Welcome to the first edition of Tuesday Tech Talk, blog style! This week I’m bringing you three sites courtesy of Claire Fournier and Debbie Camp. You might want to set the timer before you visit these sites. They’re so comprehensive you’ll lose track of time very quickly. Hours could easily pass as you explore these amazing resources.
Planet 13 is the third grade class website of two Michigan teachers. This isn’t just an ordinary class website, though. It’s filled with wonderful teaching resources and ideas that can be adapted for most elementary grades and classrooms
Mrs. Meacham’s Classroom Snapshots
Mrs. Meacham’s Classroom Snapshots is the amazing site of a primary grade teacher. Jessica Meacham shares her materials and snapshots of her classroom. Much of the materials and ideas can be adapted for any elementary grade classroom. This site is sure to inspire you, and provide you with resources galore.
The School Bell
This is the site of a now retired primary teacher. There’s extensive information on using word walls, links to monthly themes, activities, and holidays. Like the other sites, much of this can be adapted for any grade.
Do these sites inspire you to add more to your webpage, but you’re not sure how? Just let me know and I’ll be glad to help you out.
At the end of each Tuesday Tech Talk I’ll highlight a video from TeacherTube or YouTube. The first one, “Do You Believe in Me?” is from a ten-year-old boy in Dallas, delivering the convocation keynote address to over 20,000 teachers.
Click here for the TeacherTube link if YouTube is blocked.
If you do not see a video above, it may be blocked.
Note: YouTube is currently blocked in all Plainville Community Schools, but soon we will be able to unblock specific videos. TeacherTube is not blocked at school, but it often seems to be a bit slow.
Since this is a blog, you can click the comment link below and share something you found interesting or useful on these sites, your opinion of them, or even a note to Claire and Debbie about their fabulous finds! If no one has left a comment yet it will say, “No Comments.” Just click on that so you can comment. Enjoy the resources and this new format!
