Have you heard of Capstone Kids? It's a great website with free games and activities SAFE for the whole family! The great thing is, the characters in the games are straight out of Capstone's books - so children are already familiar with the characters AND they get an opportunity for some interactive play...they won't even know they're learning!
Here's a little blurb from Capstone:
Capstone Kids is owned and operated by Capstone Publishers. We are a family-owned company that supports the reading needs of preK-12 students through Capstone Press, Compass Point Books, Picture Window Books, Stone Arch Books, and Red Brick Learning. We’re proud of the range of high-quality nonfiction and high-interest fiction we offer, and invite you to browse our collections!
We offer MANY Capstone titles to students in our library. What's better than getting "hooked" via an online game and then searching for the book in the library?? It's all about making connections. I highly suggest this website for students - check it out!
Here are a few characters your children will see at Capstone Kids Online that they may be familiar with from books they've read:
Damian Drooth Supersleuth
DC Comic Superheros
Eek & Ack
The Library of Doom (a favorite of OIS students!)
