I've created a livebinder that can hopefully be used as a valuable gifted education resource.

Hey Jennifer. Its great to see that you encourage your students to write. People hardly write these days and they dont even read as much as we used to. So as teachers we must encourage them to write.

If you want to entertain gifted students for literally hours, try the following two sites.

wordle.net can be used in so many ways. My students type vocabulary word lists, write poems, and create character trait posters.

piclits.com is absolutely AWESOME. It is a wonderful site for reluctant writers. My students amazed me with the poetry they created on this site.

Let me know if you find other ways to use these sites.

Thanks!

Information once difficult to find, maintain, and disseminate is now found by a voice command to a mobile device. The model of the teacher as the content expert standing in the front of the room, lecturing to…See More
