School's out! But learning should never be out. Summer is a great time to learn something new. Be sure to check out your local library and sign up for their summer reading program! Explore the sites here on Family Fun Learning, and don't forget to get outside for some physical activity, too! Stretch your body and your mind. What's your favorite sum
 
 
Here in Michigan it is officially back to school time! Now is the time to get good study habits in place for a successful school year. Some of the websites may be helpful for homework projects, and lots of them are fun ways to practice skills. If you have ideas for websites to include, please share them as a comment to this post. :)
 
 
Last weekend, on March 20, 2010, we presented a session at the Michigan Reading Association Annual Conference held in Detroit, Michigan. The session was called "Parents as Partners in Early Literacy Development" and in it we shared some ideas for the parent nights we have done in our district. This website was one of the resources we included in our presentation. It's hard to believe it's been just over a year since Family Fun Learning was first launched!

If you have ideas for sites to include here, please be sure to click on the Comments page in the list on the left.

 
 
Welcome to the 2009-2010 school year! I hope it will be a productive year full of new learning and excitement!

As parents, you are your child's first and most important teacher, and a valuable member of the educational team. Please watch your child's school newsletters for opportunities to become a more active member in your school community, perhaps as a member of the parent-teacher group, the school improvement committee, or other programs which come up from time to time.

I will continue to update this website with links to fun and interesting websites. If you have suggestions, please comment to this blog post, or click Comments in the column to the left and complete the form.
 
 

School might be out, but learning never stops. You can use the links on this website to find fun ways to keep learning over the summer.

Students enrolled in Extended Year will be using the links on the Summer page to practice basic multiplication facts and problem-solving.

If students did only 2 things this summer to help them keep sharp over the summer, it would be: 1) practice basic math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, depending on age/grade) and 2) read, read, read!

 
 

Family Fun Learning was officially launched on Wednesday, March 25. Parents of 1st and 2nd graders from Bellview Elementary School eagerly checked out the sites and tried some of the games.  Several parents said they were going to go home and bookmarking the site on their own computers!

 
 

I am very excited to begin this website. My goal is for it to be a resource for parents, students and teachers. I spend a lot of time communicating with other teachers who share their finds. Please let me know if you have websites you recommend, or if you have a specific need, by commenting on this post. Click on the word "Comments" above, and type away!

 
 
We were happy to host the families of our first and second grade Title I students. Families spent time exploring the links on the Family Fun Learning website, and learned about Frog Family Games. Each family got a new book, and check out a game to play at home.
