  1. Enchanted Learning is a GREAT resource for teachers. There is a small annual fee but it is WELL worth it. This site is great for all ages and stages and is unending in all the different facets of learning. From Preschool to High School, the only thing limiting you is your imagination.
    I highly recommend it!

    Go try out mrpicassohead.com–an amazing website featuring “art” creation done in a Picasso style. Fourth graders loved it last year during an art assignment.
