I am expected to take my 6th Reading classes to the computer lab weekly. Our class periods are 55 minutes. What are some suggested websites that we can use while we are there?

Wordle--my kids love it to practice vocabulary and spelling.
Glogster is fun for digital collages.
ReadWriteThink dot org has great interactive activities
Google a webquest for a unit you are working on

you'll find a ton of sites archived here that I use with my three sections of sixth grade reading. Bear in mind we have one-to-one computers on a daily basis, so some of these make more sense for our classes than they would for you.

Feel free to PM me with questions.

Wow I would love that. I take mine to www.edu.glogster.com to make BOOK posters about the book they are reading. I take them to www. animoto.com to open the free teacher accounts and they make book commericals with the free stuff there. I also use Kidblog with my 8th graders to blog about what we have learned or what they are reading. I wish I could get into a lab we have to share 5 computers in the room and its tough.

Happy Reading. dk

I would use the weekly lab time for a variety of topics (depending on the week and the topic of study). Drill and Practice in reading skills, reading and responding to nonfiction; creating a wordle or glog, discussions on a classroom blog, typing an essay, etc. Good Luck!
