Hello Teachers!

I hope you will scroll through the resources and find one, or two new things to try in your classes.

Common Core Sqworl of Websites and Resources  
I created this collection of common core resources for you. I will be adding to it throughout the school year.

Pearltrees is a service that combines social bookmarking with mind-mapping. Using Pearltrees you can bookmark websites and arrange your bookmarks into webs or mind-maps of related topics. Might be interesting to use with research papers, or projects as a pre-writing activity.(via Free Technology for Teachers)


Keek - Share Microvideo Status Updates With Friends & Followers Share microvideo status updates with friends, family and the world. Make a video diary. A cool alternative to journaling. 

Smore - Design beautiful online flyers and publish instantly Have students make flyers related to the literature they are reading in English class, the time period they are studying in History, the concepts they are working in in Math or Science, or in the target language in a World Language class.
