Free Educational Links of the Week

online-educational-resources imageOnce again this week, we have made great use of free educational sites from around the web.  Below are the links to some awesome sites we have been using for some of our homeschooling lessons.

Pets, Animals, and Aquariums – information and resources  http://animal-world.com/index.html

A week of groceries from around the world in photos  http://realitypod.com/2013/05/a-week-of-groceries-in-different-countries-pictures/

French, Italian, German, and Spanish interactive dictionary with audio  http://www.chillola.com/index.html/

Editable handwriting practice worksheets  http://www.handwritingpractice.net/handwriting/index.html

This site has several elementary subjects (My Z loves it for math and stories)  http://www.netrover.com/~kingskid/

Several articles of interest from the Native Speakers Academy  including, 22 Alternatives to Punishment,  Moving to the Rhythm ‘Can Help Language Skills,  and Police State Alert: High Schools Now Using Palm Scanners   http://us5.campaign-archive1.com/?u=8fb495371ca5be23e1601ecc0&id=e1f6607b16&e=3bba501884

And looking ahead to the rest of the month, these resources will be great!

For Columbus Day (Oct. 14) we will be working on this – free  lapbooking and notebooking download  http://marinecorpsnomads.com/2011/08/christopher-columbus-lapbook-and-notebook-study.html

This site is going to be a fantastic resource for Halloween printables  http://www.myhusbandateallmyicecream.com/2013/09/over-450-halloween-printables/

Recently I was asked how I keep track of the links I find.  I make a draft in my e-mail account and title it “Math” or whatever is appropriate. I add the link and write a brief description about the site.   When the page fills up, I  mail it to myself and move it to a file that matches the topic.

I hope you find these links both useful and fun.  We did!
