Filin' Away

It's astounding to me how many AMAZING resources are at our fingertips...and for free! I should really take the time to "play" with these tools a bit more.

Below are some great new tools I got at an Ed Tech conference last week. They all help with file sharing, file conversions, etc. I really hope they come in handy! Enjoy, and Happy Leap Day!

Would You Like to Take a Survey?

There are so many different online tools and apps available for administering and taking surveys. I learned of some of these at the Ed Tech conference that I attended last week. I hope these are of use to many of you!

Student Favorites

Everytime we have an earned Game Day in the Computer Lab, the students seem to gravitate towards many of the same websites. Some of them are more educational than others, but they are all school appropriate. 
I thought I would share what some of their favorites happen to be:


Cool Math

Mini Mouse

Garfield's Scary Scavenger Hunt

Oh the Finds That We Find!

Dr. Seuss's Birthday is coming up in a few weeks. I really enjoy that day, because it gives me a REAL excuse to read some Seuss. (Not that I really need one since I have young kids of my own, and I enjoy a good Seuss book every now and then!)

I was trying to think ahead as to how I could incorporate Seuss into the Computer Lab. I thought about reading each grade level a different Dr. Seuss book, then coming up with a supplemental, technology integrated activity.

I don't simply want to just utilize the Seussville website, even though it's Great! However, it takes too much time to load on the students' computers.

I did find the following resources, but I am also open for some more suggestions. I teach K-5 Computers. Suggestions, comments, or resources can be suggested through my Facebook page by clicking HERE.

Thanks for the help, and enjoy the resources below!

Live Binders

I love this bookmarking site!! I feel it is easy to use and is well organized. Plus, you can search for other people's binders and get some really fantastic resources! Below I am sharing the links to my Live Binders as well as a few other binders that are fitting for the season. Enjoy!

Math Mania!

It's time for some great Math resources! Some are holiday related, so I hope that they are useful in the coming weeks.

By the way, The Groundhog saw his Shadow today, so 6 more weeks of Winter. I certainly don't believe it based on the mild Winter we've been having here in Missouri, but who knows.

Anyway, enjoy the Math freebies! Happy Groundhog Day, too!
