Drop by every Friday to discover what wonderful website my classes and parents loved this week. I think you’ll find they’ll be a favorite of yours as they are of mine.

You can organize a classroom with blogs, internet start pages (click for more on internet start pages), wikis, even twitter (this is the only one I have yet to use because my Admin shut me down on it. Click for more on twitter).
Wikis are the most thorough. Take a look at my 2nd grade class wiki (see sidebar for kindergarten and first and click here for 4th grade wiki and 5th grade wikis). I have room for student and parent resources, homework, What we did Today (for absent students or parents), grade-level skills, favorite links. You can even add student pages, created by students. This is very popular.
