Below are a list of sites that are preapproved for use at school. You must be finished with work and have your teacher’s permission to play games before visiting them. Visiting any sites that are not approved can result in loss of computer privileges.
***UPDATE – Turtle Diary is no longer pre-approved.
Kindergarten – Fourth Grade:
PBS Kids (plan to use headphones with this one. The games require listening to instructions.
Code Monster I recommend this game for 3rd and up.
Dance Mat Typing
Cool Math Games. – this one works for now. If the plug-ins quit, go to abcya.com 5th grade, strategy and skills games. Same games, better hosting. It plays nicer with Chromebooks.
Christmas Bounce Game You’re welcome. Current top score is 1450. If you can beat that score (and prove it), there might just be a prize in it for you.
Cookie Clicker Approval for this one will depend on you. It is very, very rough on the mouse pad on the computer. The repeated clicks will wear it out. If it’s a game that is played too often, approval will be revoked.
Coolified Math This one has provisional approval. The games seem okay, just not very educational. Don’t abuse the privilege of having this game on the preapproved list.
If you have websites and games you would like me to consider for this list, please put them in the comments. I’m looking primarily for games that are educational and they must be appropriate for school (no violence or other inappropriate stuff). I also steer clear of games that are heavy on advertising. If you think you’ve got a winner, list it below, and I’ll have a look.
