I am trying to find some ways to give my daughter fun ways to learn and reinforce what she learns at school. her teacher gave 2 websites that would be good for her. But I was wondering if you all had any that you love. My daughter is in 1st grade but has diffuculty with some reading and math and then i have a 4 yr old too.

I love Starfall, which is free, and DreamBox, which is not.  Reading Eggs is really good too (also not free).

We like VocabularySpellingCity and Vocabulary Fun. Both are free to use and the games are excellent.
