Resources for Teaching Language Arts


Primary



Create a Pet- http://www.layoutcodez.net/pets/ - Students can create a virtual pet. They are provided with embedding code to add it to a wiki or blog posting. They can then write a descriptive essay introducing their pet to the world.

www.blabberize.com - Students can upload a picture and make it talk. They can use these "talking pictures" to narrate their writing.

Presentations:


Jefferson County Schools in TN has put together a great collection of language arts resources. This page has a huge collection of powerpoint presentations on almost every LA topic from Grades k-12. If you like what you see and decide to use some of these resources, let them know. It is always great to hear that others find your hard work valuable
