Love at First Website!
In honor of Valentine's Day, I'd like to share some fun websites that I've 'fallen in love' with and frequently use. What I'll do is break it up into a few categories and provide you with a link to the internet resource! :)
(kid friendly website featuring videos and vignettes or descriptions of various jobs)
Listening and Environmental Sounds
http://www.findsounds.com/types.html (hear and download common/familiar sounds, all sounds are categorized)
http://www.manythings.org/ac/ (audio concentration games)
(activities to practice either vocabulary or grammar in a unit)
http://pbskids.org/lions/games/ears.html (listening for beginning sounds in words)
This is my ultimate favorite!
I collect data as a service provider and since I like to learn visually, looking at my stats in charts and graphs makes it easier to write reports and explain progress to parents. I use this website frequently and it is one that I've truly 'fallen in love' with, plus it's free-even better!
Here is one of the graphs I've created with the online chart tool:
|Tracking mean length of utterance was efficient and professional|
It was 'love at firs sight or website' for me. I hope you can also begin falling in love with these tools.
Happy Valentine's Day!
