Article - About Educational Websites:

Teaching children sometimes seems like a thankless job. Parents and teachers spend hours working with the children and hear the moans of exasperation or see the child rolling their eyes. Using some fun tips can help with teaching because it makes the learning experience a fun one for all parties involved. There are a few educational websites that encourage kids to play games to learn and take interactive quizzes to test their knowledge.

One of the better websites is Fun Brain. The website includes games geared towards teaching students a specific type of activity and all the games were created by the website. They have Math Car Racing, Grammar Gorillas, and The Plural Girls just to name a few. They also have comic books to encourage kids to read and a resource area for teachers.

For those who really want to make learning fun, Learning Games is an invaluable resource. The website has over 100 online games listed and each game has a different theme or lesson attached. Kids can learn about math, science, reading, and other topics. Some of their games are even geared towards those not yet in school.

Parents and teachers occasionally need some encouragement of their own and they often do this by finding tips on teaching. A great source of information is the Scholastic Parents website, created and run by the Scholastic book company. They offer help in the world of reading, but also a few other tips for teaching kids in real life setting, such as using the menu at a restaurant to teach kids about math.

Room 108 was created specifically for kids and everything on the website is safe so that kids can spend time there without parental supervision. The website is divided into different categories like Music, Math, and Writing. They offer different lessons and games that help students learn.

There’s also the Family Education website, which lists online games and activity ideas. They have separate categories for younger children and school age children. They also list ideas for teaching children facts and ideas relating to different holidays. The Louisiana Kids Fun and Education Page is another good resource. The focus on this page is teaching kids the history of the state and facts relating to different governmental ideas. They have free downloadable coloring book pages and quizzes for kids to take after finishing their lessons.

Other tips for parents and teachers can be found at Kids Bib Learning Tips, The Child Development Network, and Pearson‘s Family Education Network.
