    Check out a Wikispace called HOT and Thinkertools, on Higher Order Thinking with lots of graphic organizers. 

     web tools for kids


    Billed as a site for students who finish their work early, can be used in other ways as well. You'll get lost as will the students. So many links to look at. Includes field trips, audio stories, art, etc.


    You've got to check out this site! What an awesome resource with lots of subjects and tons of links.  Be prepared to spend hours searching through it.

    TONS of resources for the classroom. I especially LOVE all the videos that are available to help kids learn concepts!

    The wiki above is a lot like the wiki below except it's made by librarians for librarians but teachers may find some interesting "tidbits" there too!

    cool tool for schools

    Teacher Book Wizard TM
    FIND and LEVEL books for students Quick! Easy! Books from all publishers!
    Click here for the virtual tour (or the graphic above to go directly to the site) of Scholastic's new search tool that allows  you to match the "right children's books to your students." FAQ's about theTeacher Book Wizard can be found here . Check it out, it looks to be very helpful with lots of different options available. 


    All Teacher Websites

      Save time, use "Google" to search for results only from teacher-related websites!

    I consider this one of the best sites on the web. It has a list of subjects that include "Make and Take books", templates for teachers, special education and speech therapy. Click here for the list. Her homepage includes "blackwell's best" but also has a "TechTips" and "The Classroom" and "TangiTech" which has loads of information on some of the workshops she's given . Spend some time exploring, I guarantee it'll be one of your favorite bookmarks!

    If you haven't seen the link on the homepage for this site, you are missing the most AWESOME site ever! It not only combines themes with powerpoints but includes online activities and some teacher resources. Click on the graphic above to see it. Also included are just powerpoints, by clicking here, you'll get there. And, free clipart that looks like the above character here . Don't forget to look at Greta's Games , another link off this site. Grab a cup of coffee, a sandwich, whatever and be prepared to surf for hours!!!!
