1. This week's first resource is an email template. You can use it to have the students have two characters from a story communicate with each other. Or someone from history could ask a question about today and the student could respond to explain how the person's actions influenced events of today.
2. Resource 2 is called Roll it, Make it, Expand it. I tweaked a free worksheet from TPT. I added drag and drop base ten blocks and a link to an interactive dice page which is ad free and perfect for primary grades.
3. Read, Write, Think is an old website but since it has stayed around it has to be good, right? Actually, it is one of my favorites! They have a ton of student interactives! If you have forgotten about this site and haven't visited it in awhile or if you have never visited, it would be a great place to spend some time and just browse.
4. This site is for Preschool and Kindergarten. I have had a few requests for kid friendly sites. Try Cookie! After all, who doesn't like cookies?
5. Friday at the Movies-Interesting!!
6. Gail Moore sent me this site and asked me to check it out and send it out. Since we are closing in on the end of the first nine weeks you will definitely want to look at this free site which allows you to create a Jeopardy style game. Thank you Gail for sharing Jeopardy Rocks!
_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.

I know only one thing about the technology that awaits us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with it. ~Jason Ohler
