Technology Tip Tuesday

Oh my, yesterday was my first day in my classroom. I did tons of organizing, moved a whole carload of stuff, and got started on my calendar wall. I am taking a day off today to do some housework and play with my poor neglected puppies, but will be back to the grind tomorrow!

Here's another Teacher Week feature--Technology Tip Tuesday! Click the picture below to see the other teachers who have linked up with Blog Hoppin' to give you some fabulous techy ideas.

Here are five fabulous FREE websites I have come across for first graders (click the pictures to go to the website):

{1.} KB... Konnected Kids --> I love when other people organize a list of sites for me, so I don't have to! This is a collection of sites for students, organized by topic (read alouds, art, math, animals, etc.). So many websites and easy to use!

{2.} Johnnie's Math Page --> Here's another collection of websites, but this one is all math websites/games organized by topic. Fantastic!!

{3.} Dreambox Learning --> This site only has a few activities (five frames, ten frames, make tens match, etc.) but is really good to use with an interactive whiteboard. I can't wait to use some of these activities with my Mimio.

{4.} Literactive --> Free, but you do have to register. This website has tons of reading games... started at a pre-reading level, working to level 7. Activities for different reading skills (rhyming, initial sounds, CVC word building, etc.) These would be great for an interactive whiteboard as well.

{5.} ABCYa --> Another collection of great educational games. There are reading, math, and other games. So much fun!

Hope these can be useful! I can't wait to check out all the other Blog Hoppers!
