Hi Michael,
Following the link at Classroom2.0, i visited your blog and i must say that it is very interesting as you have touched a wide range of subjects.
I would like to invite you to my recently launched Video Vocabulary Building Website for students www.WordAhead.com This website has a collection of short, simple and fun video clips with pictures, illustrations or animations to explain difficult english words. The students are encouraged to play with words, create their own vocabulary videos and upload their work to the website. Teachers may direct activities and assign word projects to the students.
I would appreciate it very much if you would drop by my website and review it. And if you find it interesting and useful, please encourage your students to visit it and benefit from what it has to offer.
I will also welcome any feedback you may have.
I hope my website Catches your Eye Today!
