This Week's Resources

I'm going to try and make this a weekly deal, since I come across or think of a ton of resources each week. Happy learning!

Teaching Tolerance
This site has great classroom activities that not only link well with social studies curriculum but also work to help students learn sensitivity and tolerance for the variety of viewpoints in their schools and communities.

Let's Play Math!
This article describes several math games and activities to really get kids thinking mathematically. It is written with the home schooling audience in mind, but the activities would also work well in a regular classroom or as fun family-time games.

50 Education Technology Tools Every Teacher Should Know About

Education Infographics
I wasn't really clear on what an "infographic" was until I saw this. It is basically just what it says: a graphic that provides you with information. This is a really great resource to think about when you are asking students to present information. Check out some samples on this site. 

Teaching with Images
This site provides a number of links and resources from a woman I follow on Twitter named Shelly Terrell, who specializes in ESOL instruction. Teaching with images is a great strategy for all learners, but is especially ESL-friendly.
