I am sure that this has been addressed before but I am going to set up a webpage (simple, post homework, weekly news, etc.) What would you recommend that I use? Thanks so much!!

Website has a free classroom website template. It is easy to lay out and you can inocorporate classroom pictures in it..... I have used teacherweb in the past but had to pay to use it. I have a family photo website set up through shutterfly and loved the ease of it... so I am giving the classroom website a try. There are other list members using it as well.
Good Luck!

Just set one up for myself on google sites. It's free and easy to use. You can see mine at

me too
I just posted something similar on the busy board. I started playing with Shutterfly and it seems pretty easy. That means I must be doing something wrong. I just want to know what are must haves for the websites. I don't want to become overwhelmed with making it too big. Any and all suggestions are appreicated.

I use shutterfly and love it. It is easy to use and edit. Plus I like that it emails parents when you update it.
As for what I have on my site that I would recommend it would have to be my spelling list for the year. I typed it up in a word document and added it to the site for parents to be able to download and/or print. I have had SOO many parents tell me how much they appriciated that. (as a parent myself I wish that my daughters' teachers would do it too.) I also include vocabulary word for reading and study guides/powerpoints for science and social studies. I don't update it often, so the things I have on there are things that can be used from year to year. It takes some time in the beginning to get set up, but is worth it later. I hope this helps! My site is www.mrscox4thgrade.shutterfly.c om

When using a blog can parents post to it?

I use Schoolrack as do most of our Elementary teachers. Don't know what our Middle School uses.

I have used Teacherweb for several years and have found nothing else that is comparable. Try it free for 30 days...after that, it's $39 a year. Pretty cheap considering everything they offer!! :0)

I'll send you a private message so you can see mine.

:0) soon as you get enough posts to have PMsgs enabled, I'll send it.
