SlimeKids is a completely free, student-friendly website that provides access to excellent literacy-related resources. The site features a huge collection of book trailers organized by year of publication and also by grade level. It also features an excellent selection of educational games with bona fide educational value such as spelling, typing, grammar and vocabulary games. Furthermore, students can explore author websites, read book reviews, utilize search engines and look up reference information. The website is designed to self-motivate students to make their own choices and judgements about what is most useful for them as they read, search, watch and play.
