Tips for Getting Started with Sending Free Holiday Ecards for Kids

Before you start having everyone in your classroom or home sending ecards, you should visit Greetings Island first. Explore the site to view the selection in the online collection. This will help you to direct younger children to appropriate categories. For example, Funny has some cards that include text or images that might not be suitable for your age group. However, the category Kids has some great options that kids will like to send. If you want more options for sending ecards, check out Free E-Card Sites for the Classroom.

Since Greetings Island is free, there are advertisements. Some ads link to different card sites. This can be confusing to young users. It is recommended that before having your students or children create ecards, give them a quick tour of the site. Help them to differentiate between an advertisement link and a card selection.

Whether it is programming, video production, graphic design, or digital citizenship, I am interested in how apps and tools can be used to enhance learning. Throughout the years I have designed many TechnoKids technology projects. My favorite part of curriculum development is field-testing the ideas to determine the activities that work best in real classrooms. I write about what I have learned that can save teachers time in their own curriculum planning.
