Language Arts

http://www.eduplace.com/kids/ The site is filled with games for example: Wacky Web Tales, the students answers questions such as typing in a noun, a body part, a present tense verb and once all of those are filled in the computer makes a story useing your answers. Excellent for help with reading and writing skills. There is also Fake-out which uses differnet obscure words and definitions and Power Proofreader where students must find corrections in written work. These games are nice because they work on specific grade level and abilities. Many more resources on this site so check it out. School Books and Science games are not very exciting and a little confusing for my grade 3 focus. The only problem with this site is it takes a while to load so your constantly waiting. So if you have crazy kids you might just want to leave this as an enrichment site and not tackle this altogether as a class. Grade 3 Language Arts and more specifically story telling and retelling, self assessment, and listening.
