Use the news and improve reading scores. Jellybean Scoop offers different news articles, written daily, at four different Lexile reading levels. Levels for articles are Starter, Single, Double, and Triple. Find articles in categories of World News, Nature and Science, Odd News, Inspiration and Health, and Fun Facts. Each story has an audio recording and the ability to record yourself reading it. Find activities such as vocabulary, sentence scramble, and a quiz. See the many Demo Videos to really understand the powerful features on Jellybean Scoop. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): audio books (32), DAT device agnostic tool (198), differentiation (47), news (261), reading comprehension (116), sound (101)

In the Classroom

Achieve three goals here: differentiate, help students improve their reading comprehension, and keep students current with what is happening in our nation and the world. When assigning articles, choose to have the class read at one reading level, or choose individuals and set the reading level for them. Set up different articles at different learning stations on the computers in your room. Since Jellybean Scoop is cloud based, even absent students can complete the missed work easily. Teachers of gifted students can use this site to accelerate or enrich reading for students. Teachers of Learning Support students and ESL/ELL students will love this alternate way for their students to meet current events requirements. Teachers with free accounts can have up to 25 students. If you have a larger class, there is a "work around" for this. If you have a Gmail account, you can add subaccounts (see directions to do this here). You could create another Jellybean account with this subaccount, but you would end up with two different accounts on Jellybean Scoop.

Take your standard PowerPoint to new interactive levels with this tool! Add video or audio, write on your slides as you present, and even insert quizzes and polls. Take the limited PowerPoint presentation and "mix" it with the best parts of a live lecture in one tool. Each PowerPoint slide contains additional tabs for the added information. Since each slide is independent and contains the video, audio, or screencast, those slides can still be reordered by dragging them into the correct order. Insert information from Khan Academy or CK-12 as well. Easily control the number of attempts with quizzes, provide hints, add a timer, randomize the questions, or give feedback. Analytics are provided as well to see student interaction with the material. Each Mix lives online and can be accessed with any browser. Give the link to students for access. Mixes cannot be saved on your computer. Find ways to use with popular Learning Management Systems (LMS) like Moodle, Blackboard, Canvas, and more with these tutorials found here. Note: Mixes can only be created with a PC and PowerPoint 2013 (not free).

tag(s): images (266), quiz (84), quizzes (96), sound (101), video (254)

In the Classroom

Use this tool to create Flipped Lessons, moving some material like knowledge activities, as a pre-class activity. Office Mix is a valuable tool when you will be out of the classroom. Your plans are ready to go! Absent students can easily follow the content from the day. Differentiate for your classroom by creating a Mix that can be used for students to review as needed. Students who need it can review while others can focus on the material that they need. Use this tool wherever a PowerPoint with more detailed explanations are needed. Club advisors can use this tool to show 'how to' information for extracurriculars or field trips. Use this tool to show how to complete forms correctly, saving time and frustration! Students can create a Mix to share information researched for a class presentation.

This word cloud generator is similar to other word clouds except it includes a fascinating mathematical twist. Enter any URL or text to begin a word cloud, and then start playing with the different options. In addition to changing the font, take the time to play with the angle parameters. Move the arrowheads and rotate to view different orientations of the same text. Other options limit the number of words, the amount of words per line, or spiral and scale of the image. When finished, download and save the image as a PNG or SVG file.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): angles (88), DAT device agnostic tool (198), measurement (157), word clouds (10)

In the Classroom

This site is perfect for use on an interactive whiteboard or projector to combine language and math lessons. Allow students to play with the options for angles to view changes made to word clouds. Create and print word clouds with different angle setups to display on your classroom bulletin board. Have gifted students read how the word cloud generator works and see if they can create their own.

Looking to identify a wild bird? Visit the Merlin site to download the Merlin ID app for any phone or device. When using a mobile device, the Merlin app asks a series of five questions starting with when and where, followed by choosing a basic body type and other questions. View the generated list of possibilities to find your bird and identify it! Merlin is capable of recognizing 400 of the most commonly encountered birds in the US and Canada. When you choose the bird, data is recorded with Merlin. Read more about your identified bird and listen to its bird song. The Merlin bird identifier is designed for beginning and intermediate bird watchers. Note: When using Merlin on the web upload a photo of the bird, and then follow the prompts to place "pointers" on the bird image. The web version cannot be used to identify a bird and is different from The Merlin ID app.

tag(s): birds (50), DAT device agnostic tool (198), ecosystems (88), habitats (84)

In the Classroom

Use this app when out in the field with your students for any reason and for any subject. Encourage observation by students in identifying birds that are located in your community. Follow the identification of the bird by creating related art, music, poetry, or stories. In Biology, identify how the bird fits into the food chain. Identify the plant species that each bird uses for food or shelter. In Math, map the sightings of birds, looking at density of various species.

Complete each of the tasks to gain points and move to the next area. Designed for beginners and experts students will have to stick with it to be able to move past the beginning as the backstory is lost moving from one action assignment to another. The story can be the one item that makes this site different from other coding challenges. After most of the challenges, the solutions are shown.
