Did you enjoy our conference?


Take a look at this free conference coming up in a few months.
http://edcampstl.wikispaces.com/edcampstl
It takes place just down the road from us.  It will be similar to what you experienced here but with 100+ educators from the area.  These type of conferences are very unique and powerful.

Will you join me?
Colin will be there.  This has the making for being one of the best conferences you will ever have the opportunity to attend.  That is my challenge to you.  Come and see.

Spelling City-Importing Lists

From Spelling City's Website:

Did you know that you can import lists onto your VocabularySpellingCity homepage? Our list importing feature is one of the biggest time-savers that the site has to offer! You can import lists from teachers, parents, or from our Teacher Resources section. Imported lists are copied onto your homepage for your students to access. Once imported, lists can be customized. You can add or remove words, choose alternative definitions and sentences or write new ones. Customizing the content will not affect the original list, but customized content will appear on any games and activities your students play. Prior customizations are imported along with lists, so if a teacher in your school has already selected the appropriate definition of scale and key for your Geography list, these selections will be imported with the list. To import lists:
Log in to your account.
Find a List you want to import.
Click the Import link next to the list(s) or group(s) of lists that you want.
Once lists have been imported into your account, you can edit the lists through List Management.Our List Sharing Forum is another place to find (and share) popular word lists. John, Mayor of VocabularySpellingCity
