- PlanbookEdu : This website has practically saved my life this year. Yes, it's not free, but it's worth every penny. You can input your state standards above your lessons and it keeps track of how many you've covered in your lessons. You can attach files that you need. You can print and email the whole plan book or a selection. In a word, priceless.
- Online Timers : You set the amount of time and choose what type of timer you want (egg timer, countdown, bomb, etc.). I project these on the screen to help students keep track of the time while working in pairs/small groups.
- Classroom Booksource: You put your ISBN numbers into an online database, and it allows students to check out books from your classroom library. It shows the AR, small group, and grade level of the books. It allows students to search for books.
- What Should I Read Next?: This website allows students to type in the title or author of their favorite books and it recommends other titles based on the style of that book or author.
