  2. Becky

    Jacqui,
    This is a great resource! Thank you for sharing. Where can I find the list of 4th and 5th grade websites?

  3. Jacqui

    My apologies, Becky. I’ve fixed those links. There are hundreds of links under 4th and 5th that I use all the time in my classes.

    Hi Jacqui,

    Great collection! Another good one is http://powermylearning.org which feature educational games and activities sorted by subject matter, grade level and common core standards.

    Hey Jacqui, as a follow up to my email and your advice on what next, here is the site I suggest for math – http://www.mathblaster.com/coolmath/ and the one for science is – http://www.schoolofdragons.com/hiccups-science-workshop/ .

  7. Marcel van de Wouw

    Hi Jacqui,

    I created a page with my educational games… perhaps you want to throw a link to it http://www.digipuzzle.net/education/

    Thx, Marcel

    • Amanda Ip

      I’m sorry Marcel. Unfortunately, your website is blocked by administration in HCPS (Henrico County Public Schools) now and areas around the U.S.. It is marked as “not school appropriate” and “gaming website”. I hope this doesn’t displeases you.
      I hope you understand Marcel.
      Thanks,
      Amanda

    Many thanks Jacqui, excellent as always. Here is our latest student guide as a free download for all to enjoy. https://www.examtime.com/blog/student-guide-2014/

    • Jacqui

      Absolutely, Philip. I still get several thousand viewers a day on the old version, so it remains a viable repository.

  10. Philip Ellis

    fabulous, have a lovely weekend Jacqui.

  11. Allison Malt

    Love this compilation. In the Classrooms around the World link, however, one of the photos includes a very detailed drawing of the female anatomy. Maybe not appropriate for 2nd grade. Thanks!

    • Jacqui

      Was it this link–http://matadornetwork.com/abroad/photo-essay-classrooms-around-the-world/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+MatadorStudy+%28Matador+Abroad%29? I didn’t see it, but it’s possible it revolves in an out. Was it advertising?

  12. Eugenia

    Hi Jacqui,

    As you’ve suggested in the email, I leave a comment with a link to our website http://www.magicdesktop.com. Magic Desktop is an educational software which turns Windows into a safe playground for kids (2-10 years old). We would be grateful if you could take a look at it and give us your opinion. Thanks!

    • Jacqui

      Excellent. I get a lot of interest from parents about providing a safe internet environment for their kids. This will be appealing.

  13. Matthew C. Winner

    Jacqui, what an excellent list! I’d love to recommend adding Mrs. P’s website. The site is an excellent resource for stories and storytelling, as is Mrs. P. Every time our students have had the opportunity to Skype with Mrs. P it’s been absolute magic! Here’s the link: mrsp.com/

    • Jacqui

      Thanks, Matthew. Just add the site and a link to the comments. I’ll curate it next time around.
