Learn Me Good, Gooder, Best!

Another great list of resources from Learn Me Good , free educational games from Elementary up to HS, and they're usable with the interactive whiteboards -- I haven't checked them all out, 'cause I got sidetracked for several hours on the Professor Garfield site, playing games and listening to Mrs. P read to me...



 Speaking of reading, that is definitely one of the things I look forward to  if when I have my own class: reading a book to them, a long book that takes several weeks, a book with several voices and maybe a slightly scary and/or dangerous scene.  No matter what grade I get, they're getting story time!

Reading aloud to my class is my favorite thing of all time. I usually start the year out with James and the Giant Peach so that when other teachers are calling their students their, "little darlins" or "little angels" I can call them my 'disgusting worms' as Aunt Sponge and Spiker refer to James as this once in the story…of course, I throw it in several more times so they hear it, then when I sue it, they know exactly where it came from.

If I get an upper elem. class I'll read them Gary Schmidt's "Wednesday Wars" so i can call them "pied ninnies" -- or go directly to Shakespeare for other awesome insults!
