Fact Monster Kid's Dictionary
Fact Monster online dictionary for kids has more than 125,000 entries. What I like about this dictionary is that when you type a word, it displays a list of words that are spelled that way plus possible misspellings so you can look up a word you don't know how to spell. Another fantastic feature at this dictionary Website is all you have to do is click a button to cite the definition for a paper.
