Catching My Breath!

Is it March yet? Almost? February has been filled with lots of travel and meeting so many new friends! As I have been zipping around, I have found a few things I thought you might like. So, what’s new? Here we go….


Just Friday my friends from Wisconsin showed me this cool way to bookmark my favorite things by using Sqworl. It cracks me up. The icon is a squirrel, but the spelling is less conventional. Use Sqworl to make a personalized homepage and place to keep your favorite sites. How nutty is that? Get it nutty…squirrels? Never mind. HA!


As I was looking for something else, I found the iPad app Tools 4 Students. This app is filled with about 25 graphic organizers students can use and complete on the iPad. Nifty, neato! This is a $.99 app, so under $1 you can put organizers to work for your students.

The next site I am most excited about. My friend, Katherine in TN, showed me this one. It is The Marshall Memo. Every week the author summarizes journal articles from our favorite Educational Journals. We are all crushed for time, but you get the information in one place. It does cost, but sometimes we have to pay for convenience. This is especially great for folks planning and providing professional development. Thanks again, Katherine!
