coming up on winter break…

…and you know what that means. Lots of time for the kiddos to get bored. Maybe a trip to the library or bookstore is in order. Or perhaps some websites where they can have fun and learn a little something along the way…

Here are a few of our favorite sites we’ve been exploring in computer lab:

* The ultimate virtual Rube Goldberg machine

* Speaking of Rube Goldberg, this video is always a hit.

* How about some math? (IXL)

* Maybe a little more math? (FunBrain)

* Or perhaps some reading? (Starfall)

* Or a story or two, read by actors? (StorylineOnline)

* Maybe some vocabulary would break up the regular routine? (Free Rice)

How about a joke of the day? (The principal told us this one.)

What do you get when you cross a snowman with a vampire?

Frostbite!

If you have any other ideas for fun, educational websites, please leave me a note in comments. Have a good December, everyone, and a lovely winter holiday when we get there.
