Daily Almanac: http://www.infoplease.com/cgi-bin/word
Have your students play a daily word game on the Infoplease Web site. They click on what does it mean? to find the day's word. Students can listen to the word's pronunciation if the computer has audio. Among the recent words on this site were sophism, pinquid, and prandial. Each entry provides a statement employing the word in context and three possible definitions. Students click on the definition they believe to be the correct one and quickly learn whether they are right or wrong.

Idiom of the Day: http://www.cobuild.collins.co.uk/Pages/idiom.aspx
Each day, Cobuild (a British publishing company) offers an Idiom of the Day. This daily posting has all the makings for a quick, fun language activity at any grade level. Teachers might use the daily idiom as a discussion to settle students after lunch. Or students might create Idiom Journals; each day they might write their own take on the Idiom of the Day before the teacher shares what Cobuild has to say.

Daily Word Puzzle: http://64.15.203.20/game/
