Puzzlemania!!

It’s time for the Wednesday Website suggestion!! For two years, I was the Technology Specialist at a school in Georgia. During that time, I amassed a large collection of websites that I use with my students. If you want to search through some of them, you can check out my IKeepBookmarks site. Or, you can check back here each week for the Wednesday Website suggestion.
I do three center rotations a day – math, reading and writing, and I try to have a computer center during each rotation.  During writing jigzonecenters, the computer is my content (science or social studies) center.  During reading centers, the computer is my listening center (see this post for the websites I use).  During math centers, the computer is my critical thinking center.  One of my favorite critical thinking websites is Jigzone.  On this website, students can work on tons of different jigsaw puzzles at many different difficulty levels.  It’s a very easy way to differentiate, and still work on visual and critical thinking.  It’s also a way to give students a chance to do puzzles, without all the mess of puzzle pieces everywhere!



Hope you enjoyed this Wednesday’s Website suggestion – check back each Wednesday for a new Wednesday's Website suggestion and click HERE to view previous Website suggestions.
