Where are they now?

Do you ever see something on TV and wonder.. where are they now? Well, I thought I would revisit some of my favorite links from years ago and see what they look like now. Should be fun. You are going to love the updates to some of our beloved websites.


What’s not to love about ABC They have games, interactives, and kid friendly learning tools. Have your tried out the Crossword Puzzle Maker and Crossword Puzzle Maker Jr.? These are perfect to learn, review, and practice vocabulary and spelling words. The Jr. version is for our little guys with a limit of 7 letters per word. The crossword puzzles can be played online or printed. Make word work fun this week with these gems.

ABC Ya Animate: Let the creativity flow with this new animation tool. Students can draw and use images from the site to make their own animations. Uses in the classroom? How about retelling a story, explaining the steps in a process, illustrating a piece of writing, or animating an historical event?

Little Bird Tales App: One of my favorite sites for students to create their own digital stories is Little Bird Tales and now they have an app! The web version is now easier to use than ever and they now have templates you can use that align to the common core. You can use this site to create electronic portfolios or for students to demonstrate their writing and speaking skills. Good to see them keeping up with the times.

StoryBird: Use amazing artwork to get your students telling stories. StoryBird has been a winner in my book for years. The artwork is beautiful and the site works on any device! Super nice. Now there is a poetry feature. You can have students choose a piece of artwork and then use the words provided to create poems. This is a helpful introductory activity for poetry and lovely resource when a student just doesn’t know what to write. By the way, did you know that artists can submit artwork and actually make cash from their work? Some of you are so creative, why not submit your original artwork and make a little money on the side?
