1. This is a very cool game that teaches logic and problem solving. This would be best played by students in grades 3-5. Students are to move numbered tiles around the board to double them until they create a tile with 2048. I have not yet been able to make this tile myself. I can get lost in this game!
2. Trap the leprechaun is another logic game that the older students really love. You have to be careful though as this site has ads. Don't let it scare you though, it is a good opportunity to teach and internet safety lesson!
3. Here is a Google Doc I have created for you. Students can create a Help Wanted poster for a character in a book. To use the document, click on the image and then File->Make A Copy.
4. Here is another document you can use. Google Slides includes the same drawing tools as does Google Draw. Have the students create snapshots of various scenes in their book. To use, click on the image and then File->Make A Copy.
Friday at the Movies- I wonder, how many of us are truly extroverted introverts?
_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.
