Below are our recommendations for things to do with students that promote the thinking and literacy skills we want our students to develop. This page is a work in progress. Please let us know if you have suggestions!

Kidzworld is a safe, secure, content rich Social Network and online magazine for kids and teens, ages 9-17. Kidzworld has content that includes topics such as homework help, including science fair ideas, holiday info from around the world, movie reviews, exclusive celebrity interviews, video game reviews and much more. Kidzworld also offers printable crossword puzzles for teachers to use in their classroom.  Launched last fall was Kidzworld’s mobile site which is now live so users can stay connected and informed with ease.

Below are some videos we have been using with the students to help them learn their sight words.
