Thinkfinity-Reading and Language Arts . (Submitted by Megan Sandifer on 2010-05-21 15:40 ).
I checked out this website a little skeptically thinking that it would be an enormous accumulation of information that was not easily searched through nor easily applied to actual classroom settings. I was delightfully mistaken. This site is fantastic! You can search (and refine your search) by grade level, subject, activity type, etc. and find hundreds of useful lesson plans, games, activities, discussions, and so on. I am all for any classroom activity that goes beyond teacher-lecturing/student-taking notes, and this website definitely has many resources for taking student involvement in the classroom to the next level. This site is run by a reputable source, very user freindly, and a great resource for teachers of all subjects; and the best part is it's free! Check it out!!!

Math World . (Submitted by Carl Walther on 2004-08-23 09:19 ).
A very comprehensive look at math. If there is some odd rule or law that you are looking for or just cant remember this is a good first start. With their broad scoop you sure to find what you need. On the down side while the explanation are simple they are not simplified, so if you are unfamiliar with math terminology and notation, this sight my give you a little problem. Also expect to hyper link around a bit to find what you want, but this should not be a problem if you have a reasonable idea what you are after.
