Dear Parents,

           Extending your child’s learning at home with online games, interactive books and other activities can be a very engaging and worthwhile experience for your child.  The websites above are resources gathered by teachers at Ballard that aim to help our students grow in all content areas as well as develop their research skills and skills with technology.  We hope you enjoy them at home as well as at school and we’re always open for suggestions, ideas and new websites! 

           If a website requires a login, your child’s teacher, librarian, or Mrs. Kelley can provide you with this information!  Some websites may have ads; these websites have been screened and there should not be inappropriate ads.  Help your child remember to stay safe online by avoiding ads.  Please bring any questionable ads to our attention.

 

                                    Sincerely,

                                    Jody Kelley

                                    Technology Integrator
