We’ve all done it; spent hours creating words and sentences on the refrigerator with brightly colored letter magnets. Now we’re turning your computer into the refrigerator and teaching students critical language arts skills:

  • Phonics
  • Phonemic Awareness (rhyming and sound play)
  • Spelling
  • Word Study

Warning: At Connections Academy schools learning is fun and addictive. See for yourself!

Grammar Tool

Superheroes teaching grammar concepts? It's true with this highly engaging and creative tool, grammar gets a whole new spin that makes kids excited to learn. The tool allows language arts students to:

  • Analyze by identifying a particular grammatical concept by highlighting appropriate parts of sentences
  • Build sentences by adding to an existing sentence stem by using sentence parts in a word bank
  • Create sentences that demonstrate their knowledge of grammar concepts

Hints along the way help students become grammar heroes and a grammar handbook is also included so students can gather more powerful knowledge.
