    Hi everyone!

    In my room I have 3 computers and 18 children. I would love to open up my computer center during free play in the mornings, but there are no programs on the computers for the kiddies (except for KidPix) and we don't have the money for CD programs. Does anyone know of any good websites that 4s can navigate all on their own?? They will mostly be using them in the mornings when I am at the front doors of school welcoming kids and my assistant is getting everyone settled, so I am really looking for things that I can have set up and they can just do if that's at all possible. I don't even know if there are any sites out there like that, but I thought it was worth a shot.

    Thanks! :love:

    I know you ask for websites. But I love the Jump Start programs. They are wonderful. Pop it in and it's endless. Just thought I would share.:)

    I have an endless supply of websites, but I would not put a child in front of the internet unsupervised. It's so easy to 'ad surf' to sites you don't want them on. My own 4 year old has done it before and we even have the protective software to keep her from getting to such sites.

    Having said that....

    My list goes on and on, but with that first link you should be pretty well set.

    I really like the website. I teach 3's but it looks wonderful for older kids. I will share this site on Monday. (it's weird typing Ms.ANN due to that being my name & hearing it all day long.hehe

    Thank you for the sites everyone, I've been browsing them and they look perfect. And don't worry MsAnn, my assistant is in the room to watch the kiddies when they are on the computers, I just didn't want to direct them to websites that would require her to be on top of all 3 computers helping them to navigate while the rest of the kids are running around. Thank you!!:love:
