A little website love...

I have been finding a lot of new sites lately that are awesome! Most are related to education, specifically preschool/kindergarten but they are amazing! Great ideas for rainy days or theme units, whatever you may be looking for. So if you are a parent, a teacher or what here are some sites that I would check out!

Mrs. Kilburn's Kiddos - Oh my gosh I found this site yesterday and I am in LOVE. She has sooo many neat ideas and printables. I was looking for some pumpkin activities and wow. I haven't finished checking it all out but she has some awesome links, songs, poems, art projects and more!

Arcademic Skill Builders - This site research based and standard aligned games. I use this when I teach computers and have students work on skills they need work with. But it would be an excellent "at home" site for people who had students struggling with math. I say math, and I know they have language arts games but I have not tried those out yet. Just the math!

Starfall - Starfall is by far my favorite website for learning letters and learning to read for the youngin's! There is so much do. They can click on letters and hear the letter name and sound, words that start with that letter, listen to the alphabet and learn sign language. There are also other options for them as they progress in their letter recognition / reading process!

Typing - Oh man this site cracks me up. I've recently learned the bbc has AWESOME stuff for teachers. This typing program is awesome, it cracks the kids up with the accents and it gets them to practice typing!

Kelly's Kindergarten - Awesome resource of a TON of Kindergarten activities. Center times, letter fun, math and lots more. Wonderful resource!

And of course here are some random sites where I let the kids go and have "free time"
http://pbskids.org/
http://www.funbrain.com/
http://funschool.kaboose.com/
http://abcya.com/
http://coolmath4kids.com/

What are some of your favorite sites? They don't have to be teaching related. But that seems to be all I have time for these days! What favorite sites do you have to play games or goof around?

Confession: I have a Webkinz. i never use it anymore, but 2 years ago I was kind of addicted to some of the games. Don't judge - just try it and I bet you'd be hooked to (even if you won't be, tell me you would so I don't feel like a complete weirdo).

My fave site is probably etsy. But that is dangerous because it's so easy to buy things on a whim!
