I wrote in a previous post about MES English, probably the website I refer to the most for free flashcards and worksheets. Mark, the creator of MES, has made a fantastic new free site called Tools for Educators (www.toolsforeducators.com). This site is way cool. You can actually make your own worksheets, dice games, bingo cards and more. I mean, for a guy like me who is completely lost when it comes to graphics (see my banner above, for example) this site is a real find.

A practical use

In my parents and kids class today, I generated a numbers worksheet at toolsforeducators.com and handed it out to the parents. Then I taught the parents how to ask, “What Number?” to their children while pointing to a number on the worksheet. After they were finished with that, I gave each child a crayon, called out a number and had them circle it. This was great, it had the parents and kids involved in the learning. Something I am really into these days.

So check out Tools for Educators, and make something cool for your class today!
