Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 10/16/09

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!

Place Spotting – a google map quiz game. You can solve those made by others or you can make your own for your class.

Scholastic Word Wizard Vocab Word Quiz Maker – add up to 25 words; even puts in a word bank

Get Body Smart – “Visually Learn About the Human Body Using Our Interactive "Flash" Animations.” There are tutorials and quizzes.

Reading Logs – “gives students a better way to track reading, create vocabulary cards and practice spelling. Learning material is uploaded by teachers and is accessed online by students in their class. Once the material is online, it is brought to life with our learning tools:
Electronic Reading Logs
Vocabulary Card Creator
Listen and Spell practice system

Map Puzzles – “Free Online Map Puzzles, no downloading, no installation - PC or Mac!”
