I am known in my school to be the "website girl". I am always sending teachers or my instructional coaches websites I run across, so I have decided that every Wednesday I will post one or more wonderful websites! Some you may have heard of and some maybe not. Either way the information is getting out there.
One wonderful website I came across while making my plans for review week (review forstate testing...arg!) is Study Jams. It is absolutely free and very similar to BrainPop! This website is full of math and science videos. I watched a few: photosynthesis, combinations, solar system, water cycle, etc.. Love it! I can't wait to watch one as a transition into a review game.
Another website I am absolutely in love with is Learner.org. There are amazing videos of teachers k-2 and 3-5 teaching reading and writing. I love to see how other teachers "teach" and the language they use.
So here is the link for k-2 reading Learner.org K-2
*muy importante- scroll down...click on the VoD box on the right hand of the video description, then go up to your internet tools and the pop up blocker thingy might come on...hit the X. THEN go back down to the VoD box and click again.
Link for 3-5 reading Learner.org 3-5
Link for 3-5 Writing Learner.org 3-5 writing
So I hope ya'll have a wonderful Wednesday! If you have any other website suggestions, please feel free to post them!
