    I have been collecting a ton of math resources and wanted to create a site where I could store all of them in one neat little place. It's still under construction. I'm playing around with color and that sort of thing. Let me know what you think of it so far! :)

    Good content. You might want to make the headings in a larger font. Maybe a different color, they don't pop-if you know what I mean.
    also increase the size of your middle panel- I'd rather have larger icons/font that lots of crinkled paper border.

    It's a great website. My husband is in an web design analysis class and I am just thinking about the things he has to critique.

    I love the word walls!

    Great job. I have a third grader who loves math (didn't get that from me). I found some games on a couple of the sites that he really enjoyed.

    Peachy,

    LOVE IT!!!! We are required to do certain types of Math activities/Center activities this year (Math scores have room for improvement). You have just given me another ton of resources to choose from.

    No, the stuff on my site are resources that I found scattered throughout the internet. What I did was found all of the neatest ideas and am putting them into one spot. It's obviously a work in progress and I have already made a ton of changes, I just need to get it uploaded.

    So, I just uploaded my updated version. I made the headings on top easier to read, I took all activity ideas and transferred to resources and then deleted the activity page. I also added the new page, task cards.

    OK, I know this is off topic...
    but the fruit shoot game is fun. However, though I do know my facts, I stink at shooting! :lol::lol::lol:
    Do you mind if we send our kids to your site, or would you prefer that we just post our own links? Cause I am definitely into the fruit shoot :)

    I really don't mind if you send your kids to my site. I plan to add more online games. Right now, I'm more focusing on the teacher resources page.

    Which page layout do you prefer?

    Resource #1

    Resource #2 OH and ignore the fact that the page seems to stick over the layout it's ontop of. I can't change that yet or else all of the other pages will look really weird. I'll change it if you guys like number two better.
