The author of this paper has created a website that will be used with his fifth grade students entitled The Fifth Grade Website ( The goal of the website is to enhance the educational experience of the students who use it. The website was designed in a way that would allow students to easily use it without any of the common errors that are found in many sites. Students can visit school related websites, practice math facts, and complete assignments simply by accessing the Fifth Grade Website. This website uses the power and resources of the Internet to create an educational website that can be used by students to enhance their learning experiences.
