Hello Everyone,

We have been very busy working with a fabulous group of 8th graders in the writing process and publishing some eBooks and well, we are happy to say, life has been busy and fulfilling.  Thank you for all the well wishes as we continue to write and work on our final draft of book I in the Unlock the Teacher series. (who knew that edits are never ending 🙂 Given the time of year, we thought we would share some new and exciting sites we have found and recommend for student or teacher use this holiday season…or throughout the new year.

Wonderopolis is a great site for kids who like to learn a new factoid every day. Might be a great bellwork tool to use int he classroom too 🙂

Discover Harry Potter in a new way at Pottermore! A new interactive site that is all things Harry.

The NGA site provides users art adventures and activities from the National Gallery of Art.  Can also be a great classroom resource!

Monterey Bay Aqauarium…we HIGHLY recommend this site for the young and the old.  “The “E-Quarium” site gives you a look at how one of the newest and most elaborate aquariums in the country works, learn about the effects of El Niño, and see how the sea otter population is being preserved.” Check it out and let us know your thoughts. We think it is sure to amaze!

May we continue to seek knowledge in all things~
