Comments

Hello Amy, Thanks for signing up and trying out FastFig. We've worked out the issues with FireFox, and i apologize for any inconvenience. Please check us out again! We'd love to work with you and tailor the product to better fit the needs of younger students. (On our page navigate to 'More' then to 'Contact' and e-mail us from there) Sincerely, Jay - from the FastFig Team Jay, , Grades: 0 - 12
Was disappointed that it didn't work in Firefox, but once I logged into Internet explorer it was fine. I teach younger students and it's not as useful as it would be for high school students. Amy, NJ, Grades: 1 - 6

This is an extensive "hotlist" of sites and lessons to be used on the SMART Board. In addition there are many tutorials to help you learn about the SMART Board. This collection covers mainly grades K-5 and all subject areas. However, there are also some resources for secondary level. The topics vary greatly, and the quantity of websites is impressive. Some items will require you to have Smart Board software installed on your computer to open the files. Some files will work using the SMART Notebook Express online viewer reviewed here. Some of the resources shared are created in the United Kingdom. American English speakers may notice some slight spelling differences. Please note: some of the resources are websites that could be used on any brand of interactive whiteboard (or computer) and are not strictly Smart Board resources.

tag(s): alphabet (89), audio books (29), grammar (214), human body (130), iwb (31), manipulatives (36), maps (292), money (186), order of operations (40), poetry (225), preK (292), probability (133), problem solving (278), resources (112), rounding (22), states (165)

These lessons are great for the new SMART Board user or the seasoned pro. Stop and think before you start about how to use them in a student centered lesson, trying some of the lesson formats that help you avoid being "Vanna." View the lessons as is or use them to help you create your own lesson. Use the training videos to help your teaching peers and new SMART Board users learn how to use the SMART Board. Many of these tools could be used on any brand of Interactive Whiteboard.

The virtual geoboard provides an online geoboard experience for elementary and middle school students. Choose a rubber band color and drag to any peg. Move the rubber band to form new shapes and angles. Make any shape created on a regular geoboard to demonstrate lines, angles, triangle formation and more. Fill and unfill shapes using the color tool provided. Choose from a 5 X 5 or 15 X 10 pegboard using the link at the bottom of the page. Want to learn more? See the i link.

tag(s): angles (89), geometric shapes (169), manipulatives (36)

In the Classroom

Display the virtual geoboard on your interactive whiteboard or projector to demonstrate what students create on their individual whiteboard. Younger students can use the online geoboards to practice creating squares, triangles, and more. Older students can use the geoboard to explore various triangle formations and angles. Create a link to this site on classroom computers for students to explore as a center. Use the print option on your computer to print creations formed with virtual geoboard for students to label and identify. Be sure to provide this link on your class website for students to access at home.

Bring learning to life with fun music from Mr. A, Mr. C, and Mr. D's blog from the UK! Song topics include literacy, math ("maths" in the UK), and science. Each entry contains two mp3 versions of a song: one with lyrics and one without. In addition, lyrics are posted along with links to download lyrics and music. See additional videos that demonstrate a similar form of the same type of music at the link "Now Listen to How Its Really Done!" A few of the terms used are distinctly British (such as pounds for money), but most of the songs are universal for any English-speaking classroom. By the way, KS2 is about the same as grades 2-5 in the U.S., but curriculum topics vary.

tag(s): forces (45), geometric shapes (169), literacy (107), matter (59), mean (25), median (22), mode (15), plants (156), punctuation (43), recycling (58), sounds (70), synonyms (38), vocabulary (325)

In the Classroom

Songs on this site would be great to use to introduce and review concepts addressed in the songs: onomatopoeia, prime numbers, or plants. Share songs with students and challenge them to write their own songs. Share them using a tool such as SchoolTube reviewed here. Create a link on your class website for students to access from home.
