I'm not using my school website but I think the idea is to have a functional site that you would use in your classroom. I would leave whichever tabs you had on before that you use. If you don't have a literacy links tab I would just make that an addition.

For site for parents I usually like to show the Scholastic and Reading Rockets. There are links for parents on there. My parents especially love Scholastic because they can try to see the level of the books their child is reading. My parents often try to put their kids in books that are too hard for them so I have really tried to emphasize independent reading levels for students at home.

      FCRR is a great website with many wonderful resources. The problem is, and this really isn't even a problem, but there is just so much on there that at times it can be overwhelming and hard to... more

        I like your idea about linking Scholastic to your parent section. I was wondering what I could put there. Last year I had quite a few parents ask how they could find out the reading level of books... more

          That's really sad that parents want to know reading levels. I suppose they could use the information well if they are thoughtful. But I have visions of AR and bad school practices (Put that book... more

            I agree that parents with access to reading levels can turn into a bad thing. I stress mostly interest for students. I tell my parents that if their child is interested in the book and can read it... more

            We stopped doing AR at my school because of this same type of thing. Kids were looking for a dot and not a story to engage them. At first parents were upset about it but after we explained our... more

            I agree with your opinions of AR and reading levels. It is very ironic because some parents seem so concerned about their child's reading and they want to know every way possible to help them, but in ... more

              Karie, I couldn't agree with you more! I think that more will happen at home if a parent actually sits down and reads with their child. If a parent doesn't sit down, then yes a child will get... more
