A World of Kindergartens
http://www.iup.edu/~njyost/KHI/KHI.htmlx
GRADE LEVEL: K-2

B CONTENT:
Information on topics, literally from A to Z, from the Kinder-l discussion group for kindergarten (and elementary) educators around the globe.

B AESTHETICS:
By using a black background with white lettering the text stands out but is also difficult to read for an extended period of time. The site is mainly text-based with minimal graphics.

B ORGANIZATION:
The information is categorized alphabetically. Each letter on the main page links to a page of subjects beginning with that letter. The home page also features links to other sections of the site, with each area having a navigation menu.

REVIEW:
This is information directly from the source. Kindergarten teachers from around the world, via an email discussion group, have submitted suggestions and ideas for curriculum support, classroom management and education in general. There are ideas for activities, lesson plans and curriculum; personal experiences and practices that have worked for kindergarten teachers in the past; and home pages of kindergarten classes and teachers. This is a great place for kindergarten and elementary educators to meet and exchange ideas.
