Writing my way through the school year!

I’ve decided that every 5 new tools I “discover”, I will not only post them on my blog, but I will also update my “Word of Mouth” Livebinder.  Hopefully, some of these tools will be useful to you as well.

Children’s Books Forever! – I found this one on ilearn Technology, always a great source for the coolest sites ever! Those of you with IWBs will love this site. Digital  FREE childrens books, classics and favorites, that can be viewed on IWBs, Powerpoints, or overhead projectors.  The quality of these books is not shabby either! I already sent the link to the lower grades in my school.

National Archives Experience- Digital Vaults –  (iLearn Technology) Do you teach SS?  Are you always in need of primary sources? All I can say is Wow! I am teaching the Civil War and I got lost in this site and what you can do with it. If you want to make history rea,l utilizing primary sources, this site is it. It’s a digital vault that you can control, you can choose the pics you want and then create a poster or movie. Excellent site!

Reading Rewards.com – (Edmodo community) I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand Reading logs. “Read for 20 minutes and write it down.” BORING! Here is a way to spice up your reading logs, it’s gone digital! And it’s not just a Reading log, they have social networking, K-12 Teacher Tools, and Reading Rewards!

thatquiz – (HP TeacherExchange) – Math test activities for students and teachers. Online interactive quizzes in a number of subjects.You can set up a class home page and administer your tests from there, or give the students the test code of the assigned test. You can create your own tests; matching, multiple choice , and slides.

Bizworld:The Bizworld Foundation (Sean Murray) I learned about this from one of my readers, the Education Coordinator for Bizworld.  If you are looking for a program that provides real world financial literacy and entrepreneurship, this is it! It’s for grades 3-8, and it’s broken down into three kits, BizWorld,  BizWiz, and  BizMovie.  Each kit provides the kids hands-on activities to promote that goal, and it looks like a lot of fun!  BizWorld focuses on business and enterpreneurship, BizWiz, money management, and BizMovie, technology and entrepreneurship. I am excited about using  BizWiz with my class this year!
