This site works well for elementary or high school teachers and students.  It is a wonderful way to share resources or organize them for yourself.  Make your own page or you can use pages made by others. These pages are collections of websites on particular subjects with each site represented by its own icon. Click on the icon to go to the actual site. You can make one for your students to use or have the students make one of their research sites to go with a paper or project.

 

Help your students be successful with online sites. Lingro turns all the words on the site into dictionary linlingroks. It then keeps up with words that were used and makes a word list the student can study. It helps them learn the list by turning it into flashcards. Very easy to use and free!

Calculation Nation is a collection of games that not only teach mathematics and higher order thinking, but are also lots of fun! They can be played alone or with someone else online (no personal information is shared other than the state in which you live.) The games involve everything from fractions to simplifying polynomials. (Did I mention that they were developed by NCTM?) Be sure to check them out:    http://calculationnation.nctm.org/
