I have posted about Pearltrees before, it is an app that allow you to collect, curate, make connections and then share sites, blogs, articles or websites around similar ideas or concepts. I said at the time that I liked this concept because it was such a visual interface and that it allowed the viewer to see the physical links between ideas. I found this one the other day and was impressed with the quality of the links. Kathy Casey has obviously spent a good deal of time collecting great resources for using the iPads in the classroom.

Make sure you also have a look back up the tree as she also has some great resources around; Kathy Casey's iPad Resources Collection on Pearltrees

Written and illustrated by Allison Keeme, Witchemina is the story of a “sweet and gentle little witch” who thinks and acts much differently than traditional witches. Witchemina lives in a dark and mucky swamp together with her sisters and while they spend their time casting spells and boiling brews, she enjoys much different interests like drawing portraits of friends, casting good spells and baking chocolate chip cookies.
