Finding Teacher Resources on the Internet

There are all kinds of sites out on the internet that are useful to teachers. I've done some searching and found a few that help parents and teachers make learning fun. Here are some of them. Check them out and see what you think.

The Teacher's Corner
This is geared towards helping teachers in all they do. As parents, this site has lots of information you can adapt to things you do at home with your children. A few things on the home page are:

Monthly Activities and Resources – you’ll find lots there to make your month a success

Seasonal Activities – goes over all special days for that month and activities you can do to reinforce them in your children/students

In the side bars there are links to printable worksheets, book nook, free printable maps and free puzzles.

Looking around this site you’re sure to find something you can use to enhance the books you’re reading with your children.

A to Z Teacher Stuff
This is another site packed full of useful stuff. Mainly for teachers, again you can find lots to do at home with your children too.

Have a child who loves science experiments? Computers? Math? Look under lessons on the home page for subject and age appropriate lessons.

Under printables you’ll find books, coloring pages, games, worksheets and much more.

Click on all the tabs across the top of the home page and discover a world of learning fun.

Note: some of the items here are not free but many of them are.

A few more to check out are:
Lesson Plan Library

Anything that makes learning fun is a good thing. If kids are bored, they won't want to learn.

Sounds like the internet has given teachers a lot of advantages, shortcuts and timesavers that should greatly benefit their students. Enjoyed your post.
