Brainpop is a fun, interactive site where your guides, Tim and Moby, will explain different concepts, events, and ideas in all subject areas. At the end of the short video there are follow multiple choice quizzes to reinforce key ideas learned. But be careful this website is not free.
Math is Fun!
This game is one of my favorites! Its goal is to help students develop number sense and build basic math fact fluency by adding surrounding numbers together on a tile board to match the number coming up next.
Another great reinforcing math website with games, puzzles, and lessons/practice that allows students to revisit concepts taught in math including multiplication, division, geometry, and basic facts.
Walk into US History
This is a site put together by the Library of Congress to help students journey back through time in the United States. On this website students can discover the beginning of America through meeting amazing Americans, jumping back in time, hearing songs from the past, and much more.
Funbrain is a great website that enforces reading and math skills taught through games, arcades, web book, and comics. Try the math arcade, it’s my favorite!
Scolastic Book Finder
This site is a great resource when you have a book and want to know if it is appropriate for your child to be reading based on their current independent reading level. First, choose your level reading system which is Guided Reading, then simply enter your book title. Remember levels aren’t everything, even if the book isn’t exactly your level use the five finger test to see if the book feels right!
A to Z Book Finder
This is another site on leveled books for readers. On this site you can search a book to find its level or click on a level to find titles on your reading level. Remember not every book is leveled so the five finger test is still a great tool also!
This website shows 51 pictures of the Titanic. It begins with the ship leaving port and ends with artifacts.
