Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 9/30/11

tools2Here 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!

Music Notation Training – Practice naming the notes.

Homestyler – Create your own home designs.

How to Do Research – Great infographic on the steps to doing research.

ZisBoomBah – “We've created ZisBoomBah to help educate kids and parents about food in an easy and fun way that all ages can understand. We do this by providing free food games, tools and information that is both fun and educational. Our USDA Award winning game Pick Chow! Plate features a plate where kids create meals by drag and drop food choices from all the USDA food groups. In order to achieve the highest star ratting possible, kids must create a balanced nutritious meal. After they have finished with their selections they can save their meals and we'll send the recipe off to their parents! It's truly a great way to get kids involved with cooking while giving them the knowledge to make smart food choices. Kid friendly meals have become that much easier to create!”

Faux Flash – online flash cards
