    • You can use online books that read to your students when you have lost your voice due to your 5 th cold of the year. (because we all know it is easier to come to school ill than plan for a substitute)
    • http://auth.grolier.com/login/bookflix/login.php?bffs=N – Bookflix is great to subscribe to. It has many categories to choose from to supplement lessons.
    • http://www.storylineonline.net/ - This is a great site that is free. Members of the Screen Actors Guild read children’s books aloud.

    • Posting homework and other information is made easy using teacher websites. This way, your students can not say, “I didn’t know we had homework.” or “I lost my spelling words.”

    • E-mail is a great way to communicate with students, colleagues, and parents outside of school hours. Or…not communicate.
    • Yahoo mail
    • Gmail

    • We have to face that it is a gaming world and we are merely players. Online games and activities can help students learn as they play.
