Favorite Websites

Here is a list of some of my favorite websites not in any particular order.

1.  CLIP ART! My go to place for some cute clipart for my newsletter and other ws is click on free resources. They also have some lesson plans and art activites. Click HERE to find the free resources section of their website. Another great place for clipart is discovery eduction click HERE to check it out.

2. FONTS! I love love using fun and creative fonts but I definitely don't want to pay for them. Here are some awesome sites to download free and fun fonts for your classroom worksheets and newsletters.  These first two links are from Kevin & Amanda thank you for sharing with us!

3. Phonics Centers Activities Grades K-5 From Florida Centers for Reading Research. Wow do they have some awesome center activities. I used ALOT of them during summer school last year. The kids enjoyed them and they were very helpful. Click here to visit FCRR.ORG for some free center games!

4. Of course BLOGS BLOGS BLOGS! What an awesome way to see what other teachers are doing in their classrooms. Here are a few of my favorite teacher blogs I have come across so far. 
Finally In First
Erica Boher. I just purchased her reading response activity book using my bonus point from scholastic and love it. So I was excited to come across her blog! 

5. Teachers Pay  what a great way for teachers to make some extra money. We all know we don't get paid enough for what we do but we love what we do and the money doesn't matter. I just recently purchased Michelle Oakes Place Ten Value activities because I downloaded her sample and my students LOVED it. Click HERE to download her free sample of Place Ten Value Mystery Picture and to purchase the rest!  Click HERE to visit the teachers pay teachers store.

7. Santa-Maria Bonita School District If your district uses Houghton Mifflin than you will LOVE what this teacher share website has to offer. They have morning messages, banners for each theme, language practice ws, vocabulary cards for each story (my favorite I use when I introduce the new vocabulary words), readers theaters to go with some of the stories, and some great ideas for focus walls.
