I absolutely love browsing the internet to find my students new and interesting educational software to use and I love it even more when I find something that's FREE.
Kid Rocket is a web browser for kids, that also protects your desktop from click happy little fingers! Its really simple - really. Instead of letting the browser have access to the whole world wide web and 'trying' to filter out the bad content, like most childrens internet browsers, filtering software do. The KidRocket designers have blocked out the entire internet and only let the browser access limited, top quality, child related web sites like Starfall and PBS Kids.
Kid Rocket allows children to also practice math skills, drawing skills which allows the student to then save it or email it as an ecard and play classic games and puzzles. There are cool admin controls for teachers and parents alike. New features are in the works and a "READ" section is coming soon. Check out the demonstration video and then download this cool tool and enjoy.

Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. Alice is a freely available teaching tool designed to be a student's first exposure to object-oriented programming. It allows students to learn fundamental programming concepts in the context of creating animated movies and simple video games. In Alice, 3-D objects (e.g., people, animals, and vehicles) populate a virtual world and students create a program to animate the objects.

Sebran's ABC's colorful pictures, pleasant music, and gentle games teach letters, numbers, simple math, and rudiments of reading.
Sebran's ABC is freeware.
You can enter your own word lists to use in the Hangman game. Just create a text file in the Sebran program folder (usually C:\Program files\Sebran), called hangman.txt, where you enter one word or short phrase per line. You can use Notepad to create this file. The next time you run Sebran, this list will be used instead of the built-in lists. A maximum of 200 words or phrases can be entered.
