Web Links

Websites for reading, learning, research, and enjoyment of literature.


This is a sample of the links and websites I find for teachers as resources to their teaching. I post these on the Library catalog for easy access by parents, students, and teachers.

Here is the link for the home page of Destiny- our MPHM Library Catalog. There are many more links listed here.

Resources for parents and educators of kids in grades 4-12 to build background knowledge and reading comprehension. Research shows that kids draw on what they already know to master new vocabulary and content. This site offers classroom strategies, book and author recommendations, blogs, newsletters, research and reports as well as a Spanish link.
