Interactive Sites for Education

Hey Y'all! It's Betsey from Trendy Tech Tips again! Can you believe it is AUGUST??? Where in the world did the summer go? I go back to school in exactly 14 days! Oh my word!

Anywho, I was looking at the survey that many of you guys have taken telling us what you would like to get out of Technology Tailgate. Most of you said you'd like to see lessons that you can use on the Interactive Whiteboard. I have the perfect site!

It's called Interactive Sites for Education and it is AWESOME! What is it, you may ask? Well, the name says it all! First of all, the site is divided up into subjects. When you click on a subject, it is divided into multiple categories! For example, let's say you clicked on math, then you would get to choose if you wanted fractions, angles, multiplication, etc. Once you click on your category, you then have tons of thumbnail images linked to interactive sites and games that you can use to have a little fun with your kids! The sites included range in skill from basic to more advanced for the older kids. They are great for the Interactive White Board for whole group instruction or for personal computer use! Some of my teachers use this for mini lessons and then have it set up on the Smart board or computer as a center for extra practice. The site is very user friendly and my kids love it!

Keep it Techie and Keep it FREE!
