  2. How are you?

    You have a lot of information on here. I was browsing around and saw the poetry section and it reminded me just a bit of when I was in High School and how much I loved Creative Writing class. I did some great poems and writings in that class. Those were definitely the days and probably what helped me get where I am today (not that I’m exactly too far, yet) on BluePop13.com.

    Have a great day and keep teaching. “The implementation of knowledge is power” – Larry Winget: my favourite author.

    • Thanks for dropping by. It’s a well-kept secret that bloggers have to be darn good writers. Concise, pithy, exciting–all in about 250 words. I checked your blog out–you’ve covered it all.

  3. Hello,

    I would like to introduce you our website: http://www.goldstudent.com

    It is a fun, easy and effective online math enrichment and assistance program for students K-6. It is designed to help children improve their problem-solving skills, gain confidence in their math abilities and have fun while they learn.

    Please tell us what do you think.

    Thanks!

  4. I am impressed with all this useful information. Was WAY more than I expected. I just cannot keep up with your posts. So much information to read about.

  5. Shame on you for creating another terrific post! Awesome stuff, keep up the good work. I see a lot of potential! I wonder if you are an active user with any social networking sites like Digg or Stumble Upon?

  6. I received this on the publisher’s website (http://structuredlearning.net) and wanted to share it with everyone. Looks to be a wonderful site:

    Hi!

    I am an elementary social studies teacher, I am working on finding links about states and capitals to post on our class site. While looking for pages on the states I found your page (http://www.structuredlearning.net/suggestedlinks.html) which was very helpful. Thanks so much :)

    I noticed you missed a great page on states and capitals: http://www.crestcapital.com/tax/us_states_and_capitals.html . It looks like a very nice page on states and capitals, it also lists the state bird, and flower, along with each states official website which I think is rather neat! I plan on using this page in my list of resources.

    Have a wonderful day :)

  7. Hi Miss Murray,

  19. Thank you for shared information

    Regarding typing test,
    In the 1980’s typing speed was one of the criteria to get jobs anywhere.
    But slowly this trend stopped and typing speed was not important to most of the employers.
    This is the reason why typing tests, which were once very popular suddenly, vanished from the scene.
    However recently we see a growing shift in the attitude of the employers

  20. I received this comment on another page and wanted to share the website with everyone. I think you’ll enjoy it:

    Hi

    I came across your blog (AskaTechTeacher) and loved it. I surf the net often for education sources and found that yours is one of the coolest and cleanest. Your lesson plans (Google Earth, etc.) is one of the highlights in my opinion. Well thought out and very relevant for the current times.

    I wanted to share with you our site (http://www.gnowledge.com/corp). Its a public test repository platform for you or other teachers to incorporate in teaching. We hope that innovative teachers like you can capitalize on it.

    its public and free to use, and has a few awesome features. we’re still in the Beta stages and we just want to get the word out organically. I truly believe that our site can minimize teachers workload tremendously and spread their teaching globally. Please let us know your thoughts.

    Im always available at @atGnowledge.

    • I am flattered, Rebecca. Thanks so much. I will return the favor. I do a weekly website review and I’ll add your website to my future list. You a wonderful to spread the word!

  23. I love your list. I see that you have Wordle listed, but I really like Tagxedo even better.
    http://www.tagxedo.com/ There is also a presentation with 101 ideas for using this application: https://docs.google.com/present/view?id=0AQuLVd7HRkD_ZG4ycmdtOV8zaGRjZG1wZDQ&hl=en

    I am new to Blogging and having a website although I am trying to set them up now. I would like for my students, parents and teachers to have access to your list of links. First, is that possible, and second what is the appropriate way to do so? Should it be a link? For my future reference, what is the appropriate way to request permission? I hate that teacher’s spend so much of our precious planning time reinventing the wheel, but I don’t want to be lazy or disrespectful of another author/educator.

  30. Great List! I have heard of a lot of these, but have found some a bunch of new ones. One I didn’t see that a student showed me the other day is someschoolgames.com. Not entirely educational, but the games seem to be screened well and the kids love it. Oh and another one is storylineonline.net, which has a bunch of children’s books read by actors and actresses. I believe it is run by the screen actors guild. Thanks again for the great lists.

  31. hello!,I like your writing so so much! share we be in contact extra approximately your post on AOL? I need a specialist on this space to solve my problem. May be that is you! Looking forward to see you.

  40. I received information about a website that looks pretty good to me and wanted to share it with my readers. It used to be SpellingCity and has expanded to Vocabulary:
    I was wondering if you are familiar with our website, VocabularySpellingCity. Teachers can register for free and create and save word lists that their students can then use to play a variety of learning games and activities. We also offer a Premium Membership for $49.99/year that includes 25 student licenses. Premium Members have added benefits.

  41. Wonderful work! This is the kind of information that are supposed to be shared across the internet. Disgrace on the seek engines for not positioning this post higher! Come on over and visit my site . Thank you =)

  51. I received these suggestions from a reader. Wanted to pass them on–they look good.

    My name is Susan Taylor, and I’m a freelance writer. I was doing research for an article I’m writing and I came across your AskATeacher blog. Your insight and extensive resources have helped me quite a bit, especially your recent post with your review of “98 Tech Problems in the Classroom.” I just wanted to thank you for the time and thought you put into both the blog and your list of resources!

    I know that teaching is not an easy occupation, and I thought I’d “pay it forward” by suggesting a few fun tech resources to you – the BBC Games Center at http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/games/, and the Pimsleur Languages of the World quiz http://www.pimsleurapproach.com/resources/flash/language-quiz/. These could both be useful resources to use in the computer room, as they are fun, interactive and cross-disciplinary. I hope you don’t think me too forward for coming to you with suggestions, but every great teacher I know is always looking for new resources and ideas, and you seem like a passionate teacher. :)

    Have a great day!

  53. The website link for 10 Alternatives to Book Reports takes me to apple.com. Is there something I’m missing?

  54. I think that classroom management is one of the foundations of any classroom. My site, http://www.mrk12.com has easy resources for teachers, counselors, and education professionals to strengthen their classrooms, motivate their students and prevent bullying.
