Free Rice

Free Rice  is a vocabulary website that also helps donate food to people in  need for every vocabulary word you get right. This website could help with word comprehension standards. One thing with this site is you need to know how to read to be able to use this site, the site does say the word when you prompt it to but does not speak the list of answers. Its a really nice site that helps kids learn the meaning of words while also getting them involved in helping feed people. Its very easy to navigate and use. Limitations I have noticed is that the words are not super advanced, and you don’t get to see where your rice is going to which would be beneficial for children. I feel like the Web 2.o application would be best for second grade till around 5th grade, I’m not sure how effective it would be for a special needs classroom either.
