Teacher Technology Favorites Linky

Here I am back with another linky party today! That's four in a row if you count Manic Monday which of course I do. This linky is so much fun! It is courtesy of Mrs. Parker over at Learning with Mrs. Parker. The graphic is just so adorable! What teacher doesn't love a cute clip art apple!

Here are my top five teacher technology favorites:

1. bubbl.us
This is a great website that allows you to create bubble maps for different concepts.
Everything is completely customizable which is wonderful! Did I mention that this baby is FREE! Why yes it is! The possibilities are endless with this program! You should really check it out!

2. Triptico app
This is a downloadable app that features over 20 different programs you can use.
Some examples include student grouping, a class timer, word magnets and a scoreboard. 
There is also a plus version that you can sign up for.
Here are some of the option included in the plus program:

3. Common Core State Standards app

I love this gem. It is so convenient to have instant access to the common core state standards on the go. They are organized into math and language arts and then broken down by grade level.
Here is an example of the kindergarten math standards:
This is a gold mine to any teacher. I strongly recommend you download it because it is FREE! Click on the top image to download.

4. Elmo document camera
I love the Elmo! No not the lovable red furry monster. The sleek white document camera. Check it out!
This is a wonderful device. You can put any piece of paper, object, basically anything under the camera and it will project it onto your wall or whiteboard. You can even put a tiny picture book under it and it will instantly turn into a giant book for everyone to see. You can also fill out work sheets whole group and follow along as it captures every motion you make. This is expensive but Donors Choose anyone? It would be a great addition to any classroom!

5. PicMonkey

I have to agree with Mrs. Parker: PicMonkey is the best! When I found out Picnik was closing it was like my world was coming to an end. Enter PicMonkey to save the day. It is this amazing picture edition and collage making site. This website has everything from adding fonts, borders, stickers, removing blemishes, making yourself skinnier, drawing tool and more. Hurry! Head there now before it's too late!

So there you have it, my top 5 teacher tech resources. I hope you found something new to use in your classroom.

Tomorrow I have a fun freebie planned! Be sure to follow me so you can be the first to know! And leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all! It makes my day!


  1. I learned about so many new, free tools to use. I can't wait to try bubbl.us.
    I agree that the Common Core app is a great tool to have. It comes in handy when you are in a meeting and want to look something up.

    Happy Teaching.

    1. So glad I could help share some hints. Bubbl.us is really great! I'm sure you can find a use for it.

  2. I have never heard of bubbl.us. I will have to check that out! The common core ap is pretty handy!
