Boowa and Kwala, http://www.boowakwala.com/.

Although this is promoted as a preschool site, I would certainly use it for early elementary aged children as well.  The site includes “My First Clicks” which train children in use of the computer keyboard and includes practice exercises.  In addition, there are over 800 games, a variety of songs and other games and activities for younger children.

I would use this in information literacy training (using the computer) and as a site suitable for younger elementary students to use and explore.  The characters are designed with this age group in mind—they remind me of Maisy Mouse or Mo Willems’ Pigeon.
