Some students struggle with spelling. Our language can be very puzzling at times. I’m shure you no wat eye mene. I came across a site tonight, which suggests many ways to assist teachers in teaching spelling. I believe that many of them can be used by parents who are interested in helping their kids with their spelling this summer.

There is also a list of links to help with the teaching of most other school subjects. Check them out!

I’m as tired of this rain as anyone but things could be worse. I remember a few field trips with a busload of soggy kids traipsing behind an equally soggy guide saying, “If it wasn’t raining, we could see the trail up other side of the valley from here!”

Here is a site with many, many virtual field trips to places all over the world. Put on your slippers, kick back the recliner and check them out!
