I have to admit – I get so easily carried away when I come across something I find interesting/fun/exciting etc. And although I have come in terms with this side of me, my computer hasn’t (yet at least). That’s why trying to sort everything I have saved in my Bookmarks list is always such a looong and tedious task for me. Usually I give up after the first hour or two because there are so many things to organize that I don’t know where to start. However this year I thought why not try to see which websites I use most frequently and then write posts about them. That way it will be easier for me to remember what I like/use/actually find useful etc.
To cut a long story short, here are the websites I can’t do without!
- www.timesspellingbee.co.uk/I love spelling city so much that I was impossible not to fall in love with this great online spelling game. It is easy to play, fun and boosts children’s spelling and word skills.
- www.carnegielibrary.org/kids/storymaker/I’ve been using Story maker for so long that it has really become an inevitable part of my writing lessons. It’s much faster and simpler than Storybird and it has so much to offer. It’s an amazing tool which allows kids not only to create their own stories but also design the setting, add objects and even choose actions for the story characters to perform!
