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

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!
