For those of you who work with primary-aged children, moshimonsters.com is a great place for younger learners (6-10). My seven-year old, just turned eight, discovered it a few months back and is thoroughly enjoying it. The programme allows them to adopt their own pet monster, chat with friends and play games. In my daughter's case, it's been good for her reading and writing skills as she has friends that post messages on her board and she has to read them in order to reply. It also teaches them the responibility of looking after a pet. They have to feed it and care for it in order to change the 'mood' and 'health' status. All in all, it seems to be quite educational and best of all, it's set up within a controlled environment, normally set up by parents or teachers.
