For some years, the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) reform and the increased demands for school accountability has become imperative, more and more schools have launched a school website aimed at enhancing educational activities, supporting student-teacher communication, contributing to school marketing efforts, and fostering accountability to and collaboration with the school's constituency (Tubin & Klein, 2007).

These websites caught my attention because I they are based around my grade level which is K-6. I wanted to talk about the websites that will be essential to the education of my students and me as well during my teaching years. These websites will be very useful for the students throughout the school year to help them in different subjects. The Fun brain is a site that is educational games for kids of all ages. It helps with math, grammar, science, spelling, and history (Funbrain, 2012). It is a very educational site that will get the children more involved and will be very interested for the students that want to learn more in this subject. This site helps students in all subject areas; they are able to get the extra help they may need after a lesson they may have completed in class. This site expands and even goes into all types of games the student can play in order to advance in a particular subject matter. The game lessons are free and can be used within the classroom to help teachers fully teach students to the best of their ability. Kids know it is another educational site that teaches the children more about history and the reason why we are what we are today. History helps each child learn about whom they are and where they come...
