When arriving at the colorful website, select the “Menu” option in the upper left to expose the menu and find: 

  • About – Learn more about the Sauk Nation’s history and more

  • Phrases – Read phrases in English related to colors, days, weather, eating, greetings, feelings, and much more, then click the phrase to hear it in the Sauk language.
  • Games – Play matching games, enjoy the online or downloadable coloring book, or explore the online games of Sauk Count and Climb and Sauk Drop and Catch (NOTE: We could not get these 2 games to load for us.)
  • Storybooks – Read and listen to “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed”, see the Eric Carle book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear translated into Sauk and the story “Kâta Kîshkô”.
  • Videos – Watch animated stories, see videos about the Sauk language, and learn to count to 10.

Visitors do not need to be part of the Sac and Fox Nation to appreciate the value and beauty of the language. This website provides a wonderful introduction to the Sauk language and students may be inspired to dig deeper into the language of their own heritage.

A+ Math Games

(www.aplusmath.com/games/index.html)

Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12, with parental supervision)

 

This website contains fun, interactive games for learning basic math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and geometry.

The games include: 

  • Matho – This is math and bingo combined for “Matho”! Includes game board and games for addition, multiplication and division facts. When you get to the web page, you will see a game board with numbers on it. Below it are questions like “What is 8 x 5?” You do the math, and get the answer – in this case “40”. Then you click on the number 40 on the game board. As soon as you get 5 in a row – you have Matho!
  • Hidden Picture – Choose your subject to get to the game board with numbers on it. Above the game board are math fact problems like “8 – 3?” You find the correct answer on the game board and click on it. If you are correct a piece of the hidden picture is revealed. Once you answer all of the questions correctly – you get to see the whole picture!
  • Math Memory – Click on the type of Math Memory game you’d like to play. On the next screen, you will see 2 game boards. Both boards are covered in question marks. Click on a square on one board, and you will see a math fact like “3 + 3?” Then you click on a square on the other side to try to find the solution. The idea is to try to remember as you click from one side to the next what facts and answers lie beneath each square. Requires concentration and develops good memory skills. Once you clear both boards by finding the solution to each math fact, you win!

These games are a great way to remedy the boredom of drill and practice with basic math facts.

When you finish the games, check out the rest of the site to find flashcards and worksheets and homework help. Highly recommended!

A new page opens that displays all of the vocabulary lessons (includes audio) that cover topics such as animals, weather, transportation, food, money, shopping, education, entertainment, numbers, colors, clothing, time, and much more. You can also watch pictures of objects and hear the word that describes them pronounced by a narrator. And this is sort of like virtual flash cards: 

  • Picture Game – A word is displayed and you select the correct picture.
  • Guessing Game – A word is displayed and you select the correct definition.
  • Typing Game – A word is displayed and you type in the correct translation.
  • Matching Game – Drag-and-drop the translations that match displayed words.

As the website explains, Internet Polyglot assumes that users already have some experience and knowledge of a foreign language prior to using the activities at the site. It is intended as a supplement to a foreign language program – not as the sole method for learning a language.
