Gamequarium Undergoes a Major Revision

I am in the process of redesigning the start page of Gamequarium. The redesign will allow for easier navigation directly to the desired page. In addition, new sections have been added (or will soon be added) of interest to parents, teachers, and students. The new sections include:

Reference for Kids
For Parents
For Teachers
Technology Tutorials
Freeware/Shareware Downloads

For all the fans of the Gamequarium Classic Page, a link will be provided so that you can enter the site through that page.

I can't wait to see the new page. The old one has helped me a lot in my classroom.

Please consider linking to Open Court when the renovations are complete...

Teachers from Hawaii to the Bronx are using Open Court to help close the achievement gap, integrate technology into the language arts curriculum, and supplement their teaching of the Open Court Reading program.

The site is the largest collection of free pre-K-6 Open Court Resources available on the internet. Created by Mathew Needleman, LAUSD teacher and Antioch University instructor, the site features literally hundreds of resources including powerpoints, unit opener ideas, chants, lesson plans, independent work time activities, links, sight word teaching systems, picture files, movies, the Open Court Discussion Board, and more. All resources are free and aligned to specific grade levels and Open Court units and the site is compatible with both the 2000 and 2002 editions of the program.

The site was recently written about in the magazine of UTLA, the largest teachers’ union in the country. It has been recognized on the web site of the National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE), SBC's Blue Web'n blue ribbon sites, and it and consistently ranks in the top 20 educational sites on the internet.

Please spread the word about the site to your teachers and parents. The site is updated almost daily and continues to grow thanks to word of mouth and the contributions of teachers.
Thanks for sharing your website. There are many resources on your pages that I will be adding to Readquarium, the section of Gamequarium that is devoted to literacy.
