Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 9/10/21

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!

Note: Each resource is labeled with a level and subject area to make it easier to use.

Levels: E: Elementary; M: Middle; H: High; G: General, all levels; SN: Special Needs; T: Teachers

Subject Areas: LA: Language Arts, English, Reading, Writing; M: Math; S: Science; Health; SS: Social Studies, Current Events; FA: Fine Arts; Music, Art, Drama; FL: Foreign Language; PE: Physical Ed; C: Career; A: All

Travel Posters - “content that is free to use and reuse.” (L:G,;SA:A)

Classroom Posters - “Print and post a set of early childhood posters to support your young learners. From counting 1-10, to identifying feelings, to naming the days of the week, you can leverage these PBS KIDS posters at Circle Time in Centers, and to support a school-to-home connection.” (L:E,;SA:A)

Math Sites That Won't Make You Fall Asleep - “Resources for teachers to use with students. Curated by Terri Eichholz.” (L:G,;SA:M)

Getting Unstuck - “ Getting Unstuck is a 10-module intermediate Scratch curriculum to help your students develop greater creative and conceptual fluency with code. The curriculum reimagines the classroom as a design studio: a culture of learning in which students explore, create, share, and reflect. Get started with the curriculum by reading the orientation, then explore the modules.” (L:E,M,;SA:A)

The Traveling Salesman Problem - “The Traveling Salesman Problem is one of the most intensively studied problems in computational mathematics. These pages are devoted to the history, applications, and current research of this challenge of finding the shortest route visiting each member of a collection of locations and returning to your starting point.” (L:G,;SA:M)
