Internet4Classrooms: Language Arts

(https://www.internet4classrooms.com/lang_elem_index.htm)

Age Range: 5-13 (Grades K-8, with parental supervision)

 

This site was designed by two Tennessee teachers who pooled their experience and resources to provide, for free, a huge list of links to lessons, games, and activities that are conveniently organized by grade level and subject matter.

When you get to this page of the website you’ll see a menu – simply scroll down, click on a grade level and a new page opens. Then click on Language Arts and another page opens with a list of links that lead directly to activities for students to practice specific skills – like spelling, grammar, reading comprehension, writing, etc.

Does your second grader need help with spelling? Just go to the second grade language arts page and scroll down to spelling. There you can select different activities to practice. If after reaching this page you decide that your child needs a little more (or less) challenge, you can adjust the grade level accordingly.

The same astonishing archive of resources (organized according to Tennessee state standards) are also on this site for Math, Science and Social Studies.

This is an incredibly helpful resource, updated frequently. It’s unusual to find such a comprehensive archive of educational links that is so meticulously maintained.
