Realewriter: A Free Program that Lets you Make Your Own Big Books For the PC

I have just found this neat program on the internet. It is a free download and it lets you create your own 'big books' for the PC or Mac.  It is similar to Powerpoint, but I think it may even be easier than Powerpoint to make your own presentations. Your students will love it. Try it out.

Friday, June 17, 2011 is a Great Place to Find Images for your Classroom is a site where the clipart can be used freely by teachers and students as the clipart is all 'reusable' and 'free from copyright restrictions'.  It will still be a good idea to attribute the clipart and to teach your students how to do this.

A Wiki is Now Available for Files to Download  is the new wiki that I have just created. This wiki will allow me to give you various files and resources that you can download and use (as my blog won't let me add any files for you to dowload).  Hope they help you out. Thanks. : A Great Big Book Website for Young students . Here is a great site that lets students choose their storybooks and the narrator will read the story to the students. the pages turn in the books and the words are highlighted as the narrator reads the story.  You can even print out pdf copies of the book for the students to work on in class.

Here is an example:

I have just come across these great websites for teaching Music to your students. Apologies for not having a seperate blog posting for each website. : A great way to teach Music

Film teaching about Viruses from Common Craft Videos

Here is a great film to show your students about Viruses and threats to your computer. It will help in teaching the Checklist. : Just like but for younger Students

Here is another great Digital Storytelling Web 2.0 website that can be used safely with your students. You are able to set up a 'class account' and students don't need to put in any personal info into the site (or to sign up for the site) as you have full control. You can even set it up so they can't share their products with anyone else. Noone from the outside world can see your classes or your students work. However, still encourage your students not to put any personal info in their LitteBirdTales projects. Remember, these sites are a safe way to teach your students how to use Web 2.0 tools.
