WATCH this motivational video for parents and teachers: a parent's perspective about first impressions of teachers as retold in
Rhonda's Version of The Three Bears.





PARENT UNIVERSITY

Welcome to Parent University (PU). You will find resources to help you enhance your student's educational and your personal skill level.

  • Most of the educational links are interactive so that your students can engage in learning activities.
  • There is also information to increase personal skills for parents, including remedial resources to assist those seeking a GED or Interview Skills for jobs.
  • A list of educational apps is included, too.

Kids Having a Hard TIme Learning Multiplication ?

Try TIMEZ ATTACK (A Must Have Resource) at www.bigbrainz.com . You will see a message that says that they can no longer serve home users, but click the following link to download the Timez Attack game:
http://www.bigbrainz.com/Downloads.html.

This is an absolutely FREE version available. Students love it. This is such a fun way to learn your multiplications while playing this game.



Teachers, Students, and Parents:

Looking for resources, try Discovery Education. There are plenty of resources available without logging into the site.


Can't remember what the teacher said when she explained that math,

algebra, or geometry problem? (Kids will say, "Mom, now I've got it.")

If no, Watch videos:

http://www.khanacademy.org (Fantastic Videos for Math-All Kinds)

Having a Hard TIme Remembering Facts for a Test?

Try www.quia.com This is a great site. This site provides free activities for you to view, but I like the paid
subscription where I input all of my student's information for tests, including foreign language vocabulary.
Students learn fast and easy. It is only $49 a year, but it is worth it for your child-less than $1.00 a week.
There is a free 30-day trial. It is used weekly and sometimes daily in my house. My daughter loves it.

ITUNES (http://www.apple.com/itunes/) is a lot more than music. You need to check this out for the excellent free resources.
There are tutorials on a variety of subject areas. Don't forget to look at ITUNES U, a great section. EPLORE.

Looking for A Variety of Interactive Websites, go here, too.
