Hi! It’s Wednesday, October 19, 2011, and time for Language Arts at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
Ambleweb

Age Range: 7-12 (with parental supervision)

The Ambleside Primary School faculty and fourth-year students created the free language arts games and activities on this site. The math portion of this site was reviewed in ClickSchooling in 2005 and is still useful. Today’s review focuses on the literacy portion of this site that appears in two sections as follows:

I. When you get to the site you’ll see the word “Literacy” and below it a menu that includes short “Click-On” activities as follows:

*Interactive spelling worksheets -Cclick and drag the missing letters to the blank spaces where they belong to complete the words.

*Proverbs – Click and drag the first and last parts of each proverb to place them together.

*Adjectives, Nouns, Verbs, and Prepositions – Drag each word into the correct category.

*Word Finder – Given a word, see how many smaller words can be made from its letters.

*Sentence Sorter – Put the words in order to create a sentence that makes sense.

II. Below the above menu, click on the words “Ambleweb Literacy Page to find:

*Look, Cover, Write, and Check – A customizable spelling list. You look at the word, then click “cover” and type the word from memory. You will be informed whether you got the word correct or not.

*Book Reviews – Read reviews submitted by (mostly young) website visitors, or submit your own!

*Word Games and Quizzes – Create stories, limericks, or haiku. Work on vocabulary, spelling, reading comprehension, and more!

*Best Internet Resources – A long list of recommended links for further Language Arts learning and practice. (I did not review these links, so parents, as always, should preview the sites and supervise Internet use.)
