Mrs. Drake's Classroom
REDUCE waste. INCREASE achievement!
Most teacher websites are not intended for student use. When a website is created for students, you will find they voluntarily review skills taught in school.
Make your webpage instructional by creating a page for each subject you teach. Include at least two activities for each subject. Choose activities without advertisements that can be played with minimal directions.
Look for games/activities that can be directly linked to your website that a child can use with little or no direction. For example, do not put a link to www.funbrain.com , as that has many games that are not educational. Put a direct link to a game like Plural Girls at http://www.funbrain.com/plurals/index.html . (Disclaimer: I am not the fan of FunBrain as I once was, as there are too many advertisements and opportunities to leave the educational game.)
