|Description:||Bookmark this site NOW. It's one of the best Language Arts sites we've seen - and we've seen a lot!
When you get to the site you can utilize the search area at the left or you can scroll down and use the "Explore Resources by Collections" area.
Then scroll over Classroom Resources in the top menu and choose from:
Use the Student Interactives section to incorporate online activities (such as games, webquests, puzzles, writing starters, etc.) into your language arts curriculum for K-12 students. The activities are tied to specific lessons, but can be used independently or with other lessons as well.
And don't miss the Calendar Activities. You can view the calendar by day, week or month to see activities and online resources associated with events in literacy and literature. For example, on the April calendar you'll find language arts lessons with enrichment activities to learn about: Hans Christian Andersen, Maya Angelou, Pocahontas, Noah Webster, and more. (Just click on the description on any given day of the calendar to access the resources.)
Students can enjoy using technology while developing their literacy skills. The beauty of the ReadWriteThink website is that homeschoolers - no matter what methodology you use - will find something useful. Traditionalists can follow lesson plans, while unschoolers can enjoy the activities that peak their interests. Eclectics can use a little of everything.
