Free children’s short stories with values

 

This site is truly worth investigating.  It offers a wide variety of children’s stories sorted by values!  The values range from bravery and commitment to respectfulness and teamwork.  Each story can be downloaded at no extra cost for own use.  For teachers there are also accompanying workbooks to reinforce the moral of the story.

Ever used Voicethread for a collaborative project?

 

Recently I have discovered the wonderful world of Voicethreads!  It is a simple tool in which students can collaborate on projects through the recording of their voices or the adding of text around a slide / slides.  And not to mention – it is good fun too! 

For an example you can have a look at this Kids Speak Voicethread we took part in:  http://globalclassroom2011-12.wikispaces.com/Kids+Speak%21+2011-2012

Or simply visit www.voicethread.com and get started.
