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.

Has anyone talked about GuruLib yet? It's a place for teachers with books in their rooms to keep track of all of them online, even with photos. I like it a lot.

and Linoit.

gFlashcards is very good alternative to Quzilet. You can create your own images and audio flashcards for free.

Here are a few useful sites that I have discovered that I haven't noticed yet.

Global Envision For Teachers: lesson plans for teachers by Mercy Corps that promote global awareness.

Educational Rap Music:

A Google A Day: Fun internet research challenges for students to build research skills. Great for short activities or extra credit.

I use this site with my academically gifted students to compare how different parts of the country approach the same story in the news. You will find links to newspapers across the country and around the world. There are 100's of links to tech sites, OpEd pieces, weather, business, and more.

My friend and I completed a project using Pixton. The kids love it. One girl did an independent study where she animated our entire leadership camp experience. It was awesome. The students were able to have partners in different classes using chat. Again, they loved it.
