Literacy and numeracy games for the Year 1and 2 classroom

In my previous post I mentioned how gratifying it is to see the fruits of your labours blossom, especially when a teacher gets the bit between their teeth and goes for it, especially in an e-learning sense.  I work at Wakaaranga Primary on Fridays and in the dying weeks of term two,  I spent  a rushed session with Lorraine, she had been squeezed in between two other teachers and needed a bit of guidance with her wiki.  She had set it up, but was struggling with how to do screen captures, upload those images and then create links.  I helped her with this.  Prior to this point Lorraine had not been overly keen on the prospect of e-leanring, but the wiki had somehow lit a flame of relevance or authenticity for her and when I saw her last week she showed me where her wiki had come to in a few short weeks, mostly through the school holidays.  Her site has become an amazing tool for all year 1 and 2 teachers in NZ schools and you should pass on the url to as many as you can.  What Lorraine has done has trawled the Internet for Flash games relevant to Literacy and Numeracy for year 1 and 2 students.  She has then graded the games by level and strand, it is a fantastic resource and she is continually adding to it.  Her wiki address is: http://room3c2010.wikispaces.com/
