Christmas Resources


It's that time of year!  Do you need some fun Christmas sites for your students that are still educational?

Well here is one of the best collections I've found from the wonderful KB KonnectedKaren Bolotin is the creator of this site made in Jog the Web.  


KB...Konnected



I've written about Jog the Web in the past.  Click here to learn more about Jog the Web.


Our students are enjoying exploring these sites.  Did I mention that there are currently 151 sites to visit?  (Now that's a collection!)



One thing we taught our students is how to go from Jog the Web directly to the site being shown since it is often difficult to view the entire site on Jog the Web.  Here is a screen capture showing how to do this.


Last week we used a site  on the Jog which allows you to create your own gingerbread cookie.  Students designed their cookie and then used the snipping tool (read about the snipping tool here) to take a screen capture.  We then took the picture and made it our desktop background.  


Our students are really becoming quite skilled with all of these tools and settings.  


Happy Holidays and enjoy KB Connected's collection.  I would like to personally thank Karen for all that she does to share technology and resources with us.  She is amazing!
