I'm loving my new PortaPortal (http://.portaportal.com guest access name is kteachers)!! It has really helped me get even more organized and feel better prepared to use technology in my classroom. I'm also hoping that the teachers on my team will find it useful too.
I've come across so many great sites in the last couple of days. The first is http://www.watchknow.org/, which was brought to my attention by Clemencia at http://storytime-storytime.blogspot.com/. The second is http://www.fcrr.org/curriculum/studentCenterActivities.shtm. I have spent tons of time on this website printing off reading centers, and then cutting and gluing them on colored index cards and cardstock.
I also have a PortaPortal of online learning games my students use: http://.portaportal.com guest access name is kfh). They love to use it in the computer lab, and they have access to it at home too.
Anyone else use portaportal? What kind of technology do you use?
I'm still studying for the MAT, which is scheduled for July 27. I improved my score on my second practice test, so I'm a lot less stressed about it now.
Also, I forgot to mention in my last post, I turned 24 in May! I made Rice Krispy Treats and brought them to school to celebrate my and all other summer birthdays.
