I finally found what I have been looking for. Thank Scholastic! It was a bit of a task signing up for it, but it is exactly what i was looking for and I'm sure many if not all of you will benefit from setting up an account. It allows you to set up a free class homepage that can be accessed by your students and their parents from home.
You just need to Click Here then create an account. Creating the homepage is quite simple too. I encourage all teachers and teachers to be to create an account and have a go. What a wonderful way of keeping parents up to date with classroom happenings, as well as a way of posting homework, fun bits and pieces, and just connecting the classroom with home. I am so glad I found this!!
