As part of our community contribution to promote literacy, the University of Guam’s ED638* students and I will continue to share effective literacy websites that we think you’ll enjoy and learn from at the same time!
Contributor: Devin Paciente
The website http://www.funschool.com provides learning activities for students, teachers and parents. There are many learning activities for grade levels Pre-K to 6th grade. Most of the activities are quiz-type games that users can play for subjects such as Reading, Language Arts, and Math. There are also games for content areas, such as Science, Social Studies, and Health.
For students in Pre-K, there are matching, counting and printable coloring activities. K-2 students can have fun learning how to type and spell with the Language game Super Hyper Spider Typer! Students in the 3rd-4th grades can have fun with math and memorizing activities that become more challenging as they progress through levels. The 5th-6th grade students can apply their knowledge to trivia-type games on a variety of subjects. The website also includes a game that helps young learners support recycling.
The website also includes a link for parents to http://www.kaboose.com. On the website there is a blog where parents can read and share their stories, parenting tips, family activities, or just simply exchange ideas. Parents can also find seasonal/thematic arts and crafts activities, as well as many recipes that they can experiment with, such as grilling, cooking with kids, or healthy eating.
