The Teacher's Hub

My new favorite resource is the blog, www.theteachershub.com. This blog is dedicated to helping teachers integrate web 2.0 in the classroom. Thank you Todd for helping me find it!Todd suggested I become a fan on Facebook so I did. As I explored the blog for a few minutes I found out about really neat and useful resources! Two sites I found out about on the blog and have started using regularly in my classroom are:
1. www.oneword.com. It is a one word writing prompt that you write about for just one minute. So far we have been doing them as a writing warm-up. The students have been enjoying it and writing some creative beginnings.
2. www.gameclassroom.com. This site is designed for K-6 educators and has a wealth of educational games categorized and described with links. I used to search through many websites looking for fun learning games to engage students with what I was currently teaching them or for review. Not anymore! Now I go there first and find many awesome activities!
Has anyone else been using The Teacher's Hub or any other neat sites?

Emily,

Those Aussie's are on top of Web 2.0, this is a great blog. Thanks Todd. Emily, will you be sharing any of your students' oneword creations?

Hi Emily,
Thank you for the suggested site. I do like what I have seen for 6th grade, but just wish there were more language arts games for them.
Have you checked out internet4classrooms.com? It is organized by grade level and has some amazing activities.

Thank you for the resources Emily! There are a few games on the Game Classroom I have used in the past and the kids really enjoy them. I look forward to using more of the games with my students. The Teacher's Hub could be a great resource as well. There are many technology applications I had not heard about until I read about them on The Teacher's Hub.

Thanks for the suggestion Penny. Dave, I can share some one word creations! I'll have my students post them on our classroom blog. Good idea.
