Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 8/29/08

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 Best Online Learning Games 2008 – some of the criteria the author used to make the list was that it had to be accessible to English Language Learners, provide exceptionally engaging content, not provide access to other non-educational games on their site.

Free Multiplication Bingo Game – supplies the template for the board to be used

Educational Jargon Generator – “This fine academic tool was designed to assist in the writing of reports, grant applications, and other documents related to public schools...Amaze your colleagues with finely crafted phrases of educational nonsense!”

K-8 Math Games – there is a big selection of math games to choose from.

Facts4me - an online reference tool for primary readers of English. This site is written by teachers and is committed to offering high-quality, educationally-sound information in an ad-free, child-safe environment.
