5 Days Left and Visual Bookmarking

Hi all!  Don't forget to to enter to win this HUGE giveaway at Rockin' Teacher Materials.  Only 5 days left to get your name "in the hat".  While you're checking that out, be sure to hop over to my Teachers Pay Teachers store and see all the stuff I've put up.  It's really a random mix of stuff.

Also, I stumbled across this really great way to share bookmarks a few months ago, and I am excited to tell you about it.  It's called Tizmos.  It's like Delicious and Portaportal, but the best part is: IT'S VISUAL!  It's great for all ages of students and even adults.  The thing I like about Tizmos is that when you add a link, it generates an image of the website to serve as a visual remind of what the link is.  I know that I sometimes remember what a website looks like, but I cannot remember the name.  Tizmos solves that problem for me!  I've set all of my classroom computers to go to our Tizmos as the homepage.  I've included all of the links we frequently use, and I don't have to constantly remind my students of web addresses.  Another great way to use this would be sending the link for parents, it's great for home-school resources.  I strongly encourage you to check it out!  Let me know what you think! :-)

See how nice it looks?
