Wonderful Websites for Workshop Wednesday!


I am very happy to link up with Jivey for Workshop Wednesday because I am always looking for some great new websites for reading!

My favorite "go - to" web resource is the BBC.

They have different "grade levels" but once you get that sorted out, there are lots of great resources:

-KS1 is approximately kindergarten and first grade
-KS2 is approximately 2nd, 3rd and maybe 4th
-KS3 is 5th, 6th and upward

First up is Bitesize.  This section is great for re-teaching and reviewing all kinds of reading and other Language Arts topics like:
Reading
Writing
Speaking and listening
Even Shakespeare!
(of course this is for the older students)


Here's what the KS2 looks like:

I like how this is laid out with a plan.  It's great for center work and for those who ask for additional practice at home.  Plus it's FREE!  I even use these "younger" materials for my middle school students because it breaks things down for them.



If you simply want to reinforce topics, the games are great too!  I think it's super how they break them into age levels and you can select different subjects!

And of course there's a "Teacher Area" that has links to all kinds of video clips on even some mundane things like punctuation.  You do have to get past some of their spellings and terminology but once you do that, you'll find lots of little goodies!

Well that's my little "secret" website but I am excited to see what your "secrets" are too!

Oh and before you go, you might want to make sure you have entered the Milestone Mania Giveaway from Angela at The Teacher's Desk 6!  There's lots of great prizes being given away (even if I do say so myself!)

  2. Okay....so this post is perfect because I've actually used some of the BBC links from random places, but I've never actually tried to figure out how to navigate the site. Your pictures are super helpful and I'm putting this on my list of things to dig deeper into! Thank you!

  3. Thanks for sharing this great site! Like Alison, I use BBC games and things that pop up when I do searches, but I have never actually gone to the site.
