In looking for an online educational dictionary for kids I have found Wordsmyth to be exceptional and free.

Whenever I need to look up the spelling of a word, I use Dictionary.com. However, Dictionary.com has a lot of extraneous material on the results page which makes it difficult at times to find what I'm looking for. I can wade through the extras, but it would be nice if there were a trimmed down version for kids.

That's where Wordsmyth comes in. Not only is Wordsmyth a great dictionary for kids, but parents can use it as a vocabulary learning tool by creating glossaries and quizzes.

Here's what Wordsmyth offers:

You can sign up for a free account at Wordsmyth so you can save your printable glossaries and quizzes as well as customize your preferences for dictionary level, entry presentation style, etc.

    Yep – this is a great tool. It's just what I was looking for for my son to develop his vocabulary. Wonderful.

    The dictionary seems to be American-English, but has references to British-English.
