Here are some educational (and fun) websites that may be useful to you! Parents, just as I do here at school, you may wish to preview the sources before allowing your children to use them. For example, some BrainPOP videos or Tumblebooks may be more suitable for older students. The purpose of this list is to give you some resources to use at home. Enjoy!
My Portaportal (http://guest.portaportal.com/jbalnave)
A collection of links organized by subject. Please let me know if you have a favorite educational site that is not listed! I'd be happy to add it so all can enjoy.
Spelling City (http://www.spellingcity.com/jbalnave/)
I will be posting word study sorts here. Spelling City has lots of fun games that are useful for building spelling and vocabulary skills. Check it out!
