In addition to myhappyplanet.com look into www.edufire.com! Both are great sites with awesome tools to learn a variety of languages. The web has made learning a new language so much easier and I'm really enjoying the convenience!

Hey, I love the Zombie Survival Guide and also recommend World War Z by the same author.

Also, where do you guys get your bumper music?

Wicked Decent Learning said...

All of our bumper music is coming from Freeplaymusic.com. It's a great place to get free music for classrooms and education.

In the vein of Zombie Survival Guide, you might like to read "Dies The Fire" and its two sequels. Great survival books that happen in a "real world" setting.

Great pronunciation of my name! And my grandmother who still lives in Claremont, NH is a Mainer too.
