I am here to help.

ZB Spelling Connection

Even though we don't use this program for spelling, it's still a great place to go for some games that could help students (K-8)improve their spelling skills. I was particularly impressed with the proofreading game. Students read a passage and find the errors. One passage I corrected had spelling errors only. I clicked on the proofreading mark and clicked on the error. A box came up and asked me to spell the word correctly. Another passage had other errors. I was able to add words, place punctuation marks, correct spelling, use capitals and proof the entire passage. Check out the passage I proofed!

WordItOut is a site that allows you to make a poster of words using your own text or copying someone else's text. I have copied Nixon's esignation speech and have made a poster/word cloud. I shared Wordle with you last year. This tool is the same however it allows you to embed the cloud in a website or blog.

Maths Dictionary

This is a great math dictionary! Just click on the title to go to the site. I clicked on the letter B and then clicked on balance to get the definition with a graphic. Students could use this to help them understand math terminology.

TED Talks

I learn lots of things by watching TED talks. Here's a video about creatures in the Ocean. Although it is only 5 minutes long it is filled with amazing info. Take the time to watch it. You won't be disappointed!

Want more?? Click on the title of this post to go to the Ted site. You may find something neat to share with students but you will more likely find videos that you will enjoy.
