Friday Freebie: Online Resources and Entertainment for Your Kids

February 28, 2009

I am a single mom of one very busy active 11 year old girl who loves her computer. She loves coming on and playing games, goggling stuff she wants to know about, and watching You Tube videos, and cartoons that we find online. Almost everything Roo does online she does for FREE. Her computer time is about 1 hour a day after school unless she is working on educational sites..so what does Roo recommend?

Roo’s top 5 FREE sites that she either has visited while growing up and her current favorites are listed below.

1.Teletoon ( Roo loves the games here).

2.Club Penguin ( Roo has had both free and paid memberships here–it came out of her allowance.

3. Link to Learning (If you live in Ontario and have kids this really is a curriculum rich resource that is fun as well. With all the winter storms here Roo has made great use of this site this year.)

4.Starfall ( what a great online reading resource.Roo when learning to read  spent alot of time on this site)

5. Chapmans ( Roo loves the fact that playing games here earns her points that she can trade for real stuff even free ice cream, this site is meant for Canadian kids.)

    Hi Hollie! I hope you’re still accessing your blog!

    I came to your site looking for this particular post and so glad I found it since you don’t have a search box (or I just didn’t see it?)

    I was looking for online resources for my daughter and though I have accessed Starfall before, I totally forgot it. Now, thanks to this post, we can have fun again at home!

    You are brilliant Hollie! You keep finding good stuffs! God bless you.
