Mrs. Walley's First Grade News

Name:Mrs. Walley's First Grade News

Brief Description of the Site:
Amanda Walley teaches first grade at Pawtuckett Elementary School in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her classroom Web site is nicely organized for easy student and parent access. The Home page features a welcome message that highlights important linked information, with static links to classroom management, activities, and resources available on the left side of the page.

How to use the site:
Mrs. Walley uses her classroom Web site as a vehicle for students to research specific topics on the web through WebQuests, to play learning games, and as an ‘after hours’ resource that students and parents can use to access classroom information outside the school day. Be sure to visit the WebQuests area where Walley has assembled a nice collection of first grade Internet-based activities. Her Orientation page and Classroom Newsletter are great resources for parents and good models for teachers.
