Age Range: 4-11 (Grades PreK-6, however, only PreK-2 is currently available. Content for 4-6, will be released later in 2010.)
I’ve been hearing lots of buzz on the launch of the “Head of the Class” website that provides “free resources for math, reading, writing, spelling, science, history, geography, Spanish, art, music, and more!”
This free online, curriculum-based instruction is delivered through multimedia including:
- Videos presenting how-to activities
- Applications that teach math, phonics and spelling
- Online Coaching by the site’s mascots, Happy & Max
- Dynamic Worksheets – the content changes each time they’re opened
- Assessment Tests that measure progress and automatically adjusts the curriculum to the student’s level
When you get to this ad-supported site, use the menu on the left to view the course outline for grades PreK-2. You can also see samples pages of the course content. To access all of the free content you must create a login account.
Use the menu at the top of the page to view “Getting Started” that explains (through online videos) how this site works.
