I love to find websites that offer great content and materials for our children, parents, educators and caregivers.  The websites selected are primarily for preschool, kindergarten and elementary grades.  I'll be highlighting my favorites every other month with screenshots and a few comments.

Here is the special website for January and February 2010.  This website would be a wonderful complement to commemorate Black History Month in February.

Complement the folk tales featured in Gullah Tales with these First-School lesson plans and crafts.  Links to these stories have been included within the lesson plans.
    1.  The Little Red Hen
    2.  Little Red Riding Hood
    3.  Three Little Pigs
    4.  The Bossy Elephant > Elephant theme and crafts
    5.  What a Friend [Herman the Crab and Snail] >
         Snail and crab theme and crafts

This website will be listed in the educational links listed above for future reference.
