Great Bookmarking Tools

We all know that Pinterest is an AMAZING resource for educators. I know it definitely "sucks me in"! 

However, there are so many more bookmarking tools out that are also very helpful for Educators! 

My favorite one to use is Live Binders. I have created at least 4 of these binders so far (see my page on this blog). Their site is very user friendly and easy to organize. My students also find it easy to use. Not to mention, you also have the ability to find so many other amazing binders on their site as well. 

Previously, I used iKeepBookmarks. While this site is also fairly easy to use and organize, I stopped using it because it seemed as if the site either crashed too often or would "freeze up" as I was editing. However, for the most part, it is still a very good bookmarking tool. 

Below I am including a few more handing Bookmarking tools. If you have any others that you have used and also prefer, please let me know! Enjoy!

Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but vacations always go by way too fast! I only have 2 full weeks left of Summer after this week, before I have to report back to work on August 6th.

Summer, please SLOW DOWN!

I don't know about the rest of you, but I cannot believe it is Mid-July already! I only have 3 full weeks of Summer Vacation left after this week. :-(
With that said, I am definitely thinking ahead to the next school year, even though I don't really want to be thinking about vacation ending. 
I teach elementary computers and I have been looking up neat ideas to help organize and "spruce up" the computer lab for next year. 
Below are some links to many ideas that I have found so far, but I am also open for input as well! 
Feel free to share ideas/tips below or via my Facebook or Twitter pages. 
2012-2013 will be my 8th year of teaching at the elementary level, but only my 2nd in the computer lab. I am looking forward to another great year!

Quick Side Note

Hello, everyone!!
I want to apologize for the lack of posts lately. We went on a quick road trip for the 4th of July. Then, it's been nothing but MLB All Star Week fun here in Kansas City!
I am an MLB All Star Fan Fest volunteer. It's been a pretty neat experience for this Royals baseball fan!
There have been many freebies involved and there are more to come! I work my last shift (of 3 total) tomorrow, then on Tuesday I am taking my kiddos to the MLB All Star parade. It's going to be a blast! 
I will get back on track after the All Star break. For now, enjoy a few pics from our All Star weekend of fun!
