It’s no secret that computer and research skills are becoming more and more necessary. Technology has created an unlimited amount of opportunities for our students. They have access to enormous amounts of information that may not have been available if they were born decades earlier.
Using technology in the classroom is an amazing opportunity for students to learn in a fun and engaging way. However, the question of which digital sites are appropriate for our students is always on our mind. It can be overwhelming sifting through websites trying to deem whether of not they are beneficial and appropriate.
Below you will find a list of engaging digital sites for the classroom.
No Red Ink is one of my favorite grammar sites to use in the classroom. It guides students through grammatical lessons and helps them to master each skill.
Orpheus the Lyrical – Good for figurative language
Animals A-Z (Grammar, Spelling, Punctuation)
Virtual Field Trips (Previews Free, Full Version Paid)
IXL (free trial, paid subscription)
Fun Brain (Reading, Math)
Kahoot is by far one of my favorite digital sites to use in the classroom. Teachers may create their own quiz or you can search by topic and choose a pre-made quiz.
Appropriate & Educational Games
Cookie (Better suited for primary students)
StarFall (Better suited for primary students)
