Updated 3-28-08

I love to search the web for ideas for my classroom.  There are lots of places that I go back to time after time.  I'm going to try to update these websites as I find them.  Some of them may not stay online for long, so sorry if the website doesn't work. 

I also left my older pages on the website, and may have doubles of some websites.  

Joanne

My favorite places that I use all the time must be paid for-

http://www.ABCteachit.com

http://www.enchantedlearning.com

http://www.teacherfilebox.com

http://www.classroomzoom.com/

http://printables.scholastic.com/printables/home/

Other favorites are free-

http://www.primaryresources.co.uk

http://www.learningpage.com


http://www.primaryresources.co.uk/

http://www.janbrett@hedgies-treasure-trove.com

http://www.Crayola@crayola.chtah.com

http://www.mathwire.com/


These are math, reading, language arts, science, social studies, writing, readers theater, and wordsearch websites I have saved...not sure if they are current or not. They are not in any particular order & I tried to check for doubles, but there still may be some.  If you are like me, I'm always looking for new websites that may have just what I need!  I do not have these linked yet.  You will have to cut & paste.  JG

Pilgrims
http://www.holidays.net/thanksgiving/pilgrims
www.holiday.net , then find thanksgiving 2007, then pilgrims. This will give you the page that won't open for you.

Interact has a great simulation  called The Pilgrims if you have enough time it takes your class on a simulated journey through the pilgrims voyage.  I learned about the PIlgrims more from this activity than I did from all my schooling!
