    Free Educational Online Games for Children

    What are some websites that host educational games that you use in your elementary class (some of your favorites)?

    We use (and love): ABCya.com, RoomRecess.com, and HoodaMath.com a lot and just wanted to add some more options for my kids.

    Thanks!

    They just added a reading skills game for Context Clues (I think it even grades the kids as they click)

    My daughters's teacher send us to this site beestar. Exercises are short so DD is more willing to do the work and she likes the honor roll, ranking, award program very much.:D

    I ADORE Brainpop, just can't afford it, lol. I've used Starfall and Xtramath in the past, as well as Spelling City.

    BrainPopJr is great, especially the quizzes after each lesson (I have my class "clap" when I hover over the correct answer, it gives them all a chance to answer).
