YouTube -Described Captioned Media

YouTube – dcmpnad’s Channel.

I will bet you didn’t know that the described captioned media program has some sign language videos available for free on you tube.  I learned a new sign while I was watching the Vocabulary Builders in Sign Language for English. (I knew how to sign ‘character’ but not ‘characteristic’).

The YouTube  movie is not searchable but I imagine the DVD that you can borrow from DCMP would be more effectively utilized.  I think its great that DCMP is moving along side us in this century!

Tell how you liked it.

Online Math Games – Free and for Kids

Online Math Games – Free and for Kids.

You’ll find really fun games here for various levels of basic operations (+,-,/,*) and the ability to report scores to the teacher.  There is a pacman like mixed operation game.  The player has to eat a question mark that gives the answer to which ‘ghost’ he might destroy.  Hey, if people weren’t watching me, I’d still be playing. 🙂
