Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 7/16/10

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!

Quiz Tree - educational games and quizzes on many subjects, including Math, Reading, Spanish, Geography, SAT, Spelling, Music and more. All activities come with animated interface, fun sounds and other cool features that make learning more enjoyable.

Learning Chocolate – “This web site aims to help students to memorize English vocabulary in an easy and efficient way, by using pictures, sounds and games. Try our games and enjoy learning, like eating chocolate.”

Literacyhead – “resources for creative, engaging, standards based lessons using the visual arts to teach literacy.”

Your Next Read – book recommendations; you type in a book that you like and it will suggest others that you might enjoy.

Word Games – I love word games and enjoy finding free fun ones online.
