Fun for the Holidays

I always like to post great games, webtools, and apps you can use during December. We all seem to need more of those fun resources to make the festive days more special. Here are some of my latest finds.


Technology Rocks Seriously: Gingerbread Apps– This has become one of my favorite blogs to revisit. I always find great resources here. This post is designated to those of you using the Gingerbread Man in your class this month. There are too many to list separately, so visit the post directly to see all the delicious Gingerbread Man resources.

Technology Rocks Seriously: Merry Christmas Fun: Take a peek at the fun Christmas themed games and activities linked on this post. This will save you oodles of time searching!


Jib Jab: Elf Madness– Have fun watching your own elves dance. Use Jib Jab to make a customized music video with pictures of students, staff, family, or friends.


Write a Letter to Santa: This is such a cute site! Even your little guys will be able to type a simple message to Santa and then they get immediate response. No Log In or Password or email necessary. Fun stuff!
