Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 04/011/08

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found interesting this week. 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!

The Ultimate Multiplication Tables Video Game is a “A cross between Quake (without the violence) and Myst, players must solve multiplication equations to defeat monsters and get around the cave.”

Starfall “is a popular Web site for new or struggling readers. It uses Flash-based movies and interactive games to help kids learn phonics, vowel sounds, and other reading basics. In addition to word recognition, Starfall also teaches kids to read with tone, inflection, and expression.”

The Periodic Table of Elements – “These colorful, fun, and informative periodic tables are great for elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as adults.”

Pink Monkey – “Over 450 Free Study Guides/Book Notes/Book Reviews/Online Chapter Summary/Notes/Analysis for literature titles.”

Technology Assisting Literacy Knowledge – great lesson on making predictions
