Websitepalooza in the afternoon

In honor of Website Wednesday, I have a plethora of sites to share with you today. Not all at once, mind you. A sprinkling throughout the day. You may even be able to integrate some with your classes or… as you review assignments.

Tetris – I know this was a popular samwiched somewhere between Chess/Checkers and Nintendo’s Gameboy. Shur looks old today and yet it still captivates my attention. Keep your Call of Duty. Give me Tetris. (I wouldn’t say no to a quick game of chess or checkers either.)

I didn’t do all of my research on this site, FreeArcade.com, but it looks like they got somethin’ for everypeep – incuding those that need a little distraction this week.

This site looked good too: Chess.com – Have a looksee.

Give this site a moment to load and then you should be good to go: Online Checkers– I played by different rules, but this game will do for now. This one is good too: Checkers Online and other Board Games

Have fun, and remember, YOU… ARE… JUST… TAKING… A… BREAK, ok?, ok.

If you know of other related sites, feel free to share!

In honor of Website Wednesday, I have a plethora of sites to share with you today. Not all at once, mind you. A sprinkling throughout the day. You may even be able to integrate some with your classes or… as you review assignments.

First up: Wordreference.com

Need to know a word in another language? This is one of many resources out there.

There’s also Google Translate

If these two sites are not much fun, well then go play some Word Girl: Synonym Toast (I had trouble with the game, but it could serve as a good break) Remember, this week’s mantra is ACTION DISTRACTION!
