One of the things I do a lot of is to forward on to teachers via email internet sites that I think might be useful to them. I found this one recently through though the LM_Net listserve and will pass it on to teachers.
Vicki Blackwell’s Internet Guide for Educators has a plethora of resources for teachers to use in the classroom. It is updated seasonally with games, lessons and activities appropriate to the season. At the moment there is a fabulous clearing house of links under the “Christmas Around the World”, “Gingerbread”, “Christmas” and “December Days” images on the front page.
The purpose of this website is to provide a resource for the teachers of Tangipahoa Parish School System and teachers all around the world, as they continue to incorporate the use of technology into the curriculum. You will find my favorite links in the”Blackwell’s Best” section. “The Classroom” has links to staff development materials and technology integration activities as well as tutorials for some of my favorite software. The “Tech Tips” page includes hints to help you become a more efficient technology-using educator, and the “TangiTech” section is devoted to our professional development programs for integration of technology into the curriculum.
There are many wonderful resources and activities here for all year ’round. Some that I will be referring to myself or passing on to my teachers are: 100th Day of School, Children’s Literature and Authors, Just for Kids, and a great collection of Printables.
