Eight Chrome Extensions and Sites You May Not Know (October 2021)

by Sara Qualls

Happy fall, y’all! I’m glad to be back again with more finds for you this month, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Let’s jump right in!

Chrome Extensions to Try

Weave Highlighter. When reading a book or even a PDF, it’s easy to highlight, but what about things you find on the web? Now you can highlight whatever you’re reading online with Weave Highlighter. Highlight and annotate with multiple colors and revisit them later with just a single click.

Magic Actions for YouTube. Take your YouTube experience to the next level with this extension. My favorite features of this extension are the ability to hide comments and the ability to increase or decrease the volume by hovering your mouse over the video.

Google Arts & Culture. Add a little culture to your day by discovering beautiful artwork each time you open a tab in Chrome. You can customize your settings to see the same masterpiece each day or roll the dice and get a new piece of art with each new tab.

Chrome Extensions

OpenDyslexic. Do you or one of your students have dyslexia? OpenDyslexic, an open-sourced font, was created specifically for those that struggle with dyslexia by using heavy-weighted bottoms in certain letters. Try this Chrome extension to increase readability.

TinEye. You stumble upon a great image you want to use, but have no idea who created it or where it came from. TinEye to the rescue! This extension helps you find out where an image came from, how it’s used, and can even find a version that is higher resolution.

Must-Visit Websites

I’m Remembering. Some might say that the 1980s-90s were the best period of time to live in. Whether you lived through it or just want to know what all the hype is about, this website will instantly bring you back to that era. Go ahead and take a break as you hit up this blast from the past!


The Awkward Yeti. It’s time to celebrate those awkward moments in life. This comic strip website will have you smiling as you relate to some of the best and worst struggles in life.

The Awkward Yeti

Freckle. Here is a website that younger students might just be begging to hop on and learn. You’ll find games and activities for math, English/Language Arts, social studies, and science.
