Favorite Website for Teachers Starting the New School Year

I would like to highlight Reading Rockets and Colorin Colorado and my newest find on their website. According to their description: “The Reading Rockets project is comprised of PBS television programs, available on videotape and DVD; online services, including the websites ReadingRockets.org and ColorinColorado.org; and professional development opportunities. Reading Rockets is an educational initiative of WETA, the flagship public television and radio station in the nation’s capital, and is funded by a major grant from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs.”

Their newest page presents blog specially designed for teachers by teacher researchers. One example is:The Sounded Out Blog Page. This page provides relevant and up to date research based teaching ideas for teachers. This week they highlighted first day activities!

Other pages is a list of multicultural stories for those teachers ready to do some culturally relevant teaching
