Today I am not going to direct you to one site that has a subject or activity on it. This post will focus on my own student technology site.
This year I taught a 2nd grade technology class, and many of the sites we used in class they wanted to use at home. That's exciting because it means they enjoyed what we did, are still learning, and since I only saw them every 6 days, they were practicing their skills.
Throughout this experience, I wanted to keep a site where the kids could access their websites. I have another Weebly that you can actually get to from here. On the navigation bar at the top, you can click on 'Student Site' and be directed to their area.
During the summer students are more than welcome to use that site! I am going to be updating it, but their links will be there all summer. Access it here http://schwartztech.weebly.com/. You can then go to Students > and then choose the appropriate grade level. Honestly, I am still working on this site. I have made it to 3rd grade as of publishing time of this blog post. I hope to get further on it this week. Students are free to go to any grade level, as many of the sites have multiple grade levels as choices.
The sites are shown using Symbaloo. This is a wonderful way to display links using tiles. There is actually one I created for teacher resources up above under 'Website Collections'. On all of the Symbaloos you can find ELA in the top left corner, math in the top right, sites with many subject areas in the bottom right, and science/social students in the bottom left. There are technology links, typing practice, and other fun sites in the center area. Some of the links may contain ads, but the games are safe for children. As always, monitor their use and talk to them about using the Internet!
One more post next Monday will close out this 6-week series. To see all the posts in one area, select "Summer Series 2015" under 'Categories' to the right. All posts will be on one page then!
