As we run to finish this race, let’s keep our focus on what it is all about to be a Lutheran teacher!

As we head into the close of the school year…how are we running with Him? Looking at next year?

PicLits.com is a creative writing and e-learning site that matches beautiful images with carefully selected keywords in order to inspire you.

A digital library with thousands of FREE children’s books when you register as a teacher. Epic! makes it easy to search book types: picture, chapter, fact, comic, early, and read to me. (PreK – 6th)

Kindersite offers early childhood teachers a resource directory for games, stories, poems, and songs that little ones can play, listen to, and with which to interact. The website looks a bit outdated, but the links are valuable and the games and books are good quality for the youngsters! (Preschool – Grade 2)

Online permission slips — send to principal for approval, parents can sign and pay online.

Great site that uses ELA lessons and units geared from K-8 aligned to the standards. Plus, it’s free!

Safe share is a great resource to remove unwanted ads from YouTube videos. It also allows you to create a clip from a video.

Screencastify is an extension that allows students and teachers to record and share their screen. It is automatically stored in your Google Drive and can transform any visual presentation to include Audio. It’s a great resource for feedback or blended learning.

Slick Write is a website where you will find a number of tools to help older students become better writers. Students can paste their writing directly in the program, and Slick Write will provide writing statistics galore. Also try the word associator tool and rhyming dictionary to supplement student vocabulary.

Dear TEC21 Teachers,

As educators, we all know how hard it is to keep up with the needs of students. TEC21 recognizes the extra effort it takes to learn, stretch and grow to provide Technology Enriched Classrooms. We applaud every school who has given the green light to allow teachers to participate in our workshops, and every teacher who has stepped outside his or her comfort zone to be vigorously challenged. Our goal with you is a contagious classroom full of motivated students.

You have earned this badge. We have provided it in two sizes each for school administrators and teachers. We hope you’ll proudly display it on your school website or personal classroom website.

Thank you for making a TEC21 classroom a badge of honor.

Serving Him with you,

The TEC21 Facilitators
