Been off of my computer for a while. With two kids at home and it being summer, only time I have a chance to blog is when both of them are not at home. Today is one of those days. From my time away, here are some of the top posts from my Feed.ly recently.

From A Media Specialists Guide to the Internet comes two lists. 20 Places to Find of the Year Resources is a valuable list for units, activities, games and more. 21 Websites with Summer Reading Ideas for You and Your Students provides lists of books for various grade levels for students and for teachers.

Also from this blog is 50 Google Docs Tips Every Teacher Should Know. This is a list of archived blog posts related to Google Docs.

7.) From Edudemic comes 35 Useful Apps and Web Tools for Math Teachers. This is a good list with short descriptions and the ability to up or down vote the resources. They can be viewed alphabetically, by rank, newest, etc.

10.) From the U.S. History Teachers Blog comes an interesting share from the Washington Post; 31 Charts That Will Destroy Your Faith in Humanity.
