Tool #5

Cool math .com - An amusement park of math and more! Math lessons, math games, math practice, math fun! | Diigo

This is one of the sites I found which I think is pretty cool! I found it on Diigo and used the tag math in the search. The site contains lots of math games for our kids to play, it also has lesson ideas for us, the teachers. Another cool feature on this site is the link for parents..so much stuff!!!

The second site is:
Water Cycle Song

This is a cute song. I love using songs in my classroom to help students with learning/retaining information. Seems to work!

To find this I tagged education. I searched on Delicious for this one.

I liked this site a lot because so many times we struggle to think of new and innovative lessons that we can use with our students. On teacher tube we can search for lessons and get ideas from what other teachers have done. Why reinvent the wheel right? It's nice to actually watch a lesson as opposed to just read about a lesson. By watching the lesson we can see how the teacher delivers that particular lesson and get ideas from them, we can present the lesson the same way or change it, depending on our students needs.

Even though we were supposed to sign up for either Delicious or Diigo, I ended up signing up for both. You never know what you can find! I did find that Delicious was a bit more difficult to use though.

  1. I love the cool math website, too! How do you think you will use social bookmarking in your classroom? Will you provide students with login information so they can access websites? Or will they have their own accounts? Just curious how you'll use these cool tools!
