19 Oct The Crafty Classroom is a website entirely dedicated to crafts you can use in your classroom!”  
#elemchat #spedchat #artchat
From the site: “These crafts go alongside themes and literature resources you’re already using in your classroom, in fact they come straight out of our personal homeschool!  We add new crafts weekly, so please subscribe for updates!”
The site is a bit advertisement heavy but if you can ignore some of that you can find some pretty neat crafts for kids. Navigate by theme.

 I have used Woo Jr. for over 2 years now via their weekly emails. They always have nice, quality printables and ideas for the seasons, holidays and regular ‘ol days too. 
According to the site, “Woo! Jr. is a network of kids activities websites packed full of coloring pages, kids crafts, games, printables, party ideas, and educational resources.”
Woo Jr. is divided into 5 areas.

I highly recommend subscribing to their weekly emails.  I really enjoy using their resources especially when I may need a quick filler idea.

My students love this movie especially the first one. It’s a great movie to watch and discuss appropriate/inappropriate behavior and consequences. Also it is a great starting point for discussing feelings.

07 Apr I’ve shared Activity TV in the past but thought I would share it again because my students have been using it this week to create origami frogs and airplanes.
They are loving the activities (tutorials), which they can stop and rewind to understand a tricky fold. We are using a projector with our computer so the tutorial is nice and large and we do not move on until everyone has the fold. Students are helping one another and they are all enjoying these lessons. The kids want to make these at home to so I put links to the projects on our blog: The Wonderful World of Near North.
I’m looking forward to doing some of Activity TV’s science projects as well as the magic tricks. This is a great site for helping kids learn to follow directions step by step as well as working to help each other.
There are 17 categories to choose with many activities in each category. Categories include paper airplanes, origami, crafts, puppets, juggling, cartooning, magic, jewelry, cheerleading, family gifts, room projects, music, dance, trivia, science, crafts, and puppets.

08 Nov Paper Crafts is a new site featuring…you guessed it …paper crafts.  The site was created by Sarah Craftylocks of New Zealand.  Here you will find paper crafts for your students that are fun to make and look great when finished.  The written directions and photos are very clear and there are also some video tutorials as well as some downloads.  Some of the categories are:  collage, mobiles, cards, origami, paper mache, seasons and holidays.
This is a nice site for finding crafts for students.
Below are a few examples of what is available.

03 Nov This is a really nice site for crafts for kids.  I was looking for some Thanksgiving crafts and I hit a bonanza here at Danielle’s Place.  You can become a member (23.95 a year indiv.) but there is plenty of free stuff available.  Also plenty of turkey crafts but also some nice baskets and other things too.  I really liked the Thanksgiving Memory Baskets.  It was a really neat idea. Check out Daniells Place and keep it in mind when you need a craft.

25 Oct KizClub is a wonderful site for color and B/W printables.  I discovered this site through EFL Classroom 2.0. The quality of these printables is excellent.  There are books to print as well as read on line, audio included.  Categories include, abc’s, phonics, topics, crafts, stories and props, nursery rhymes, flashcards, and teacher extras.  This is definitely a site worth checking out.  

Screenshot of stories to read and print…just a small sample.
