A-Z Tech Tools as posted by Ozge Karaoglu

Ozge Karaoglu website

I’ve long followed Ozge Karaoglu and Shell Terrell. I think they are both pioneers in using technology to assist ELL/ESOL/ELL (English Language Learners) and have always found useful resources in their posts and on their websites.

One of my latest findings is Ozge’s A-Z Web Tools- she focuses on a letter at a time and although few links may seem as though they are no longer active or working; the majority of the information is well worth the time you will spend investigating the tools.

I’ve posted a widget to the A-Z Tools here on this website (which you can find on the right hand side of the page. You can also click the picture above and you will be redirected to her website. Happy Tech-ing!

I suggest you take the time to check them out. I know you won’t be disappointed!

Send a “reading” themed holiday e-card!

Reading Rockets

Reading_Rockets_picReading Rockets is one of my FAVORITE websites! It is a great resource for educators; it has basically anything and everything you need to teach reading. Reading teachers can also find information to give parents, pamphlets to hand out on curriculum nights, and information on English-Language Learners.

Currently, you can get a reading themed holiday e-card on Reading Rockets! Customize it and send it to whoever you want!! Take the opportunity to send these e-cards out to colleagues, co-workers, parents, and anyone else you think might like them!

Here is an example of one of the many reading themed e-cards available from Reading Rockets currently…

I can’t think of a better way to promote literacy and Holiday Cheer than this!!

Season’s Readings to all

& May the New Year be filled with

Blessings, Happiness, and Good Health!!
