As some of you know we got banned from Google+ due to some of our content. What we didn’t know at the time is that we were just one of a handfull of Anonymous accounts that was silenced. This is the sad fact of what happens across the internet when you walk to a different beat of the drum….
“30+ Sites for Students Who Finish Early” has been a pretty popular post. 10,000+ views! This tells me that teachers (including me) need enrichment sites for students who finish early or for their free computer time. That’s why I’m working on a website for kids that features not only these links but tons more. I’m adding them now. I definitely think its a bit more student friendly.
If you would like a sneak peek at the new KB…Konnected Kids click on the image below. Let me know what you think. Any suggestions for sites?
I will no longer be adding links to this post. I will add them directly to KB…Konnected Kids. Hope you and your students stop by!

From previous post: ”If your students are anything like mine they can get into a lot of mischief if they don’t have something to do, even in a short amount of time. These are sites that are fun, will engage them creatively, as well as intellectually, and also keep them out of trouble.”
I just added 10 more sites to my list from a previous post. I know some classrooms are using this list because they come to my old post every week. I occasionally add a few more sites for them. I don’t know any of their grade levels or interests so I just try to mix it up. It seems they must find things they like because they keep coming back.
