I've got a website review for you today. And to be all upfront about it- I was contacted and asked to write the post, and they are compensating me for it. But- with that being said- I was planning on writing about it anyway. So I'm not feeling particularly conflicted, and we all know I am compulsively honest- so I'm going to tell you exactly what I think.
I've been talking about all my social media adventures lately- the instatwitterlinking, as it is now. I ran across an article about Pixiclip by Monica Burns from Class Tech Tips on my Linked In groups a couple of weeks ago when I first started reading group posts. Monica writes an excellent article every day about some sort of technology that I now want to try. And then I end up tweeting about it. Which I believe is how it came to the attention of the Pixiclip people in the first place to make them ask me if I wanted to do a blog post about it.
Click on the picture of Monica to go to her site and see her Pixiclip article that got this ball rolling in the first place. But then click the home button and read ALL of her articles on ALL of the fabulous technology that's out there waiting for you to use with your kids. And then tweet it. Become addicted to hashtags like me. #completelyrational #itsnotweird

Before I show you the two Pixiclips that I made, here is a very nice tutorial I found on YouTube:
If you know about the Educreations App, you can see right away the similarity. In fact, here's a sample Educreations lesson from my second graders this year when we were studying about Solids, Liquids, and Gases:
