I added a couple of links-((In the appearance, details, and the whole of item names section!)), and the Gemsona area-((above)), as well as the couple of Transformers and Southpark character builder links below..Basically everything I made bold, because I am complete fandom trash…
So I formally took American Sign Language for 2 years because I am in High School and I feel it would be useful to share some Websites, Apps,Videos and other things for people who are interested in learning Sign Language or already know a little bit and are just looking for some links! I did not find these on my own, this is a list a teacher gave me. Hope this can be useful to people and please share so more people are aware of this post in case they are interested in learning! Thank you!
*AliExpress: ships from China; super cheap stuff, I mostly buy washi tape and stickers but they have everything there; make sure to filter your search by selecting free shipping and price low to high (they have the same exact products for completely different prices, depending on the seller)
Alright guys, that’s all the apps, websites and tools I have to share with you. I hope you find this useful!
Let me know if you have any requests for posts. Check out my previous masterposts:
Spell Checker - Checks your spelling and grammar and it gives you options on correcting your sentence.
Learn French - Learn French for free with worksheets, videos and through Skype Calls.
Vocabulary - Find vocabulary from books or type in your own words to get definitions. This is really useful for when you are reading a book and need a list of new vocabulary.
Fact Checker - Checks if any research and facts you have are correct or incorrect.
Dragon Dictation - Speak into the microphone and the app turns what ever you are saying into text. This saves time instead of typing out long essays you could just say it out and let the app type.
Periodic Table - Interactive periodic table where you can see information about each element
OneNote - You can make lists, take notes, and even share your notes with anyone. You can have these notes on any advice. (Also an app)
Popplet - Make a web diagram to put all your ideas on.
Evernote - Take notes and have them on any device. (Also an app)
Jot - Allows you to take notes on the “New Tab” page. (Google Chrome Extension)
Blocking Distracting Websites - Blocks websites you put into the blacklist for a certain amount of time. You are allowed a certain amount of time on the blacklist websites and you get to choose the time to set. (Google Chrome Extension)
Timer - This is a timer that stays in the corner of the web browser. This is really useful for allowing yourself a break and setting a timer for when your break should be finished.
Calendars - This website lets you make free calendars and print them.
Place a sticky note somewhere around your work area that says “Do Homework” or “Stay Focused” so when ever you see it you are reminded to do your work.
Make a list before starting homework or an assignment. Write down what you want to get done, what you are focusing on and what you want to learn after doing the assignment. From experience, when you have a list where you prioritize your work it is easier to focus on it.
Taking a Break:
Watch a TED Talk. They’re educational and entertaining. Use the Topics page to find a talk about something you like.
Take a walk outside to stretch out and to get some fresh air so your mind can focus later.
Grab a snack. Try to eat something healthy and light, avoid anything with a lot of fat and oil.
Draw or colour. If you aren’t very good at drawing then just scribble with a marker on a white board to do something relaxing before getting back to homework which can be stressful.
Do not go on the internet to check your email or notifications because you may get caught up and not realize how much time you are spending on the internet.
Do something you enjoy. This can be play an instrument, write, sing, dance, etc.
Tips/Tricks for School:
Join clubs that focus on things related to the classes you are taking. If your school offers science clubs join them because they could possibly make science class more fun and explain various topics you learned.
Keep a water bottle with you at all times during the school day because you never know when you might feel tired or nervous.
Listen to the daily announcements ! They usually talk about events coming up, what they are selling in the cafeteria, and about new clubs.
Keep extra pencils, sweatpants, pads, gum and granola bars in your locker just in case something occurs.
If you take public transit to school see if there are special offers for students. Most areas have some sort of discounted fare for students.
Pick your outfits for the week so you are prepared in the morning for every day of the week.
Take at least one fun class each year because that class allows you to relax and be in a positive environment. It also reduces your stress you may have from other classes.
Talk to your teacher, guidance counselor, and adults in the school so they can help you out with school work and possibly be easier on you when it comes to marking.
This website has the best sources for current events. Just look up any topic and you will find superb articles and essays concerning it. For both sides of the issue. Also if you are a debate kid, the videos are great to watch.
You may’ve heard about this one. CC has a reputation for being a little stuck up, but I’ve never once not been helped there. Not only does CC have information on college apps, but advice on what classes to attend, AP, SAT, and ACT exam resources, and high school application advice.
My favorite website for all things lists. Checkli allows you to make as many checklists as you would like for free. If you’re a left brainer like me and lists make you feel the way a fresh batch of cookies makes other people feel, you will fall in love with Checkli.
For all of your calculator needs. This is a free online scientific calculator that is convenient and easy to use. The website it’s on also has clear, concise explanations of how to use a scientific calculator for algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and finance.
This is exactly what it sounds like. A free online library. Not only is this great for keeping up with class reading, GP is my No.1 go-to site for research papers. Just search whatever subject/ topic you need (no matter how specific) and use whatever books you’d like to. I have never been disappointed.
Pro-tip: Citing books instead of online articles will make it seem as though you went beyond just googling the subject, and took the time to do comprehensive research. Also, it is unlikely that your classmates will have cited the same sources as you. Your teacher(s) will be impressed, I promise.
If you’ve ever read a ‘For Dummies’ book, you know how helpful they are. If you don’t want to pay for one, you can find a lot of their explanations online, for free. Everything from gardening to calculus, made easier.
This is another one you’ve probably heard of, but just in case you haven’t, this one is a life saver for group projects, and my teachers love it for editing. Google Drive wins all the awards, and is free. In fact, I used it for a year in lieu of the overpriced Pages, Word, Keynote, Microsoft Powerpoint, and excel.
Vocabulary cards for everything ever. Quizlet has a set of vocabulary cards for every subject you will encounter in high school (most of them, anyway.) Quizlet also allows you to develop your own set of vocabulary cards, specific to your needs.
Hey guys, it’s Violet! As an avid studyblr, I’m always looking for new ways to revolutionize my studying techniques. Quite often, I’ll find amazing sites/resources, and then forget about them when i really need them. Since I’m sure many of you can relate, I’ve created this master post of links to various study helpers. Use Ctrl + F ( or whatever the “ find “ function is on your computer ) to navigate, because it’s a long post. I’ve broken it up into: General, When You Need To Work, Books, Mind Maps, Notes, Reminders, Research, High School, College, Subjects ( English, Math, History, Language, Art, and Science ), Get Involved, and Apps. Enjoy~
