SBG and Online Resources

We are two weeks into the year and SBG seems to be going well so far.  It's a little early to really tell, though.  Something I am doing that I hope will be helpful is having a large number of resources available online for students who will be retaking standards as the year goes on.  If you've been reading this blog, you know I have an online textbook with embedded video and that I post my class notes from the SMART Board online.  I'm also using FlexMath for practice and I hope to be incorporating BrainGenie shortly as well.  I'm hoping that students will be able to use these resources for self study to improve their skills prior to taking a quiz on a concept that was covered in class previously.  Don't get me wrong, I am all over providing extra help if they need it, but it would be nice if they could also do some independent study.
