Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 6/19/09

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my Personal Learning Network (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!

Eat that Frog – very motivational, short movie

Dragonfly – like Google Sketchup but it is online. “Dragonfly's intuitive design tools to rapidly create and furnish your floor plan, experimenting in real time with your ideas in 2D and 3D before making it real!”

Catch the Spelling – practice spelling and reviewing vocabulary

Construct A Word – you get to choose an ending and then it gives you letters to add to the ending to make words. It lets you know if there is a word or not. Then it gives you the list of words. It is good for students who are working on decoding.

National Geographic Atlas Jigsaw Puzzles – There are different ones to put together.

Thanks for sharing these links and great ideas. I like the way you describe our responsibilities as teachers to keep up to date. From your blog, I do get inspired, informed, and challenged with questions! Thanks!
