AudioLiterate 11 Hilarious Hoax Sites to Test Website Evaluation In this day and age, where anyone with access to the internet can create a website, it is critical that we as educators teach our students how to evaluate web content. There are some great resources available for educating students on this matter, such as Kathy Schrock’s Five W’s of Website Evaluation or the University of Southern Maine’s Checklist for Evaluating Websites. Along with checklists and articles, you will also find wonderfully funny hoax websites, aimed at testing readers on their ability to evaluate websites. These hoax sites are a great way to bring humor and hands-on evaluation into your classroom, and test your students’ web resource evaluation IQ! Check out these 11 example hoax sites for use in your own classrooms: Of all of these, my favorite is always the Dihydrogen Monoxide website, which aims to ban dihydrogen monoxide and talks in detail about its dangers. Happy hoax-hunting! Like this: Like Loading...
Barrow Media Center | Expect the Miraculous I'm obsessed with Daily 5! Check out my rotation chart & FREEBIES! Well friends, it's official I am obsessed with Daily Five! I read the book & stalked all your blogs & became....OBSESSED! I am loving it & so are my kiddos! It was very intimidated at first because I wasn't sure how I was going to fit it into my schedule & then I found out we are required to do an uninterrupted 90 minute reading block which does not include RTI...ugh! Here are a few shots of my kiddos in action! I know, I know...holy cuteness! Can you say "Namaste"...they can! This is our first try @ "Read to Self" after picking out our "Just Right" books for the week. Of course I set the "Stamina Timer" on the smartboard! After we built up our stamina to 12 minutes I let them have "reading buddies". And then I introduced "Read to Someone". Two of my boys during "Read to Someone". Another perfect example of "Read to Someone". Okay last one...them saying "Namaste". Here is a sheet that I created for "Word Work". This is the sheet for write it-rainbow write it. Write it-build it! WAH-LAH!

The reason I think centers is so successful this year is because I only allow 3 people at each center, except buddy reading (only 2) and technology (4). So far it is working out nicely!
