Thankful Thursday Gratitude Party

It's time to say thanks to a blogger who inspired me this week. Matt over at Digital: Divide and Conquer has been teaching me some pretty cool tricks the last couple of weeks. I love that there are teachers out there are passionate about using technology in the classroom and are willing to share their experiences through blogging. 

One of my new favorite teaching tools, thanks to Matt, is a visual organizer for bookmarks called Symbaloo. Symbaloo is providing my students with a single page filled with all the links they may need as resources for an inquiry unit. I don't have to worry about my Fab Fours coming with something unsavory while searching, or using valuable time sifting for relevant links. 

Thank you, Matt!! Check out Matt's post on Symbaloo here

Which blogger are you thankful for this week? Link up and share!
Here are the guidelines:

1) copy and paste the link to the post that inspired you into your Thankful post
2) send your thank-ee a little note so that they can bask in your gratitude. We all love a little love, don't we?
3) use the button and link back to the Thankful Thursday Grateful Party post of the week
4) link up!

This first Grateful Party will start this Thursday. I can't wait to see who you are thankful for!

  2. Heather,

    Thanks so much! I'm so glad that you found Symbaloo so useful (resrouceful). I just love it because it makes teaching easy (and much less stressful). Plus, I'm a visual learner and so are som many of our kids. This also levels the playing field for all kids when it comes to accessing sites (without the hassle). I also love that boards can be shared so we can all use them.

    This is such a cool link-up. I'm going to have to jump on it!
