On the Tip of My Tongue #edtech

On my lunch break today, I discovered a project within the ciar.ag blog called Tip of My Tongue.  I can't tell you how many times in the past year I could have used this application.

Basically, it allows you to "Find that word that you've been thinking about all day but just can't seem to remember" wYou can search by partial word (input what the word begins with, ends with or contains), use letters to unscramble words (what a great help for the Sunday morning Jumble), include letters that the word must/must not have, find words by meaning and even by length and sounds like.

This tool would be great for helping with story prompts to get students writing or for overcoming writers block.  I will definitely be adding Tip of My Tongue to my ed tech toolbelt.  How about you?
