Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 1/9/09

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. 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!

Scholastic Videos - links to great teaching resources

Free Math Help – “math lessons, math games, and a math help message board” – free audio stories for children. “Storynory is an online treasure trove of audio stories. Here you will find a mixture of new stories, fairy tales, and specially adapted myths and histories. We also have a sprinkling of verse.

Nine – great tour of the solar system. “This website is an overview of the history, mythology, and current scientific knowledge of the planets, moons and other objects in our solar system. Each page has…text and NASA's images, some have sounds and movies, most provide references to additional related information.”

Awesome Library - organizes the Web with 36,000 carefully reviewed resources, including the top 5 percent in education.

Great tips. I find storynory great in my classroom for kids to listen to while they eat lunch. I look forward to exploring the math and planets links. Thanks for sharing.
