It's Teacher Appreciation Week! Now, I love the homemade cards and signs, but every so often there's a true present that shows how much teachers are appreciated. Interested?
Learning A-Z hosts a family of sites that you may already use in your classroom. If you already use these sites, then you know that they are subscription sites. Well for one day each week, Learning A-Z is opening one of their sites for FREE!! Did you hear that? FREE!!
The last time they did this, I almost crashed my computer from downloading files nonstop! :) Best fun ever! So, grab a cup of coffee (and possibly an external hard drive) and dive in for great resources! I know these resources are not necessarily "integrating technology", but they are fabulous! Here's the schedule:
All week: Raz-Kids is a student-centric site where kids can practice reading online anytime and anywhere.
