Funducational Websites for Pre/Early Schoolers

Here are a couple of my favourite funducational websites for pre-schoolers and early schoolers:

Curious George

This website has games that are fun with an emphasis primarily on Math.  There are games that promote skills such as counting, adding, map use, shapes, measurement and double digit number sequencing.

One of my favourite games is Banana 411 where the child memorizes a 3 digit 'phone' number to see a small videoclip.  Elijah (4), who insisted it was his turn to play while I was writing this post, likes Present Time. 

The underlying messages promoted on the Curious George website are: it's nice to give homemade things as gifts and it's good to help those less fortunate than yourself.  Math with a message -- how great is that?

PBS Island

Here you'll Find Fun games Featuring a variety of Familiar characters from shows such as Sesame Street, Super Why and Between the Lions.  These games promote Language Arts skills such as letter identification, rhyming, phonics and alliteration (see above for a lot of words that begin with "f" used together -- a total fluke, I promise).

This site allows you to create an account that will monitor the progress of your child (or of multiple children).  The child advances to the next level by successfully completing all the games in the first level.  Tickets are earned for playing each game and then the child can use those tickets to buy prizes for their very own virtual tree house.  Elijah was very excited when he had enough tickets to buy a robot!

Check out these amazing websites with your young ones and let me know what you think of them.  Feel free to add links to your own favourite educational websites too.

  7. is a great one!

  8. Kim, I've been to that website before when Desiree was in kindergarten, but had forgotten about it. I'll have to take Elijah there!

    It's nice how the reading material is broken down by levels and at the early levels they actually sound it out for the kids!
