Some parents asked about accessing some of the resources the students use at home. There are some links already in the banner of this site: ABCya has a lot of learning games that the students enjoy. BibleGateway is a great resource for bible study, including many different translations in many languages. FreeRice is a fun site where students can answer level-based trivia questions...but the most interesting aspect is that for each correct answer they earn rice that is donated to the World Food Programme to help people around the world. Jupiter is the grade book that is used at OCSI. You can check your child's progress at any time KidsDiscover is the site with resources for the new Social Studies material that we are using from this year. The texts that are used in class are there and can also be used interactively. MyMath is the McGraw-Hill workbook that OCSI uses at the elementary level. It is possible to access the entire workbook and additional learning resources online. RenaissancePlace is where students can take AR tests and everything else related to the Accelerated Reader program. SumDog is a great site for really fun Math games where the students can even compete with each other. TreleaseOnReading is full of fantastic support and encouragement for continuing to read-aloud to your child at home. Writer's Workshop is the writing program used in the elementary grades at OCSI. It's a good program and highly respected in education. Do you have any suggestions for others that could be added?
