“Literacy is vital, but literacy is not the finish line. Literature is not just in the business of “See Jane Run.” Literature is in the business of helping us to imagine ourselves and others more complexly, of connecting us to the ancient conversation about how to live as a person in a world full of other people.” Source: http://www.sparksflyup.com/2008/11/speech-i-wrote-for-alan-conference.php

4. Kids search engines http://eyeplorer.com/show/
Commoncraft video http://www.commoncraft.com/search
http://www.twurdy.com (play on words “too wordy”) searches based on the lexical density of the website and the idea that sites with less words are easier for primary kids to read. Search results are colour coded for readability and labelled with word count.
Studysearch has a primary school search option http://www.studysearch.com.au/
How students search http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/26/technology/internet/26kidsearch.html?_r=2 so the “let me google that for you” search engine may help kids http://lmgtfy.com/
Searching tools for kids http://springfieldlibrary.wikispaces.com/KidSearch (check the other kids’ options on the left menu as well)
http://www.sweetsearch.com/
https://fuse.education.vic.gov.au/primary/pages/Default.aspx

A good approach for kids is to teach them to use google more effectively, seeing they will often go there first anyway – see https://readingpower.wordpress.com/about/ Scroll to March 2 for some ideas about new google features.
