Educational Resources for Kids

I would like to store and share some of my compilation of useful educational links for kids that I’ve used.  For sure your kids & students would also enjoy it.

You can’t control kids to love games.  Therefore, they shouldn’t be deprived of playing games, but should serve as a challenge for us adults to continuously research/study/find & create/develop educational games, activities, clips suited to the needs of the kids. With the advent of the internet, anything that we want to know is just a click away.  Now, it just depends on our innate creativity on how we can motivate the kids to learn the necessary information that they need to make learning more fun & exciting.

How I wish I have enough resources & power to make a lot more interesting, educational sites for kids in different languages that will be beneficial to all the kids around the globe.  For sure few years from now, there will be abundant resources and the problem will be how to evaluate resources online to assure that the resources available are suited to the learning needs of the students.

Let me start with the TOP 5 INTERESTING EDUCATIONAL SITES FOR KIDS FOR ME:

1. http://www.brainpop.com/ – Simplified lessons for kids through clips.  Parents should be educators and should help them simplify lessons that are vague and confusing.  Before, all the clips were free, but now, I’m sorry to tell that it already has subscription fee.  Since they work hard to provide quality clips, it’s their prerogative and they deserve to earn from it.

2. http://www.jumpstart.com/ – My students & son love the songs & games on their CDs

3. http://www.enchantedlearning.com & http://www.allfreecrafts.com – Interesting, simple & easy arts & crafts for kids

4. http://www.thinkingfountain.orghttp://www.miamisci.org – Interesting science experiments.

5. http://www.howstuffworks.com/ – Interesting articles on how stuff works.  Quite boring for kids but very useful for educators/parents so they can explain how stuff works clearly.
