My Top Ten Bookmarks for Language Arts

As the year ended, I was cleaning up my bookmarks and folders on my computer.  I decided to compile my favorite websites and share/store them here.  These are resources I use all the time in my Resource Language Arts class.

I know many of them are worksheet based but I simply use the content to make SMART Notebook files and group activities.  Rarely do I just print a worksheet and pass it out for students to complete.

Here they are in no particular order:

  1. Achievement Strategies On a recent professional development day on curriculum mapping, I discovered a great website.  This is an amazing list of templates, tools, and resources for everything Common Core! This is how I mapped out 2 years worth of units for my Resource Room.
  2. ReadingResource Recommended by our speech-language pathologist for teaching struggling readers (specifically labeled as a “Dyslexia Resource.”)
  3. WorksheetWorks Customizable, printable, and free worksheets for math, English, geography, puzzles and other random resources.
  4. Free Language Stuff  Very unique worksheets that I talked more about here.
  5. ReadTheory More details here on these comprehension selections
  6. English for Everyone – Related to ReadTheory but expanded to cover grammar, writing, and vocabulary as well.
  7. Readworks I still stand by this favorite for non-fiction reading.  The fact that you can search by grade, skill, and keyword is the best!
  8. eReading – Printable, but also on-line interactive quizzes I found late this year and only used a few times, but definitely worth going back to.
  9. ReadWriteThink – My favorite activity is the flip book generator.
  10. Daily Teaching Tools: 180 Journal Writing Prompts  180 random and unique writing prompts at your fingertips.

Are any of these your favorites too?
