regarding its commitment to protecting the
privacy of children using the site.
- Wee Ones is the first online
children's magazine dedicated to bringing parents and children together
through reading and family- oriented fun with a safe, fun internet
environment for children ages 3 to 8 as well as a separate web space for
parents to learn, share, and be entertained.
The most important suggestion I would make is to make these activities
on computers/Internet match what you are teaching.
