Helpful Sites for Teachers

Flocabulary

Very cool website that has a variety of free songs and videos available for all grade levels.  I particularly like the Week in Rap which is a weekly run-down of current events.  These are all aligned to CCCS.  There is even more available with a subscription but there is also a good amount available for free.  The lyrics to the raps are printable and many have additional links to research further.  The kids really do enjoy it!

Alternative presentation product to PowerPoint.  Zoom in and out of your text and pictures and get creative!  Great option for student projects.

TED Ed

Very useful site with video clips and the ability to create your own unique lessons based around the clip.

WatchKnowLearn

Thousand of well organized free videos to use in the classroom.  Some are hosted by YouTube and therefore not currently viewable in school.  This will hopefully change once we have access to YouTube.  Still lots of helpful videos available.
