I was going through my favorites this morning and realized that these sites might be of interest to some of you. There are sites on teaching in general, teaching foreign language, money, cooking etc! These websites are pretty interesting! My DD's favorite is the cooking one listed last.
(Shari gave a great recommendation . . . passing it along)
For those of you who enjoy "spellingtime and bigmath time" as a means of allowing your child some constructive time on the computer, I'd like to offer up another choice. http://www.time4learning.com is a completely interactive full scale curriculum for grades K-8. They affer a 14 day free trial after which it's 19.95 a month.
I signed Noah up for it about 2 weeks ago and it's amazing they things that are covered! Last night he was plotting ordered pairs on a graph, then the program moved to using ordered pairs as coordinates on a map. He had lessons in social studies, science etc. He's covered such things as the 7 continents and the oceans that separate them, lessons on wants and needs, the national monuments and a whole section on spiders! The reading program is excellent, completely phonics based. I would encourage everyone to take a look as a supplement to what your already doing.
Noah loves it so much that i've had to implement an egg timer to limit his time on the program!!
