Dun-dun-DUN!!! Yes, one of my top sites is featured today! I wish I had known more about this site when I was in my own classroom. It would have helped with differentiation so much. It is Khan Academy. This entirely FREE website was started by a man, Salman Khan, that wanted to help his cousin with her education. He then started creating videos on YouTube, and this took off so quickly that he was able to turn it into a full website.
Students, teachers, and parents can access his FREE videos via YouTube or the website. Subjects offered include:
Students can work through a course, doing questions, watching videos when needed, and completing courses. This is ideal when you have students who need lower level work, reinforcement, or enrichment.
Here is an example of one of the videos
If you want to have assistance with using these videos in your classroom, let me know! I would love to help!
