    These links are amazing ! thank you for sharing.
    Home School Creations has some fantastic literacy resources that can be used in L3 Rotations. Their Read Write Build boards are great and they come with some fun picture cards that the kids can use.
    p.s Sorry I can't post links yet! a quick google search will take you straight there

    Though it looks like this bird is floating without moving its wings, that is an artifact of the video shutter speed. Cameras run together many still images each second to create the appearance of motion. The bird happens to be flapping its wings at the same number of flaps per second as the camera is taking pictures. Each picture shows the wings in the same spot, though they went up and back down in the time between images.

    You can string 'em together in a nice blog - will be well received. Do you have one ?

    Not enough hours in the day. This pinned thread allows me to find, add, and move on. I know where the links are stored, anyone who wants to use them can, freely, and I don't have to remember to write down a link, only to have lost it when I could really use it. I do wish I had started with the links more organized, and I have gone back and done some editing over the last couple of years. I am like the gardener - I go through and weed out broken links, or things that have expired. This all started when I went looking for posters which were free for the asking, because I was going into a new room that needed topic posters to look better. It grew into this thread when I found the posters and so much more. Many teachers can use the video links, in all or part, to add to a lesson. I am also an ESL teacher, and I grab those resources whenever I happen on to them. Many of the resources come to me through my email inbox, others through sources I subscribe to. The hardest part is that I am a science teacher through and through, so that is the meat of the thread, but I have other interests, or come across things that I know can easily be used is history, music, art, ELA - I have several endorsements and varied interests.

    Glad you have found the thread and it interests you!

    Yes, time is a luxury these days. Incidentally, for a few months, I had a thought to create a blog to pen some of my teaching, running and life ideas, but never really gotten around to it. It's just not the top 3 things on my mind that needs to be tackled needfully, with the available time and energy on hand...

    i stand corrected .. this got me thinking a bit; maybe i ought to find the time to do one of these things that i keep putting off for another day. Will see if i can get up a simple blog to string these links up with proper attribution, will be a convenient spot to point students to.
