  1. Jacqui,
    This is a great resource! Thank you for sharing. Where can I find the list of 4th and 5th grade websites?

  2. My apologies, Becky. I’ve fixed those links. There are hundreds of links under 4th and 5th that I use all the time in my classes.

      1. Jacqui,
        Please check again. The link should be working now. Just click on it. Feel free to ask any other question.

    1. I’m sorry Marcel. Unfortunately, your website is blocked by administration in HCPS (Henrico County Public Schools) now and areas around the U.S.. It is marked as “not school appropriate” and “gaming website”. I hope this doesn’t displeases you.
      I hope you understand Marcel.
      Thanks,
      Amanda

  3. Love this compilation. In the Classrooms around the World link, however, one of the photos includes a very detailed drawing of the female anatomy. Maybe not appropriate for 2nd grade. Thanks!

    1. Was it this link–http://matadornetwork.com/abroad/photo-essay-classrooms-around-the-world/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+MatadorStudy+%28Matador+Abroad%29? I didn’t see it, but it’s possible it revolves in an out. Was it advertising?

  4. Hi Jacqui,

    As you’ve suggested in the email, I leave a comment with a link to our website http://www.magicdesktop.com. Magic Desktop is an educational software which turns Windows into a safe playground for kids (2-10 years old). We would be grateful if you could take a look at it and give us your opinion. Thanks!

  5. Jacqui, what an excellent list! I’d love to recommend adding Mrs. P’s website. The site is an excellent resource for stories and storytelling, as is Mrs. P. Every time our students have had the opportunity to Skype with Mrs. P it’s been absolute magic! Here’s the link: mrsp.com/
