Thanks to Julie Woldring and Lori Sanders for sharing these sites over the last couple of week.
Julie reminded me of all of the great stuff up on Funbrain.com. She is currently using the cookie dough activity with her second graders to work on writing number words.
Next up is Scholastic's Character Scrapbook.

It is a new take on the old book report wanted poster option. Students have to change the character's physical characteristics to match what they perceive it to be. They then add ten character traits to further show their knowledge of the character.
Lori also shared a site she uncovered full of more student interactive site links. The site is part of the Jefferson County (TN) Schools' website. The Math Interactives have over 150 activities alone. There are also reading, language arts, science, social studies, and assessment.
Give them a look and thanks ladies for sharing.
