Got Research????

Thanks Richard Byrne at Free Technology for Teachers for this terrific link. If you are teaching your kids to research this is a great resource for you and for them.

Wall Wisher

This is an easy tool for you to use on your UEN site for kids to answer questions- or to use in class or the lab...



Hope you are all having a great end-of-summer week. Technology in the building is still random. The labs are up and functioning and I was able to print a few things. Try to be kind to the “ink budget”.
Anyone interested in some re-fresher time, let me know. I’m sure the tech department will be around to tell us all how to log into our computers since all of our log-in and passwords will have been changed.
 If you are still “shopping” my Blogger-friend, Crystal, over at “Surviving a Teacher’s Salary”; http://www.survivingateacherssalary.com/ has posted all of the popular sale prices for cool teacher stuff. Great Give-aways too.
Then, Richard @ Free Technology For Teachers has a list of seven places to get free stuff and free money for teachers: http://www.freetech4teachers.com/2011/08/7-places-to-get-free-supplies-or-money.html
And there is also the Pets-In-The-Classroom grant that I posted last year: http://www.petsintheclassroom.org/ - This one will help with direct costs of having a pet in the classroom. Not a bad deal, if you have an existing pet or want to get one.
See you all next week!
