Thank you so much for sharing these sites! It seems as though you were reading my mind when I was looking to compile a list of websites that would best help me integrate technology into the classroom. The best part of all is that they are free! Do you have any recommendations on any sites that specifically target reading? I find that integrating technology with reading is my biggest struggle. I'd appreciate any advice! Thanks!

I am a mother of 4 and a college student learning teacher education.

Thanks for sharing these sites; terrific resources! I have a creative writing website to share that I explored with my kids this summer. It is called Cubert’s Writing Cube. It is an excellent online platform for creative writing in the elementary grades. It is Wiki based, which allows the students to do collaborative story writing. There are some very cool features such as a “gallery” section where the students can draw illustrations or upload graphic files, and there are some terrific interactive story-starters. Your students will not have a chance to suffer from writer’s block. Here are some other positive notes about the website:
• Kids become more engaged to write their book reports and stories.
• Getting feedback from you and peers within the cube makes it easier to edit, and and they resist it less.
• Students can access it at home to do their homework or add more detail to their illustrations.
• When they publish their writing, students can choose how to share it with friends and parents.
• Teachers find the lessons on the “Lesson Shelf” resource very helpful to get started and inspired.
• You can access the entire writing process (and papers) accessible from a single place.
