Teacher’s Websites are a Treasure of Resources

Teacher’s websites are a great source of information to assist your child academically.  Most teachers have websites that inform you about what is going on in the classroom, the weekly schedule for specials, assignments that are due, etc.  Often you can find spelling lists for the week or even the year.  This is great for when your child says that they left their homework at school or that they can’t remember when something is due.
 
What do you do if your child’s teacher doesn’t have a website or it isn’t up to date?  Check for another teacher in your child’s school that is at the same grade level.  Teachers often, though not always,  work together so the students are reading the same stories or working on the same math lessons.  If I am working with a student and I’m not finding information on the teacher’s website, I look at a different school within the district, find the grade level and see if they have resources that will help me.
 
If your child’s teacher has a tab for links on it, make sure to take the time to visit it.  Many textbooks now have links that allow you to go in the book and review lessons.  The link will have any passwords that you need.  If not, ask your child or your child’s teacher.  There are also educational game links that will help to reinforce concepts in a fun way.  
 
Thanks to the time that teachers have taken to find and list resources for you, there is no need to reinvent the wheel.  Take advantage of these free resources to enrich your child’s education.
