ONLINE ORDERING LINK My classroom ordering code is GYMML. Use this when you register to order online. Ordering online gives you access to more titles and more options than the items found in the catalog pages that are sent home. So, if you are looking for a specific title or series, you can search here for it. **If you see something on the Scholastic website that you’d like to order, feel free to do so, even if I have not sent home an order form. I will get the order sent off for you. 🙂
KIDS’ CORNER A site with great lessons and opportunities for learning about God and how we can best serve Him and His people.
KIDS’ DEVOTIONS This site has devotions that are a bit shorter, but they have some good thoughts/teachings.
KEYS FOR KIDS Each day there is a new devotional to read/listen to. (Free version) With a paid subscription, you can access more. These are ones that we sometimes use at school.
Math Practice Websites
SKILLS PRACTICE – WWW.IXL.COM This site has a list of all of the skills students learn in third grade (or any other grade)! The skills are organized into categories, and you can move your mouse over any skill name to see a sample question. To start practicing, just click on any link. Without a membership, students will be allowed 20 “free” problems per day. For students with a paid membership, IXL will track scores, and the questions will increase in difficulty as correct answers are given!

This allows you to make an unlimited number of printable math worksheets to your specifications instantly.**This is certainly not an exhaustive list of all of the available online resources. These are just the ones that I have taken the time to look at and that seemed to be done well. I hope that this list is a fun and useful tool for you and your child.
