Spelling Practice
This free website, SpellingCity.Com allows you to create spelling lists. The site gives the student a choice to either take a test on a list of words, be taught a list of words (the word is displayed, spelled out, used in a sentence) or play a game based on the word list. The list can be short or long. This is a newer website (2009) and has the potential to grow in popularity as more teachers and parents discover it.

Create free educational games, activities and diagrams. Just use the site's customisable templates. Easy to create and it's all free!!!! The example game above is called Animated Book. I bet you can think of a lot of ways to copy text into this game, and use it for learning with your students.

Like Wordle, but different. Here's an example of a tag cloud created in Tagxedo. I really like the ability to change the shape into an image.
Cool stuff to use with the SMARTboards.
