Librarians: A new website designed to self-motivate students to make choices and judgements about what is most useful for them as they read, search, watch and play

SlimeKids is a new website, launched in January of 2011, that is worthy of consideration by Library/Media Specialists.

In the words of creator/operator, Andy Fine…

SlimeKids features an extensive collection of book trailers organized by year and by grade level as well as numerous language arts-related games in such categories as spelling, typing, vocabulary and grammar. Additionally, the website showcases an array of exceptional literacy-related resources such as author and book review websites as well as superb learning tools including reference works and search engines.

SlimeKids was created to provide students with a playful, easy-to-use interface through which they could learn about and access valuable online resources. Having worked at every age-level of education, I have found that students are usually not aware of many of the excellent websites made for kids that exist and that teachers are often too busy to keep track of what is available. The website is designed to self-motivate students to make their own choices and judgements about what is most useful for them as they read, search, watch and play.”
