Hi! It’s Wednesday, May 29, 2014 and time for Language Arts at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 5-18 (grades K-12 with parental supervision)
This website sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities, offers free, high-quality online lesson plans integrated with resources to promote active learning in literature and language arts (as well as other subjects such as art, foreign language, history and social studies).
When you get to the site, you’ll see a featured lesson plan. Below that is a sorting tool where you can select the grade level you want (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12) and other features including subtopics such as:
- Fables, Fairy Tales, and Folklore
- Short Stories
Submit your parameters and a menu of lesson plans will appear below the sorting tool. Click on any lesson title and a new page opens displaying the lesson including:
- Guiding Questions
- Learning Objectives
- Preparation Instructions
- Lesson Activities
- Extending the Lesson
You’ll find links to free, carefully screened educational websites where you can read the literature online and find resources to extend the learning. In some cases you’ll find free, printable worksheets as well.
The content is so extensive that a description here simply doesn’t do it justice. This is a remarkable resource for the home educator – so bookmark it to return often.
