Do your kids get bored or antsy during those long, hot, summer days at home? Why not assign them some “school work” to keep their minds active and their learning fresh?

Battlefield Elementary has access to many online learning tools and some of those may be accessible from home. If you have internet access at home, ask your student what websites they use at school and if they have login/passwords for those websites written in their agendas.

Here are some websites that may work at home:

Epic!: - Allows kids to read or have books read to them online. All you need on this site is a classroom code. (Many 3rd grade classes have one. Ask your child’s teacher if your student isn’t sure.)

Storia: - Storia is a digital subscription library to ebooks. Check your child’s agenda for login information.

BrainPop Jr.: - This site has short, animated videos to teach kids about a large variety of topics. Once again you will need a classroom code and if it’s not written in your student’s agenda you can ask the teacher for it.

IXL: - This site gives students the opportunity to practice very specific skills for every grade level in every subject. It is a great tool to review things they have learned or work ahead.

Woot Math: - Games, etc. make math fun!

Reflex Math: - Works on making math facts second nature; a digital “flash card” program. If this is a tool your student uses at school they should know the login information to sign in.

Another great resource is your local Public County library. Catoosa County Library is part of the Pines system of Georgia and can give you access to thousands of titles! Libraries also do many activities and clubs for children of all ages and interests. Get involved and keep learning!
