Glenda's Assistive Technology Information and more...: Reading Websites for Young Readers | The Best of Web 2.0 for schools | Scoop.it

"Learning to read starts with being exposed to great books. Reading should be fun and intimate. The Internet has become such a rich resource that software is rarely needed any longer and I guess this could be the only exposure a child has to books, but I sure hope not! Part of learning to read is the intimacy that comes from sharing a good book. Not just reading it but discussing it, talking about the pictures, relating it to your life."

Are you looking for great online resources that support reading? This post shares 14 websites as well as reading resources for the iPad.

* Bitesize, a site in the UK, "offers reading games and lessons on a variety of topics.  The KeyStage 1 site has lessons on phonics, spelling, alphabetical order, and rhyming words.  The KeyStage 2 site has lessons on deductions, poetry, dictionary and finding information."

An additional 12 sites are listed. If you work with struggling readers or ESL learners you may find some great new resources.

Documenting Learning in Mathematics (or any other subject) using Padlet

Documenting Learning in Mathematics (or any other subject) using Padlet | The Best of Web 2.0 for schools | Scoop.it

I see many benefits in this process of documenting the learning and not just in Mathematics.

In this new era of collaborative teaching, it’s a great way of recording a lesson for other members of the team to view.As a Maths leader/mentor, it’s a useful way of modelling a lesson for teams to discuss.For students, it gives them access to previous learning that they can revisit at different times of the year to review/revise and support their learningFor assessment purposes, it can provide a record of the different stages of learning that took place during a lesson or series of lessons.the use of Padlet itself opens up personalised access for students to work at their own pace ( not evident in this lesson as it was more of a guided lesson rather than an independent task)

Getting Kids Engaged with Primary Sources | Cool Tools by Richard Byrne | The Digital Shift

Getting Kids Engaged with Primary Sources | Cool Tools by Richard Byrne | The Digital Shift | The Best of Web 2.0 for schools | Scoop.it

"I vividly remember being disappointed during my first year of teaching: my students weren’t nearly as excited about primary source documents as I was. Primary source documents, as you know, offer readers a unique, real-world perspective, and I thought my kids would love delving into them. I soon learned that my disappointing results weren’t due to the documents that I’d selected, but rather how I was having students use them. That first year, they weren’t doing anything but reading them. Today, Web-based tools enable students to discover more primary sources than ever before and engage them in dynamic ways. The following items are some of my favorites."
