Do You Believe In Me?

This 12 year-old student from Dallas, Texas gives the keynote address at a opening event for a school district. He asks the audience "Do you believe in me?" It is a powerful message coming from a student who knows that teacher beliefs impact student achievement.

Mrs. Tenkey's Home Page

This is Mrs. Tenkely's home page, the writer of iLearn Technology blog. She has some great resources that are organized by grade level. I especially liked Lookybook, where you can preview picture books from cover to cover.

Statetris

This a site has great way to reinforce geography. Statetris a game that is similar to the popular game 'Tetris'. However, instead of positioning the typical Tetris blocks, you position states/countries at their proper location.

I found out about this site from iLearn technology blog. This blog is updated frequently by a k-5 technology specialist and teacher. There are many great resources posted here.
