Science Videos and other stuff....

The Wild Classroom currently has a video that features Moab on its start page! This site is all about our wild world. It contains both short podcasts and longer videos: ecology-based biology and biodiversity videos and activities. Pretty Cool!
For those of you with an iPad or Touch here is an app with APPS ~KINDERTOWN: An app store for kinder parents or grandparents so you can find REALLY good apps to put on your device for the younger kids that are not just games. Touted to be all educational and reviewed by educators.

Simple Science Videos from Free Tech4 Teachers short, kinda dorky, but memorable songs and videos for science
TENMARKS: an online math supplement for your curriculum: You do need to create an account but it is free. I haven’t checked for ads.

WIRED TO LEARN: This is a CONTEST to win $25,000 for our school. We would need one person to write a 500 word essay on why we need the technology and then get people to vote for our essay. Small schools have won these kinds of contests by utilizing their social network connections of every person in their schools and getting the local news involved… any takers????

I would like to share this video on sharing with others that I got from Richard Byrne’s site (where I get a lot of sites and inspiration ~ Thanks Richard!). He got this from somewhere else, but that is the whole point of sharing…..


So this time I'm going to give you some math sites that have been rattling around in my bookmarks. ENJOY!

WOW! This site is amazing. Much of the site is free downloads to enhance whatever it is you are currently teaching. I was looking for activities on Problems Solving and Math Journaling this weekend and hit the jackpot. They have a download for math journaling that looks incredible. I am getting it today. (It does cost $7.00 however). If you are interested in seeing it, let me know.
They also have a monthly newsletter that you can subscribe to. This site has incredible amounts of information on “Guided Math”. This is like teaching with centers or rotations. Great Ideas and things to print and use.
