The great part about reviewing portfolios is that I am exposed to so many wonderful ideas! I learn something every summer as I review students' work from across the state of Ohio. They have amazing people supporting them as they learn at home. I wanted to share a few things I picked up this summer.
I am absolutely crazy about this Twist 'n Write pencil. It works on improving a child's pencil grip.
I enjoyed exploring the Knowledge Quest web site. Some interesting history and geography curriculum. They also have Apps for your iPad.
I had not heard of ScootPad before. It is an interesting way to review materials in all subjects. It comes as an App and a download for Windows. There is a free and paid version. There are some nice printable reports that make great work samples.
Lastly, this is my new favorite resource for high school. This is a blog post with over 12 Dozen Places to Educate Yourself Online for Free. This is an excellent resource with many courses you could use to create a class for your high school student.
Have a great week.
