I think a very important part of teaching is taking advantage of all the new technology available to teachers. This includes many interactive, educational websites. One of these is Kerpoof. I am currently observing in a Kindergarten classroom in an inner city school. All the classrooms have Promethean Boards. We use ours a lot for instruction and to reinforce students' learning through practice activities. Kerpoof is one of the websites we use for spelling. However, there are many other activities that can be used on Kerpoof. There are also activities to practice other skills like writing and drawing. Teachers can also access lesson plans, activities, and other ideas for the classroom. It is a mostly free website. There are some parts of the website that require a membership fee. It is a great tool to use in the classroom, especially if a Promethean Board or Smart Board is available.
