    Didn’t see on this list, which the kids really enjoy and it’s educational also.

  3. 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

    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.

  7. Rease

    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.

  8. Makinen

    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?

  9. I received this on the publisher’s website ( and wanted to share it with everyone. Looks to be a wonderful site:


    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 ( which was very helpful. Thanks so much 🙂

    I noticed you missed a great page on states and capitals: . 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 🙂

  10. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!

  11. Interesting , how do I make use of this?

  12. thanks !! very helpful post!

  13. wanted to pass on a website emailed to me by one of my visitors:
    I would love to be able to share websites with other teachers. I love this website, the futures channel because it is real world jobs and way we use math and science etc..

    • Julie

      I love the site you mentioned. How much does it cost to subscribe to it?

      • Umm, which website? Most of the ones on this list are free, although some offer a premium version. I like FREE. I think teachers have enough expenses without tossing in subscription websites.

  14. I am a big fan of your blog! Look at my website, You can submit your site here!

  38. 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

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


    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 ( 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.

  42. Hi Jacqui
    We love your blog! We liked it so much we just wrote a short piece on it on our website’s blog, Noodlings. Check it out here Thanks for all the resources!

    • 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!

  43. I’ve updated this list to include websites I added this past school year and a new one I’ll be trying next year–the Virtual Cockroach (

    Please add any websites you like so we all can benefit!

  44. Julie Koch

    I love your list. I see that you have Wordle listed, but I really like Tagxedo even better. There is also a presentation with 101 ideas for using this application:

    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.

    • Great addition. I’ve actually switched from Wordle to Tagxedo because it’s so much more fun for the kids. Thanks for the reminder.

  53. 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 Not entirely educational, but the games seem to be screened well and the kids love it. Oh and another one is, 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.

  64. 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.

  65. 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 =)

    • Thanks, Gra. It is true–if we all shared our knowledge, we would be so much better off. I can start the trend, one person at a time. Thanks for visiting.

  78. 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, and the Pimsleur Languages of the World 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!
