What’s New? Check out the great new links I’ve added to my blog!

Recently I have come across two great new educational sites that I have added to my links. The first is ABCya.com. This teacher-created site has fun, creative learning games for kids in grades K-5 (though many of the games in K-1 are appropriate for pre-K, depending on your child’s skill level). It includes a variety of learning skills in math, reading, building, and holiday themed games, and it includes easy-to-use, mouse-controlled manipulatives. My daughter loves this site and could spend hours on it. There are so many things to do and learn on this site. It is a wonderful, interactive, and free resource to enhance children’s learning.

The second site is clarkness.com. This site provides free stories and books for downloading, printing, or reading online. The stories range in level from Pre-K to end of first grade. They are a great way to practice sight words and fluency. The site also includes books in a variety of subject areas including math, science, and social studies. Check out these two fabulous new sites, as well as other great educational sites, in my links section.

I’ve also added a new page to my blog: My e-books. This page has links to the electronic children’s books I have available through Kindle. These e-books are available on any Kindle or Kindle app. Kindle apps are free to download on any PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry or Windows Phone 7. E-books are a great way to read with your child. They are inexpensive, convenient, and a fun way to help your child learn while playing with technology.

    Thanks Amanda! My daughter loves the ABCya site. It has some really cute games on it. And I’m so glad your son loves reading my e-books! Thanks for the positive feedback! Can I ask a favor? If you get a chance, can you leave feedback for the books on Amazon? Oh, and how did you end up doing in the RD contest? Looks like you had tons of votes. That is great.

    Thanks for the feedback! I try to update the website section whenever I come across new sites that I think are great. If anyone knows of others not listed, I’d love to hear about them. My daughter can’t get enough of the newest link, abcya.com. I love when I find great, new educational sites, and I am happy to share them!
