Welcome to Website Wednesday, bringing you some of the best of websites I’ve looked at recently that you can really use.
The Mathwire Blog is the math activity blog of a retired teacher. She shares great no-tech teaching ideas and templates, all designed for the elementary classroom. This blog is meant to keep visitors up to date on the most current Mathwire website happenings.
Mathwire is the parent website of the blog referenced above. The site provides no-tech materials that correlate with NCTM Standards, and have been field tested by classroom teachers.
10 Websites for Reading Children’s Stories Online is a blog entry from the MakeUseOf website (where I always find cool new things!). You may know about some of these sites that will read stories to your students, but chances are you’ll find one or two new ones, just like I did.
If you’re looking for resources to help explain the earthquake and tsunami in Japan to your students, you might want to look at these:
Understanding the Japan Earthquake - Explanation by a Smithsonian geologist
Devastation in Japan – From Scholastic News Online
If you find a resource that should be highlighted here, be sure to let me know!
