We are going to begin exploring using the site Khan Academy to support our learning in class. The teacher on this site, Saul Khan, teaches almost everything we could possibly need to know in school.
This week as a challenge I am putting his Addition and Subtraction modules up for us to listen to and practice. What is so great about these modules is that there is a video where Saul presents the concepts and then there are practice problems. If you do not understanding something, or get an answer incorrect, it explains the answer to you, or you can review the video again.
This is a huge support for our learning, as well as an opportunity to enrich any subject we are interested in. You can work at your own rate and progress through a subject of your interest. You can log in and track your progress with your work. You can even add me as your coach, so I can see your progress, too. We can learn some incredible things. Yay for Saul! Happy exploring!
Read about the Khan Academy on their About page. I will add the link to both the Students and the Parents section on the blog. Students can log in for free and track their progress.
