Parents: Beyond your book shelves

Page history last edited by MrsK Books 4 years, 1 month ago

Welcome Parents,


This page will provide easy access to great Internet links for your students' at home practice. Providing a daily 20 minute online practice opportunity will support the skills being taught within the classroom. These sites have been selected across our nation by educators, parents, students, and librarians.


Just create a folder entitled "Learning Shortcuts," grab a cup of coffee and begin exploring these links. Once you find a site that you would like your student to explore, just right click and save as a shortcut to your desktop. Once the shortcut is added, just left click and drag it into the learning folder.


As your learning resource reviewer, there will be additional articles posted as the year unfolds.

Enjoy your online learning connections,

Summer is a vaulting thing
It summer-saults its way past spring
Turns cartwheels, backflips
Has a ball
Until it tumbles into fall

— From Summersaults by Douglas Florian
