Web sites

We thought maybe one of the first things we could do together is to take a look at some interesting computer sites that you might enjoy over the summer. Here are some that we recommend. Just click on the underlined game to try it out.

1. Activities include letter sounds to intermediate reading. You may remember this site from school because this is the one that we had set on the computers.

2. At this site you can read Clifford books and fill in words or you can play games. I'm a fan of the big red dog. Try out this site and see if you are too.

3. See how well you remember how to make patterns with this game practice with patterning.

4. Lots of number games and activities can be found at this interesting site. Let us know which ones you like!

If you try any of these games, leave us a comment and let us know if you liked them (or if you didn't) by clicking on the comment button at the bottom of this post.

While these may not be the most educational games, my friend, Carter, from Mrs. Mallon's class, recommends these sites as his favorites: Connect 4 and Sponge Bob games. What are your favorite sites? Can you recommend a favorite for your friends to try this summer? If you have a recommendation just click on the comment button and tell us about the site and why you think your friends might like it. We'll try it and see how we like it!

Parents: Your child will need help finding the comment button and with the process of leaving a comment, but try to let them type and sound out the words for any post that they might be interested in writing. Leave the spelling as your child writes it (I know it's hard not to correct it!), but we want the children to know that they can communicate on their own! Happy Summer!
