Favorite Links

CNet - Great site for information, help, downloads, and more. I use this site extensively. 

Kathy Schrock's Guide for Educators - This is the first place I look for educational related materials.

FunBrain.com - This is a great site of games for children and adults. And you just might learn something. 

Eduscapes - This site contains a wonderful list of sites arranged in themes. The Literature Ladders contains great links for various books.

Internet Detectives (formerly KIDS Report) - This site contains lists of sites by category, the difference here, though, is that students recommended the sites.

Marylaine Block: Writer, Internet Trainer - This site offers some good information. Be sure to check out the "Neat Stuff I Found on the Net This Week" section, she usually finds great sites.
