Free on-line animated moviemaker


This is a lovely site to create quick on-line animated movies with your class.  There’s no need to log in and it’s easy to use.  Just choose a background, some music, quirky characters, write the dialogue and voila!  Dvolver will e-mail the link to your movie to whoever you want to share it with.

Sheppardsoftware – fab website for online activities ages 4 – 9


I have only recently come across this comprehensive website in my online travels, but it is already a firm favourite.  It covers a wide range of age groups and even though we mostly use it for Numeracy skills, there are many other learning areas as well – Language arts, Health, Science and Geography.  There is also a whole preschool section devoted to teaching animal names, seasons, etc.
