Anyone who knows me knows that I love grammar! That is why I am so excited to share with you this big list of free language arts learning sites & apps.
I am actually a Secondary English teacher by trade. I wanted to teach English because of the experience I had growing up.
The only class where I remember anything at all is language arts. I remember learning some rules about grammar. I literally can’t remember any other class except English classes – for whatever reason.
When I got to college, I realized that I didn’t know much about anything. I wanted to learn how to write well, so I thought I would go all in — a major in English it was.
I ended up loving it; my brain couldn’t get enough. From learning different genres to writing essays, I was eager to teach kids my passion.
Only one of my children got the Language Arts bug like me, but I still make it fun for the other two. One of the ways I try to shake things up is by using different websites and apps to keep them engaged and interested.
