I find neat links and tools for education every now and then. I typically do pretty extensive searches during the month. I thought I best share them!
My favorite is the Multiplication-Skip-Counting-Ring found here. This was such a wonderful idea!
Quiet Time Activities – This is worth replicating in a similar fashion or purchasing. I will let you know what I do. I am thinking that I saved shoe boxes for a very good reason other than hoarding.
Life-Sized Felt Anatomy Model (DIY) What better way to teach? They can stick the pieces to their bodies.
I want to use this Plush Cell Model to create pillows for learning. This is a great project to incorporate many life skills as well as creating the models of animal and plant cells for hands-on visual learning.
Hand Kite – this is great for play.
Organizing homeschool supplies and planning:
Homeschool Workbox, Lapbook Organizing, and Planning
Winning at Planning
Etsy.com – Chair organizers. These are fabulous.
I was browsing Wikispaces too and found this space, which included K-12 teacher resources. I like the list of objectives and resource links.
Free stories and e-books for the beginning reader
Internet4Classrooms has standards, printables, and online stories for reading. This is only a smidge of what is there. It is worth the browse.
Cool Math 4 Kids
In general, an idea that evolved from searching for Dolche words and phonetic families was the “World Wall” folder. I love that these can be portable and that they are very hands-on. I will post our Valentine and -ack word folders soon. I found the greatest resource from Scholastic for word families. Look for it during the dollar-deals days too.
I hope you had fun this month and that these resources will help you create your own trunks for learning.
