Restructured Links - July 2001

  • Fun Stuff

    • The Hampster Dance
      All .

      Takes a while to load because of interactive program. This is a delightful website. The advertising gets in the way, but you can scroll away from it. Be sure to click on Control the Hamsters! Then you can move the individual hamsters all over the page. Explore the whole site.

  • Math game to refresh your decimals and fractions. The squares change every time you play the game. Good practice with decimals and fractions, and good training in remembering what's behind the covered squares. I finally got down to only needing to uncover squares 16 times to win and see the whole picture. That was down from 22. How well can you do? jeanne

  • The Hole Truth A Think Quest Site on Louis Sachar's Holes. Holes is one of the alternate books you may choose to read.

  • Stories and Coloring Pages

    • The Goblin . . . Disappeared!
      Young .

      With coloring page. Larger type, and a simple click to look up humungous in the Merriam-Webster online dictionary.

    • The Farmer and the Snake: An Aesop Fable
      Middle and Up

      This Aesop Fable is fun to read. There are pictures to draw and color, pictures in which we do not have to color within the lines. And then there is social justice to discuss, and many related links.

    BACK to Dear Habermas Home

    Welcome to all the kids related to, or friends of, the Dear Habermas Site. Our theme is fairness and justice for all, and we spend most of our time on these pages talking about how we can do a better job of making this a better world.

    • We share Stories of WHAT IS fair?

      • We send our own stories to the Site.
      • We write stories together, each adding to the other's ideas

    • We share POEMS and ART.

      • Sometimes our poems are on how we feel about fairness.
      • Sometimes they're just on how we feel.
      • Sometimes our art shows how we feel about justice.
      • Sometimes our art just shows how we feel.

    • We wonder what we can do

      • To make others hear us.
      • To help others hear each other.

    VISIT The Little Red Hen who fears the sky is falling.

    Chantessy's GIFS

    Chantessy GIFS are the hearts at the top of the page, and the bar just above. The blinking colored heart is Chantessy's first animated gif. Chantessy's award-winning site on Geocities led me to discover many of the graphics for the KIDS site, as we await the graphics you are all going to send in for the KIDS' Page.

    Who IS Chantessy?

    Meet Chantessy

    VISIT Chantessy's Page of Fun! Be sure to see her Activity Center, her art work, her links!

    The bar above is one of Chantessy's, as are the hearts at the top of this page. Visit her site! I linked to her art and found myself playing with
    her puzzle of the mermaid
    . Right in the middle of creating our KIDS' page! Hope you have as much fun as I did. (If you get lost on the way to the mermaid puzzle, follow Chantessy's Homepage link to all 47 of her icons. Then look for the icon of her slide puzzles.) Jeanne

    And then visit Chantessy's Mom's Page, Rafi's Place, which is where the violin playing cat can be found. Following Rafi's site, I found this count-down button!

    Click on Soccer and you will find the Fitzweb Site that will let you add your own personalized count-down buttons. Or check out the Year 2000 countdown button on the page with the worm crawling on and on and on . . . Just look at all the fun things you can do if you get your own free Geocities Site! The winking kitty came from Geocities Sites, too, and the butterfly from the Artistic Lady's Site at Geocities.

    If you want to use the graphics that are free for your personal Web page, remember to upload them to your own site, and then to acknowledge them. Graphics artists make this work available so that the Web will be a colorful, exciting, animated and musical place. Help them keep it that way. Click on the animated Web button for an essay that explains why you must load the graphics to your own site.

    Visit also the L.A. Times Summer Program for KIDS Be sure to visit Adventures in Art I had a wonderful time with the Metropolitan Museum's Art Game, Level 1, offered, I presume for the youngest and/or least sophisticated. Maybe this would be a good alternative to one more cup of coffee this summer!

    Anyone recognize our background? There is a textual pattern on the KIDS' Site and on Dear Habermas. As we restructured the site, I lost track of the backgrounds. I believe these two may have come from a Geocities Site that requests acknowledgment. One of the files uses the designation "ashz," and, as I recall, the "ash" was part of a last name, As soon as the Site is up, I'll go out on the Web and hunt for the source, but if you know what it is, and see this, please e-mail me so I can acknowledge the backgrounds. Jeanne.
