I love educating my elementary aged children at home because it give me an opportunity to feel like a child again. Sites like the ones below bring back childhood memories in a new animated technological way. The characters that I used to enjoy on PBS and in storybooks are now brought to life on-line.
I utilize on-line sites as a tool to help educate my children, but please keep in the mind that computerized and animated tools should in no way replace reading paper bound books. Paper bound books help children nuture their imaginations by trying to envision the story in their own minds without the asistance of animation or technology.
Below are some sites that I am using this year with my 4 year old preschooler.
I would love for you to share a link to some of your favorite on-line learning sites.
