This is a space to share some of the best online resources for teaching and learning. We’ve shared a few to start, and we’ll continue to update and add as we find new sites and apps for you. Please feel free to let us know if you find a great online tool that you think we should share on this page. Also let us know if there’s a type of resource that you would like us to seek out and post. Thanks! ~Ms. Binder and Ms. Megivern

E-books and Audio books:
Terrific resource for accessing thousands of e-books and audiobooks for your students. The audiobooks are well-produced (not just a computer voice), and students are able to turn the pages and read along with the audio. Teachers can open a free account and can create up to 36 profiles for students.
Classroom Activity Builder:
Create Jeopardy-style game boards for your classroom. The free version allows you to build basic boards, and search and upload boards from other flipquiz users.
A kid-safe platform for sharing, discussing, and tracking books…basically a Goodreads or Shelfari for younger students.
Students can make their own booktracks; selecting music and sound to accompany an existing or an original story. The site also includes a free (but limited) library of e-books set to music/sound effects.
