Hi all. I'm compiling a list of the education sites that you go to every day when you log on -- the go-to place for lesson plans, curriculum ideas, a quick grabs for those national holidays that catch us all off guard, or the 100th anniversary of such and such. Thanks for your help.

I'm a certified speech and language pathologist who works primarily with early childhood special ed children. The best overall website I have ever used is abcteach.com. This site has everything a teacher or special educator needs. I have used it for years and highly recommend it for anyone in the field of education.

Diigo, a social bookmarking site has extra features for teachers. It is much more than a place to store bookmarks! You can join group of other educators and share resources. I suggest you take a tour.

You can share your bookmarks with a simple link also. Here is the link to my library.

I can't believe I have two sites to contribute that I haven't seen listed.
www.enchantedlearning.com (the free access is good, but for $25.00 you can get a whole school access, to include parents.) Lots of great activities for all ages. Printable and ready to go.

www.eclipsecrossword.com Free crossword making software. Powerful printing options, and you can make html puzzles for your webpage.

www.quizlet.com I saw this one listed already, but just a plug. It's the BEST flashcard website out there. You can join groups, or search for word lists that others have created. Top notch.
