Dear Reader,

I am blessed with kids that talk to me. They even call me (or
email me) during the school day with stories of their successes
and non-successes. I was going to use the word “failures,” but
these are not failures, they are hiccups and lessons: a grade lower
than hoped for, a library book lost, an argument with a friend.

I just got a call from Matthew, now a high-school sophomore. He got a 99% on a quiz in AP Chemistry! Nearly the highest grade in the class! He was so thrilled, and I’m thrilled that I’m at the top of his list of people to share with.

Thank goodness for kids that talk! Your comments are welcome here.

Today’s newsletter is brought to you by the following sponsor.

  • 5 Ways to Use a Surfnetkids Printable
    Surfnetkids Printables are two-page Internet enrichment handouts with five to ten recommended sites and related online games on a variety of subjects for a variety of age groups. They can be used:

    1) to integrate technology into your curriculum
    2) for extra credit activities
    3) as handouts to be sent home to parents
    4) as a guide to student research
    5) for gifted student enrichment

    But don’t take my word for it. Sign up for a risk-free evaluation, and pay no money unless you agree that the Surfnetkids Printables Club is worth every penny.


See ya on the Net,

Homework Help


When you’ve searched, queried and pleaded for answers to your homework questions to no avail, who ya gonna call? Homework busters, that’s who! Here’s the scoop on real people (teachers, librarians, experts, authors, and fellow students) who will answer your most perplexing homework questions via e-mail.

All Experts: Homework Help



Calling themselves “the oldest and largest free Q&A service on the Internet,” All Experts boasts a network of a thousand question-answering volunteers. Find an expert by navigating through the subject directory. Clicking on your topic (such as Geography or Spanish), you’ll be presented with an annotated list of volunteers. Each expert has a profile with ratings and comments from previous question askers, so you can choose your volunteer based on past performance.

IPL KidSpace: Ask a Question



At IPL KidSpace there are no previous questions and answers to peruse, just a form to submit your own query. Questions will be answered via email by a school librarian in a couple of days. Most likely, the volunteer will point you to Internet resources where you can find your own answer. What else would expect from a librarian? IPL KidSpace reminds us that our own school librarians are terrific (and live) resources that should not be overlooked.

RefDesk: Ask the Experts



Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your class could submit questions to a real astronomer while studying the solar system? Or how about an entomologist to answer your bug questions? This site contains the Web addresses of fifty experts who are willing to answer questions. It is not as extensive a list as the Pitsco site (see below), but it is a good starting point.

=============> These site reviews (and more) are available as a two-page printable clickable classroom handout. Take a free look with a risk-free 10-day trial membership in Surfnetkids Printables Club.
