It is on my list of “30 Sites for Student’s Who Finish Early”, and I really wanted to bring special attention to it because it is in the top 5 of my students’ favorite sites. Mine too!
Fraboom has fantastic educational games, videos, interactive books, and even a live drawing class where the cheerful instructor speaks to you by name and will answer your questions. This blows students’ minds the first time they try it. They can’t believe that someone on their computer screen is actually talking to them and that they can respond via a chat box. Fantastic application for digital literacy and citizenship.
Students participating in the daily doodle can chat with the instructor but not any other “students” taking the class. My students have taken classes with kids from all over the country as well as kids in other rooms at our school. I have never seen anything like this anywhere else for kids. Totally safe….and FREE!!!

I am so excited to share this resource! FRABOOM Online Children’s Museum is a FANTASTIC (mostly free), educational website for kids. It is the epitome of Web 2.0. Features include games/interactives, Fraboom TV, interactive books and live classes. Yes! You read me right…LIVE CLASSES for Kids.

The classes feature a live teacher who interacts with the kids online while teaching them. Students can send messages to the teacher and receive a reply. I just participated in a fun drawing class and the teacher responded to me as well as the other “kids” in the class. How cool it is for kids to have their names heard online as well as their work shared with everyone in the class.
This site is a total winner!
I am totally in love with this interactive!!! It is one of the coolest drawing tools for kids. Finish the picture, save to gallery or computer, and print options available.
Some presidential games available on FRABOOM
Everything that I have shown you here is FREE on Fraboom. Even the live classes although I did not see a schedule for them. The only difference I could find with the free and paid version ($5.99 a month) was a few games.
