1. Classroomscreen is a link that was shared last week by Gail Moore. This is an amazing website that gives you a multitude of tools in one place. Do you need a clock? In one of my buildings, I don't have a clock. It's nice to have one that I can drag up when I need one. How about a timer? Or a stoplight? This site is full of tools for every teacher's needs.
2. February is Black History Month and we have our own local hero, Leland Melvin. This amazing site was shared by MHES Title I teacher, Melanie Tinsley!
4. Here is a resource I have created in Google Draw. This can be used in reading or history. Or you could use it to highlight a famous mathematician or scientist. To be able to use it, first click on the image. Then go to File -Make A Copy.
4. Here is another resource I created for math. Research demonstrates that having students create their own math word problems better helps them to solve math problems. Give students this template and allow them to create a word problem Ask them to delay providing the answer to the problem. Then do a gallery walk around the room allowing all students to solve each other's word problems that were created. At the end of the period, have the authors of each problem go back and type in the answer. Then let students check their work done on the gallery walk. To use the template, click on the image and then go to File -> Make A Copy.
5. Friday at the Movies - You Can Learn Anything
I love this very short video!
Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools, located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus, I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
