•  Computer Fun at Home!

    Here is a list of some websites you can use at home with your child
    to reinforce what we are learning!
     Children's computer games & activities feature large and easy-to-use navigation buttons as well as voice instructions. Games and activities include: alphabetical order, upper-case and lower-case letters, counting numbers, connect the dots, numerical order, shapes, addition, e-storybooks and holiday games.

    Free website with printables and e-books to focus on many specific reading skills! This is an excellent site to go to if you are looking for other reading resources to use with your child at home!
    A great website where kids can play free reading games and activities with their parents. I especially love the Word of the Day box at the bottom left corner of the screen. The word (meant for young children) is accompanied by the definition and a brief, 20-second animated video to further understanding of the new word.
    Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, FREE website!!  I know you will LOVE it too!  It's Professor Garfield and is a site that fits students of all elementary ages.
