Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 11/8/19

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!

Literature Quote Bingo – “The students must match famous quotes to news stories, which is a great way to demonstrate understanding of the quotes and make connections to real world events.” (L:H;SA:SS)

The 75th anniversary of D-Day – “Commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day and embark on a virtual transatlantic adventure to the sites where D-Day history was made. Guided by student reporters from the United States, England, Canada, and France, this journey will provide insights into the greatest amphibious invasion in history, in only one hour. Your students will discover the lessons and legacies of Operation Overlord as they explore the coast of southern England, the iconic invasion sites in Normandy, France, and participate in a special remembrance at the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach.” (L:H;SA:SS)

Colds, The Flu, and You – SciShow Kids; “When the weather starts to get cool, a lot of people start to get sick. So what’s making people sick and how can you avoid falling ill? Join Jessi and Squeaks to find out!” (L:E;SA:S)

Illustrated Vocabulary Lesson – as seen on Free Technology for Teachers; “ All of the activities in the PDF follow the same format. That format is to display a familiar word with a familiar sound highlighted in it. Then below that word students will see illustrations that correspond to similar sounding words. Finally, the illustrations are followed by a worksheet on which students try to spell the words that are represented by illustrations.” (L:E;SA:LA)

Speaking and Listening Skills – “Perfect your verbal communication skills, formal and informal speaking, presentation skills and listening for specifics. (L:M,H;SA:A)
