Here are some educational websites I want to share with you. I hope you find these to be as good a resource for you and your children as they are to me and my children.
1) This website is a great guide for teaching reading and writing. I've been printing out reading comprehension and grammar worksheets from this site, but there is so much more for you to explore.
2) This is fantastic--a fourth grade teacher's entire curriculum with a lot of extras. I feel guilty listing this, but it is so well done. I can't help but admire her site...and share it.
3) This is really cute- a make your own story website. There are other good story making websites also but this is the one I introduced my girls to.
4) I really loved this website for my girls when they were younger. Great for toddlers and beginning readers. Be sure to check out the "more starfall" and other "more" tabs on the website for additional learning material. My girls are older but still enjoy returning to this website.
5) I haven't used this yet because I have so much for my daughters to do already.
6) Math Star Newsletter was recommended to me by my patient. I'm glad the answers are included.
These websites are great for generating your own math worksheets:
For general learning, Khan Academy and National Geographic Kids are great. Enchanted Learning has fun worksheets to learn about animals, maps, weather, languages, the rainforest and much more. Kids.gov is the US government's official web portal for kids, which includes articles, activities, games and videos on a broad range of subjects, from the academic (government, math, reading, writing, science, history, social studies) to the cultural (art, music) to the practical (exercise, health and safety, online safety, money).
The Everyday Math website helps us try to understand how the new math program is being taught in our public schools. I thought the algorithms/computation videos really show how different our children's programs are from ours. Lesson plans and associated homework and family links are there. I would need more time to explore the site fully.
Have fun and explore away!
