Brief Description of the Site:
Five third grade teachers at Chesterfield Elementary School, located in Chesterfield, MO have teamed up to create this Web site for their grade level. Students and parents are able to access information and assignment sheets for a variety of topics including Language Arts and Character Education.
How to use the site:
The Home page offers links to spelling lists, book report formats and due dates, reading strategies, and more. Three of the teachers have more extensive individual class Web sites linked to this page. Mr. Jones, Miss Pettersen, and Miss Fitzler offer homework assignment calendars, newsletters, important dates, and other classroom-specific information on these individual sites. This collaborative approach to establishing a Web presence for teachers is a great way to communicate common grade level curriculum elements to students and parents and encourage teachers to expand their individual use of the Internet as well.
