Well, it’s another school year. I’ve been watching the back to school buying frenzy and thought it would be nice to offer something relatively free or inexpensive. The following websites offer free information and printable materials to students, parents, and teachers.
Disney FamilyFun - Offers printable back-to-school bookmarks, stationary, book and binder labels, homework charts, and kids calendars. Parents, you never have to write another note to the teacher, just print out the form letter, fill in the blanks, and sign.
FamilyEducation – Gives your child printable skill building exercise sheets, homework completion chart, printable back-to-school budget and bedtime routine checklist. They also have puzzles, games, and craft ideas. The printables and activities are divided according to age: toddlers, preschool, kids, and teens.
LD Online: The World’s Leading Website on Learning Disabilities and ADHD - Has back-to-school tips and expert advice for parents and teachers. LD OnLine is a national educational service of WETA-TV, the PBS station in Washington, D.C.
Scholastic.com – A website for students, parents, teachers, school administrators, and librarians, there is something for everyone here. Check out the back to school reading list in the parents section for ages 3-5.
I hope this makes going back to school a little easier (and maybe a little more fun?) for everyone!
