Site Title:  Community Club

Site URL:

Annotation:  This web site has an interactive activity that helps students explore the different types of community helpers.  Each section has a descriptive story that tells the children what the job is and how it is helpful.  It has the words on the page as well as an icon that will read the story to the children.  At the end there is a three question quiz.

Question/Activity1:  Each student will receive a pre-cut paper doll.  They will be allowed to pick what type of community helper they would like to be and make their paper doll into the helper they picked.  We will have a class discussion and allow the students to present their helpers to the class.

Question/Activity 2:  Which of these do you think is most helpful to the community?  Why? 


It is a great site.  I love using it to look up unknown information.  It would be a great site for children when monitored for students to use.  I would highly recommend it for teachers to use it for extra information and activities to use in the classroom.

Georgia Southern University

I use this site very often!  I am able to get some of my class assignments and check my email from this site.  It is very useful to me as a student here.  It tells me the current temperature in Statesboro and helps me find information about Georgia Southern.

Georgia Performance Standards

I have found this site very useful for many projects that I have already began  in my Education classes.  It has all the new standards that will be implemented in Georgia's classrooms.  I know that it will be useful in the future years of my education.

Screven County Elementary School

This semester I have been helping at Screven County Elementary School (SCES) for my PPB.  I have found this web page useful when looking for my school and teachers contact information.  The school has recently implemented a new program for parents.  Parents of the children attending SCES can log in on this page and see their child's grades. 

Enchanted Learning

This web site is great for facts and information about different school related topics.  I found information about Georgia when I was working on my power point from this site.  It would be a good place for children to research for projects.  It also had some hands on "fun learning" activities.
