Rhymenlearn offers twenty-five "squeaky clean" math and science rap videos about a variety of topics. They are constantly adding to this site, so you will probably find even more than twenty-five! Sort by math or science using the tabs at the top. Subtitles are given along with the YouTube video. These videos are perfect for the classroom. While seeing a Heart Rap or Pi Rap may make you giggle, many learn best from hearing words to music. These are simple to understand and include many words and diagrams.You can also sign up for more free math and science raps with your email (no SPAM). YouTube videos use Flash. If your school blocks YouTube, then they 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.

Create online image phrases with this clever tool. Type any phrase into Phrasr's search box to find images to "match" the words. Narrow down your image choices for each word by choosing from many offerings. When complete, provide a title and name to publish your image phrase. The one misnomer here is that you can actually use a sentence, not just a phrase. Published phrases show the words in a slow left to right scroll easily read by anyone, with your selected images above each word. Make rebus-style messages by simply keeping the word with the "no image" option in some spots. View archives to find image phrases created by others (viewer discretion advised). Send phrases via email or other social tools when complete. You can also click to see your just-published phrase in the "archive" to copy the url directly. See a sample here. Our editors found that the image selections are rather unusual, unlike typical "clip art" collections.

tag(s): figurative language (16), images (265), phrases (6), poetry (227)

In the Classroom

Use this site to make lessons grab your students' attention (which isn't always easy). Create images for content-related phrases and display on your interactive whiteboard for students to guess the phrase. "What goes up must come down" could introduce a lesson on Newton's laws! Use as a unit starter to provide image phrases related to upcoming lessons. Have students create their own phrases with images for classmates to guess the phrase (cover the sentence with a notebook tool or similar). Use pictures to display your morning message. Use this site during a poetry unit to talk about the many visual images used in poetry and for students to compose figurative language phrases that they can test in Phrasr. In art class, use Phrasr to discuss the way we relate images to meaning.

Visit Common Core Instructional Support Tools to promote understanding and implementation of the Common Core Standards. Although produced by North Carolina Schools, the information is relevant to anyone implementing Common Core. It has several sections and includes information divided by subject and grade level. Most documents are in PDF format, making them easy to print and use. The "unpacking" section is especially useful as it takes each standard then puts the information into words explaining what a student must know and be able to do to meet each standard. This site is a "must-visit" for anyone beginning to implement Common Core Standards in their classroom.

tag(s): commoncore (92), teaching strategies (24)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this site for use in implementing and understand Common Core Standards. Share this site with other teachers and administrators in your building.

The Membean Word Map displays all the synonyms and closely related words for any word you enter. Clicking on a synonym for the word will bring up a word map for that synonym, but your original search word will remain in the box at the top. What a fantastic way to look up a word that is unfamiliar to you or find alternatives. See words via relationships instead of in isolation.

tag(s): dictionaries (56), vocabulary development (126)

In the Classroom

Project this word map page using your interactive whiteboard and projector, and type in a word. Show students how easy it is to examine the different synonyms and their meanings used to help them understand the original word. What an easy way show students the different nuances and connotations of the meanings, and that not all synonyms fit in a specific sentence. You may want to post this page on your website or wiki and bookmark it on the classroom computers for parent and student use.

Create artwork and posters about the ocean creatures using a tool such as Web Poster Wizard (reviewed here). Have students move as the creature would move, and have ocean inspired snacks and lunches. For extra counting or color practice, have students place a certain number or color of creatures at an interactive whiteboard "center."

Pop!Tech provides scientific discovery and social innovation information. Are you ready to challenge your paradigm? Step back and feel your brain spin into action while you think about the goals and objectives of this "community of innovators, working together to expand the edge of change." Thought-provoking videos (about 20 minutes long) address change from many angles.

tag(s): creativity (109), scientists (68)

In the Classroom

Want your students to think differently about science, technology, and collaborating? The projects and initiatives on this site did not happen in seclusion. Have students read an article and break it down to see how all three play equally important parts in creating change. Challenge students to work together to design or create something new for their school or community. This would be great in science classes, social studies classes, potentially even art or family and consumer science class. Expertise can come from many different disciplines. How many times have you told a student that they need to be prepared for jobs that may not yet exist? Emphasize this point by having them read different articles from this website. These innovations were certainly not around when today's parents were graduating. >br>
As an intro to upper level science courses or a lead-in to a gifted enrichment project, have students choose one video and explore the various scientific advances now in the preliminary stages that may lead to related changes. Challenge them to discover what future careers might draw on such change and to present the ideas as a "Window into Change" presentation using any medium they prefer (video, multimedia, music, poetry or ??).

Find useful information about the New York State Math 8 Test for teachers, parents and students; however, content is applicable to many states. Each key concept has activities and resources developed for each grade 5-8 and divided into lessons, practice, interactive, teacher resource, and literature connection. The index for each level is an excellent starting point for exploration.

If you need a resource for countdown timers, Promethean flipcharts, or phonics videos you may find what you need at this "extras" site from Crickweb. These are resources that don't fit neatly into their useful grade level categories, so are in this "other" spot on the site. Included are several Promethean flipcharts in zip format for easy download. Topics include function machines, weigh ins, and a number Venn diagram. Timers are for use on any PC or whiteboard and include countdown clocks in several formats such as a clock, timer, or "bomb."

tag(s): iwb (31), phonics (75), preK (279), time (144)

In the Classroom

Download and save the timers for use during student work time. Set a timer on your interactive whiteboard for students to see time remaining. Promethean users can download and save flip charts for classroom use.

Nano has become a buzz word in our language, but what does it really mean? Find out by looking at this site from Stanford University. Do you have billions of things to do, and no time for things that are as small as a billionth of a meter? You need to make time to learn about this tiny scale that packs a mighty little punch today in science, technology, and even in our global economy. Make some time for this teeny tiny stuff because it's big, very big! This website provides a set of thorough, hands-on lesson plans that are excellent for magnifying this microscopic concept.

tag(s): inventors and inventions (101), measurement (159), microscopes (13)

In the Classroom

Are you struggling to wrap young minds around the tiny world of nanoscale? Lessons are appropriate for grades two to twelve, but could be adapted if you are teaching middle level students who have never been introduced to the world of nanotechnology. As an introduction for students who have never thought about nano, talk about how the use of this technology created better underwear that help prevent odor and decrease sweating. This is sure to start an interesting conversation. Just make sure that you set boundaries before you begin the discussion. See what other lines of clothing students could "create" with nanotechnology. Have them share their "inventions" on a class wiki or in a multimedia presentation using one of the many TeachersFirst Edge tools reviewed here.

Find free, copyright-safe pictures of places, people, animals, and more. Ookaboo is a resource containing over a million images. All images are in public domain or under creative commons, making them free and available for anyone to use (with credit). As the site explains, pictures are free to use within the law, and Ookaboo offers an excellent description on the help page about how legally to use the pictures. Search for images using the search box or by using links to countries, people, or technological artifacts. Download easily with the download button. One goal of Ookaboo is to include images suitable in an educational setting; however, as with any other image site, there is a possibility of inappropriate content.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): images (265), news (261), photography (160)

In the Classroom

Include a link to this site for students when preparing for presentations. Look for photos of any recent news event, even events obscure enough not to be included in American newspapers. Share an image or gallery of images on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) in a world language class. Discuss them in the language the students are learning. Link to certain galleries from your class web page or student presentations to show examples of concepts and life in other places. Share this site on your class web page for students to access easily during research projects. Use the photos as writing prompts in current events or writing classes. Learn about the culture and news in far off places. Create a visual current events "quiz" by displaying a gallery of images and asking students to explain the background of the story. Speech or ESL/ELL teachers can also share images to prompt students to talk about or describe them. Let the students select the image they wish to discuss!
