Friday G Suite Tidbit: Classroom Now Available for Personal Gmail Users

Happy Friday!

This week, Classroom was updated to be available for private Gmail users. Now you can create a Classroom with a personal account to use with groups or adult learners that is not tied to your edu account. I am going to suggest this to my son's soccer coach for organizing snacks and updates on games. Lots of possibilities with this announcement!

Have a great weekend!

Wednesday Web Tool: Interactive Sites for K-5 Education!


This week we are highlighting an awesome resource for all elementary teachers. Karen Ogen has created a clean website filled with interactive lessons and simulations for all areas of elementary education. Interactive Learning Sites has categories by subject area and strand with direct links to activities.

To visit Interactive Learning Sites, go to: http://interactivesites.weebly.com/


Once you click on a subject area, you will be taken to a list of topics/objectives to choose from. Here is the current list of science topics:



Clicking on a topic will take you to a grid of interactive websites and games. Here is the grid of interactive activities for the topic of landforms in science:


Karen has put together an amazing resource to share with educators and updates the site on a routine basis.

As with any website that could be considered a "game" by our district internet filter, I would recommend you have a student try to access the resource on a Chromebook or other device to make sure they can access it with our internet filters. If you find a resource that is blocked that you would like to use, you can request it to be unblocked by filling out this brief form.

Thanks to Karen for her hard work in creating Interactive Learning Sites!
