Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 07/11/08

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found interesting this week. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

The Ultimate Guide to Special Needs Teaching: 100+ Resources and Links – “this massive list of resources will help you research different disorders and conditions, review special lesson plans, and find the support you need to work with your students and help them succeed.”

Toondoo is a comic creating tool for kids (and adults too!)

National Library of Virtual Manipulativesa is a “library of uniquely interactive, web-based virtual manipulatives or concept tutorials, mostly in the form of Java applets, for mathematics instruction (K-12 emphasis).”

NASA for educators – great resource for teaching materials on different topics.

26 Learning Games to Change the World – great list of free learning games that can be used in the classroom.

I checked out the Ultimate Guide to SPED link - great stuff!

And, the games link was amazing! I'm addicted to free rice.com. I love that you test your vocabulary and help to feed people around the world. I spread the word to my English colleagues and they told their students who are now addicted to the web site too!

Great stuff again. :-) Thank you for posting the links every week.
