Wonderful Educational Websites!


Dear Second Graders and Guardians, 

   Technology can be a great learning tool that interests young people! :) I've tried to list some helpful and educational websites below that might provide remedial or enrichment opportunities for your child.  

    Please let me know if there are specific websites that are useful to you and your family that you would recommend that we share with fellow classmates.  Also, please send me an email if there is a website which is no longer active, working well, or has changed its content. Thanks!

     I hope you enjoy these online resources!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Patti Maala
