Websites

www.smartkiddies.com.au         Have you all had a chance to look at this site with your children?  It has lots of Maths activities

 

www.starfall.com     A phonics/literacy site that we use often on our Interactive White Board (IWB)

 

Computer Program - Kidpix    We will be using it in the computer lab.  It is quite reasonably priced and would be worthwhile purchasing.

 

http://abc.com.au/children/playground.html This site has some simple and fun games related to abc shows on television.

 

www.bookdepository.com     This is a British site that is a bookstore.  It has many books that you can not source in Australia, is usually much cheaper, is priced in Australian dollars and MOST importantly... does not charge for delivery!!!  I have ordered lots through them and the books arrive approximately 10 days later, very well packaged.  An example of what I have bought are Magic Tree House books for $3.95 each.

www.booko.com.au    At this site you can type in a title of a book, then it lists different bookstores, online bookstores with the prices they charge for that book and delivery costs.  It lists the Book Depository, Big W, Amazon, Fishpond, Borders, Angus & Robertson and so on.  The Book Depository comes out as one of the cheapest each time.

http://www.coolmath-games.com This site has activities for older age groups too, so you would need to select suitable activities for your child that are not too difficult.

 

 http://www.mhschool.com/math/2009/tx/assets/factdash.html This is a Maths site where you can select different algorithms...

they do start easy enough for addition and subtraction and could then provide challenges as children progress. I would suggest not setting a time limit,

then if your child wants to use counters etc to work out the answer, they can.
