Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 6/11/10

tools2 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!

Timesavers for Teachers – “TIMESAVERS for TEACHERS specializes in printable, often-used classroom forms, report card comments, spelling activities, practical teacher tools, worksheets and downloadable teaching materials designed to save teachers valuable time.”

Ology – this is a really cool web site for kids created by the American Museum of Natural History.

The Elements Song – song about the elements in the periodic table

The Biochemists Songbook mp3 files - songs about different science processes

The Tale of Despereaux – a story where you (or someone you know) is part of the story

Um...
Your Timesavers for Teachers link goes to adorabubble knits. And while I love an adorable knit as much as the next knitter, these really wouldn't be a timesaver for me. At least not now. Fixy linky? Pretty pleasey?

Hello. I tried clicking on the link of Timesavers for Teachers and a knitting link came up instead. :-)

Just wanted to give you a heads up :=)

Thanks for posting these wonderful links every Friday. I've used a ton of them over the past year.

Hope you are enjoying your summer. We are still in school here in New England (I get out on June 23rd).

@Liz @Lori I'm so sorry for the glitch! Please forgive me! I've fixed the link! Thanks so much for letting me know and for reading my blog! (I'm camping in the Smokies and this is the first time I've been able to get on the internet so I haven't been able to check the links. Shhh! Don't tell. LOL) Thanks again!
