I am retiring from teaching in the classroom,  so I will not be updating this blog any more. This blog allowed me to direct my students to websties I wanted them to use and allowed them to access the material at school or at home. Using a blog made it easy for students to find the website quickly and complete the activity.  The blog became my file cabinet for keeping up with websites that I used regularily in 5th grade. I also used the blog to store the websites that were passed around via e-mail from the different people in our county.   I'm sure there are many more web tools out there now that are easier to use, but it was hard to start over!

What I learned about integrating technology into the classroom is too numerous to explain here, but in closing, I will say... Best of luck to you in teaching your students in the information age and I hope that you will charge ahead in helping to bridge the digital divide.

Took me a while to figure this one out, but great visualization for prime and composite numbers!
