FuriouslyCurious Is Complete!

Friday, February/02/2009


I’ve known for a while that there are teachers who don’t teach 3rd grade that still like to use the resources on

So that older kids won’t feel slighted by working on “3rd grade” activities, I created a sister site that has no mention of grade level or achievement level.  It’s called and it has lots of cool features that are sure to be a hit with kids and teachers.

  • For a little fun, users can select one of four color schemes to suit their own tastes
  • The navigation is much easier to work and creates an opportunity to more easily meet different teaching objectives
  • Printable flash cards are now available for each song. This is a real time saver when  you need a ready way to help students who are struggling to “get it”
  • There is also an “Easy Read” feature that makes the lyrics bigger. In this view, the lyrics absolutely dominate the page. No more problems for the kids in the back of the room!

Go check it out when you get a chance.

Take me to!
