iPhone/iPad app, Learn to Tell Time, is not wildly fun as there is not crazy thumb action involved, but has layers of difficulty so it’s actually worth the money.
I really like Spanish Playground which is a blog for learning Spanish that is geared for children. It’s on my blog roll in the footer. Here you can learn to play Simon Says in Spanish and learn parts of the body as well!
Here is a list of one hundred books selected by the National Education Association in 1999 as great reading for children and young people. To help make these books more useful, we have added book and author links to any TeachersFirst resources and lesson ideas.
I am a BIG fan of the Singapore Math Workbook curriculum series that is used in Singapore (they speak English!). My kids use it to supplement University of Chicago’s Every Day Math which I don’t love as much (too New Math for me!). I find that Singapore Math is both visual and intuitive plus it has plenty of math fact practice that Every Day Math lacks.
I pair these two excellent books together because they tell two parts of the same story: the near eradication of the Snowy Egret caused by a fashion trend and the birth of the Audubon Society in Boston, Massachusetts.
