Make your own photo slideshow at Animoto.
This is fun to use for different units of study as an introduction. My project used some photos of students from the first week of school. This could be sent to parents before open house with announcements. Tikatok was fun to use a publishing tool for students writing. I would use this to send home work that students have done, or to make projects for parents. I like that you can upload your own photos, or use the gallery art. I see students loving this because of the vibrant colors and pictures. Their book will look like a real book.
Google Apps can be used in the classroom when working on projects and units where we are collaborating ideas. It saves face time rather than meeting all together face to face. Out of the 4 tools those far, I see using the videos imbedded by other bloggers the most with my classroom due to age.

After reading through many kindergarten blogs, it becomes a little time consuming as I weeded out the trash. Many blogs sites loaded with cutesy pictures, contests, and not a lot of substance. This one seemed to have something that I think I would use.
