Two Great Links Added to Webpage

Two great web links have been added under the parent/teacher link located along the left hand side of the Coyote Valley Elementary School webpage.  Spelling City and Khan Academy are both free and have both been added to help parents and students with homework.  Spelling City allows spelling words to be entered and then creates online practice games, activities and quizzes using those words.  A pay version is available to families, but the free version has a lot of great activities as well.  The Khan Academy offers video tutorials on a number of topics.  Originally developed by educator Salman Khan as Youtube clips to help tutor his young cousin in Math, Khan academy is now one of the fastest growing educational resources being funded by donors like the Gates foundation and Google.  The original focus of the tutorials was math, but they have expanded to include science, social science as well as other topics.  If you need help with a concept in math simply visit the site and search your topic.
