School and Grade 3 Student Approved Websites

Mathletics:  This is a great website!  I can monitor student use from behind the scenes and assign different challenges based on need, and what is being studied in class. Each student has their own log-in. 

Typing: In this digital world it is important to start typing skills at an early age. It is recommended students log in to save their progress. Log in information was sent home in agendas. 

Discovery Education: While mostly used by me to share information via the Smartboard, this website is also easy to navigate by students. They must use their school google/gmail account to log in.

Learn Alberta's Online Reference Centre:  This is an amazing resource, full of information for all subject areas and grades.
