Part 2: Winter sites for young learners

You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.

Learning is a treasure and children must have fun acquiring new concepts. These are the best websites chosen by my students to learn English and have fun at the same time.

Building words

Wordworld disguises learning through fun and interactive games. Easy navigation makes it friendly for young learners and first-time Internet users. Students learn how to identify different letters until they form a word.

106 Literacy activities

iBoard allows students to practice 106 literacy activities. You can choose several different topics: Numeracy, Literacy, New Literacy, Science, History, Geography, R.E., ICT, Early years and Old online club.There are loads of fun and interactive games. It is ideal for introducing topics on an Interactive Whiteboard.

Alien Scavenger Hunt

Students listen to the word  and must catch the letter bug to make up the word they hear. You do not need to catch the letters in order. Nice and simple game with a catchy sound for young learners.

Spin and spell

Click on the picture you want to spell. Dial the letters on the wheel to spell the word. You can also listen to the word and spell it. Really nice site to use with an Interactive Whitebaord.

Photo Munchrs

Students learn vocabulary from the flickr database photos that have been tagged with a particular word. A page full of photos will appear a green word at the top. Your monster must gobble up the ones that match the word presented on screen.
