Websites for the Classroom
1. I love using Wallwisher with my kids! Teachers can create an account for free and create walls. Students can post short messages on the wall on "sticky notes". You can set it so that you have to approve each post before it shows up on the wall. The best part is, they don't have to remember any log-in info! I used this to have the kids post short reviews of the chapter books they read. Here's a screen shot of one of those walls!
2. We use Spelling City at my school, and my students use it at home, so it has to be on the list! We can add our weekly spelling lists to the site and the kids can practice by playing games at school or at home!
3. Waltke's Web is a great website for teachers who use the Scott Foresman Reading Street Series! There are lots of resources to print and use and links to websites that are related to the stories.
You Tube Videos for the Classroom
1. "The Tale of Mr. Morton" and all of the other School House Rock videos! I love School House Rock, and my kids really like it too! "The Tale of Mr. Morton" is a video we watched about subjects and predicates.
