1. I love the Photographic Dictionary! This would be an amazing site to booster that vocabulary.
2. This is a great way to structure a student's day if you are trying to go paperless. This is not mine. It was sent to me by a Twitter-Friend. If you go to file and then make a copy you can alter it to suit your classroom.
3. This teacher's blog is filled with lots of free modeled Google lessons. I absolutely adore the Emoji lessons where the students use Emojis to create rebus stories. She has several of these lessons. I would give my right arm to come in and help you if you wanted to plan something like this! With a bit of tweaking, this could be done as young as kindergarten but could extend all the way up to high school. Plus, we could incorporate internet safety into the lesson as well.
4. Check out A Google A Day. I would use this as an opening the day exercise for students if I were still in the classroom. A Google A Day provides a new puzzle each day. There is only one right answer but there could be several ways to work the problem.
5. Friday at the Movies - I saw this on Facebook last weekend and sent it to a friend of mine. I thought that the rest of you may enjoy it too!
_Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools,
located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to
work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work
with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus,
I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
