  2. Hey, Jacqui! Thanks for sharing this list, which I know you have put a lot of effort into compiling over probably several school years!

    Wanted to let you know when I clicked the link to your class Internet start page in the first paragraph, it didn’t work. I was curious to see what your page looked like!

    Hope you are having a good summer!

    • Thanks, Sandy. I hate when I do that! All fixed.

      I love my Protopage internet start page. I’ve tried others–Symbaloo, Only2Clicks–but none work as well, as clearly. I always have my eyes open, though, for that Next Big Tool.

      Hope your summer’s going well.
