My first post outlined creative learning activities parents can do with their kids while they are out of school due to the teacher strike. *San Juan Captistrano School Strike, help for parents
Here is a list of helpful online resources for learning at home;
*Starfall phonics - free phonics activities and learning games for pre-readers and beginner readers
*Time4learning -math language arts and more for all ages, this one comes with a monthly fee
*Timez attack- online video game for drilling/learning multiplication facts, this game is very well done, great graphics, and it has a free version that should be all you need.
*dreambox learning -math games for grades K-3. We had a free subscription and my 2nd grader loved this program, the games seemed to me to be higher thinking-gifted math problems, not standard math problems. The kids pick an avatar and move around different "lands". Subscription is monthly.
*Enchanted learning -activities and worksheets you can print, and a few online activities, a low year subscription, does have limited free access.
*Kids Art Classroom lesson plans
