Many companies have developed virtual tools for math, which allow students to learn, practice, and have fun with different math concepts. We will discuss ten of the best on the market.

The Amazing Race: English Edition – The Canswedian English Teacher I teach a class where the students don’t receive a grade… It is for students who don’t take Spanish, French or German and have extra English/Swedish instead. At times I am left banging my head against the wall – or grumbling a few choice words – because the class lacks the structure and drive I so crave in my regular English classes. My co-teacher and I work fantastic together, and have tried to do what we can with them. However, I am constantly asking myself – how am I supposed to encourage the students and make them realize that they should give a hooey about these oh-so-important-lessons?! This summer, I had a little thought bubble float up one day. Why not do something like The Amazing Race with them?

PreK Activities All Other Grades Top 50 Math Sites and Apps Throughout the last few years I've compiled quite a few lists of my favorite sites for a variety of subjects. Over the last year and a half one might have noticed that my lists have started to change and instead of focusing on sites I've been focusing more on apps as "mobile learning" has really taken off. It seems now a days a person can find an app for almost anything. Specializing in Ed Tech I review sites/apps all the time and decided to start posting my favorites for different subjects.

Caves Question time! Why have the girl and her companion entered the caves? Who do you think the girl is? Who is her companion? Can you see anything strange in the background? What do you think might be about to happen in the cave? Building a lesson around a sitcom Depending on your style of teaching you might like activities that are more - or less - controlled.

14 Song-Based Lesson Plans and Activities Although I know I like using music in my teaching, I never thought there would be so much of it on this blog when I started it over a year ago.
