Welcome to this page. These are a range of sites I have visited for activities that we use in our classor for information I need as an educator. Parents and visitors are more than welcome(and encouraged) to visit these sites.
I will try to upload more sites as we discover and trial them.
NEW for TEACHERS:As teachers and educators, we sometimes need a 'Pick Me UP' or arefreshing reminder of why we are still teaching. I have decided to add links to 'BLOGS'from other educators that can give you the 'Ahhhhhh' you might need now and then andYouTubes you might like.
