  1. Cool sites! The classroom where I'm at now doesn't have a smart board so I can't use websites a lot, but I'm hoping soon I'll work in a classroom that does!

  2. Thanks Angel! I also CANNOT wait until I have my own classroom one day. Hopefully this stock pile of resources will come in handy for both of us when the time comes :)
