Great Sites for Teachers to Bookmark: Part 2
Following up on yesterday's blog post, here are five more websites I like to use...
The first one is a website that helps you create Jeopardy and other games using Power Point.
Grammar Bytes is a website with tons of free grammar lessons.
Wordle is a fun website to use. You copy and paste in a text and it generates word clouds. The words are sized according to their frequency in the text, so it is a fun way to pull out important vocabulary words and ideas. Students can do this with a text they are studying or writing. It also makes fun cover pages.
The English Companion is a site with a lot of great resources for teaching novels. The materials are free and easy to use with a variety of texts.
Animoto is a website that allows you to sign up for a free basic account. You upload pictures and it automatically makes a digital movie for you. Very easy to use.
For more ideas, follow my board of websites useful to teachers on Pinterest.
