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?
