Another Great Resource... or three

TeachersFirst is a great resource site. Once a week they send out a newsletter for amazing education websites. This month they are featuring a very adaptable lesson on Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree; and a December Calendar page that has lots of ideas for holidays, anniversaries, seasonal events, and more. Each week also has a Featured Sites list with some of “best of the web” educational sites for all grade levels and subject areas.
TeachersFirst also offers self-directed Professional Development in their OK2ASK section. If you find something here you would like to follow through on, remember to talk to your administrator about getting credit for it. As of last year, online PD was being accepted on a limited basis in Grand County.
You do have to become a member (For FREE) if you want to sign up for the newsletter. This is the link to the website TEACHERSFIRST
Someone asked me about THE HAT again… it’s a little program that draws kids’ names randomly…. You download it to your desktop. The kids love it: The Hat ; and the collection of desktop timers is here:  5 Simple timers
Added Bonus this week! I know I send out lots of stuff for iPad/iphone/ipod but here is one for Android: Kitchen Timer App for Android: Kitchen Timer
