  3. I find that the children love the New York Zoo site called Build Your Wild Self. I also have several others on the Kindergarten page of my website. Starfall is a never fail winner with the little ones!

  11. I am a first year K-5 Tech Teacher in Southern Illinois. My district’s resources are limited but I do have 30 computers available and 15 iPads in my classroom.
    Would you be willing to send me a sample or general overview of your K-5 curriculum?

    Otherwise, I am also interested in knowing if you ever assign any projects for the young ones in your class. Mine are focusing right now on BigBrownBear typing, but I would really love to give them an assignment that they can show their parents (take home) that is tangible and reasonably easy for one or two 25 minute class periods.

    • Hi Tabitha–There are a variety of ‘freebies’ here. See if they give you enough of an overview.

      My 1st graders love Big Brown Bear typing. We make it a game–when they get to 22, they can move on to the next activity (say, Starfall). We use KidPix a lot, writing and drawing their site words. 2nd graders love, which transfers nicely to the home. Google Earth–there are wonderful activities on that for K-2. Is that the age group you’re thinking of?
