Check out the resources that are available for free online for creating comics with your students. This is a great resource to write collaboratively, just like Comic Life, but for those teachers who want something fresh or who don't have Mac computers, these resources are AMAZING! Click on the below links or find them along the left column under K-2 Writing Resources with Comics in the title. ENJOY!

You're going to LOVE Scholastic!

If you remember one of my first posts, I mentioned online reading resources, like Weekly Reader and Time for Kids. I mentioned Scholastic News, but this resource has shown to be REALLY AMAZING, so I want to re-introduce it to you incase you haven't seen it!

Scholastic News updates DAILY with current issues like events, weather, and other important topics. YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS! I posted it as "Scholastic News", both under the K-2 Reading and 3-5 General Resources. You're going to love it!


Ambleweb C.E. Primary School created this website for Interactive web resources. WOW! You have to see how great these activities are! Incredibly, some of the math games were created by 4 to 10 year olds, but you could never tell by how excellent the games are! In addition, the site provides teacher resources! I have set the site up to open to the math page, however if you go to the top of the website and select the grade or subject area, you can see even more sites! This one's a great one to play around with! It is labeled "Ambleweb CE Primary" under General Resources.

A new resource!

East Carter Elementary in Missouri created this general resource for elementary teachers and students for SMART Boards. Enjoy the wide array of resources that you may not have seen yet on this site. It is labeled as "East Carter SMART Board Site" under General Resources. HAVE FUN!


In all honesty, this is one of THE BEST sites I have seen for useful, interactive math resources for a SMART Board.

Tucson Unified School District in Arizona created an Interactive Math website for K-5 (as well as 6-12, which is on the secondary page). It is INCREDIBLE to see the number of games and activities it has that can be used on a SMART Board. Take some time to explore the site and find your favorites. The site is labeled "Tucson AZ Interactive Math", under General Resources. ENJOY!
