This site offers practice in building fluency with basic math facts. Registration is required; however, it is free. You simply create a list of students in your classroom and each student can work at their own progress. Progress reports are provided, and there is also a printable that can be sent home with information for students to practice at home. The goal within all activities is for students to provide answers within 3 seconds. If a problem isn't answered within 10 seconds the answer will appear for the student to type in. If it is answered within 3-10 seconds the student will receive a smiley face. If it is answered correctly within 3 seconds the student receives a check mark within that box. The classroom portion is also set up to be used on shared computers within the classroom. The first student chooses their name, inputs their pin number and completes the activity then the next name on the list appears for the following student to work at the computer. There is an option to skip over students who are absent or busy. Upon completion, a report will be prepared for the teacher.

With both academic and just-for-fun features, the site fills the need students have after Highlights Magazine and other similar publications get too old. Students are using their reading skills as they try to solve riddles, tell jokes, and practice tongue-twisters.

Get rid of the last minute rush and make planning research projects easier with this online calculator and planner. Simply put in some basic information such as your name, class, email, and type of project. Then the calculator maps out a time-lime for completing the project on time. You can choose from several types of projects such as essay, slide presentation, or video. The last step is putting in information including the starting and due dates. A step by step process is revealed with dates to finish each portion of the project beginning with questions to answer before beginning, gathering information, drawing conclusions, communicating information, and evaluation. Each of these portions contains links with further information and probes to keep the project moving along. This entire page can then be emailed to you for future use or the choice can be made to receive an email each step along the way.

tag(s): calculators (41), calendars (46), organizational skills (129), timelines (64)

In the Classroom

Share this site with students to use as a planning guide for research projects. Create one timeline for the entire class to use as a planning benchmark or create timelines for each student. ESL/ELL and Special Education teachers may find this to be a useful tool to help students with planning and preparing for long-term projects. Provide this link for students to access both in and out of the classroom while planning projects.

This wiki is a treasure trove of resources for teachers to use when using the Differentiated Instruction model of instruction. The site is most easily navigated by choosing topics from the links on the left side of the page. Topics include background information, planning and managing, and professional development tools. After choosing a topic, there is a list of links: some are to videos, others are to Word or PDF documents that can be downloaded for immediate use. One particularly rich resource on the wiki is the section titled Questioning & Thinking Skills. Located here are many resources such as how to write great questions, a Blooms Taxonomy interactive quiz, podcasts about Blooms Taxonomy, an Essential Questions PowerPoint, and much more. This section is worth a visit just to review the resources. Another well-developed portion of the wiki is the Pre-Assessment link. Here you will find many documents to use for pre-assessment of knowledge as well as activating prior knowledge resources.

Flashcard Maker, as the title implies, is an online tool to create flashcards. This site also has a healthy bank of prefabricated flashcards that could easily save time in meeting your needs. The link to "Explore Flashcards" allows you to search for prefabricated cards sorted by subject and topic. You can save as sets of cards with tags and share with friends. You can add images to cards, making them not only more interesting to use, but also more versatile since you can identify and learn more visual things than standard flashcards. You can change the flashcard theme, font size, and viewing order.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): flash cards (47), test prep (96)

In the Classroom

Create flashcards for your classes using Flashcard Maker-- or have them make their own. Try using them as a introduction to a concept, then again in the practice of the concept, and again as a final review. It is a nice three for one creation deal! This would be great for teaching Latin prefixes and suffixes of words to students, use in science terms, or for standardized test preparation. Try having students create flashcards and share with each other to quiz themselves within their own groups. Teach students in higher grades how to create flash cards with multiple blanks to challenge their brain to remember more pieces of the puzzle. Show them how to carefully read through their classroom notes and underline the most important word or words in a sentence. Then have them leave out the most important words for their flashcards. Learning support teachers might want to have small groups create cards together to review together before tests. Have students create flashcard sets to "test" classmates on what they "teach" in oral reports.

This great site draws a picture of whatever is typed into the "Draw It" box. A baseball-capped man (viewed in a video) sitting behind a desk with many pictures tacked on the wall behind him takes up his drawing pad and pen and creates the drawing in front of you! The site does take a few seconds to load and to draw, so it is not an instant picture, but the picture appears within 6 seconds. The supporting dictionary does seem to be somewhat limited, so the picture you get may not always be what you are expecting! And if students types in something inappropriate, they get a "naughty list' note from the man.

tag(s): dictionaries (57), drawing (80), vocabulary (325)

In the Classroom

This is a great site for ESL, SPED, and language teachers who can not seem to communicate exactly what a certain object is. Share the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. For students who do not know what a hedgehog or okapi is, this is a simple way to display a picture. Have students compete to draw their vocabulary words with the onscreen man, and decide whose pictures are best!

This interactive weather map of the U.S., Mexico and Canada allows you to mouse over any location to see current conditions including temperature, wind chill, visibility, dew point, etc. Most "dots" are local airports. With a click on the desired station, a history of the current weather conditions for the last few days pops up, showing the information in a linear table. In addition, there are graphs above the table of temperature/dewpoint and relative humidity. Under other tabs on this page are aerial weather information observations, forecasts, and other more technical weather information. This is a great source for seeing a variety of graphs and their practical applications.

"I decided to put together Mathstory.com to keep students smiling and engaged as they mastered mathematical concepts," is Mr. R's explanation for this site that includes many resources for elementary teachers along with a few lessons for Jr High and High School teachers. Be sure to check out the Math Videos page which includes 20 homemade videos created for learning strategies for counting and multiplying (the page may be slow to load because of the number of videos included). The Math Story link currently leads you to the online book, Fourth Grade and the Evil Wizard of Math. Each chapter contains math problems. There are many math lessons included for all grade levels. Don't miss the interesting math poems to learn geometric shapes. There is A LOT here to explore!
This site includes advertising.

Need kid-friendly online news? This safe site, written for kids, by kids, offers news from a younger point-of-view. You can create a class page where you can load a variety of articles, add a book list, a calendar, favorite sites list, add lesson plan instructions, monitor student comments, and more. DOGOnews is kid friendly, colorful, and flexible. After all, DOGO means young or small in Swahili. You can select articles from a number of categories (Social Studies, Science, World, Current Events, etc.). There is an integrated dictionary for challenging words and maps for geographical context. Some of the articles include short video clips. Students may leave brief comments about each article (no login required). Also, typing the word "video" in the search box will bring up the Video of the Week for the past several weeks. The videos reside on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube. In addition, find a Book and Movie section with a brief summary for the book or movie, and comments. You don't have to join to read the articles, but you do need to join to create a class page. There are many benefits to creating a class page, and it's all free! Don't want to create a class page? You can also embed articles on your current web page.

In the Classroom

Non-fiction reading and background knowledge have found a new emphasis with The Common Core State Standards. It is more important now than ever to help connect students with quality, non-fiction reading and viewing material. Find great news resources and videos of the week to create assignments for your class at DOGOnews. You may want to create a class page and load several news articles. Have students choose from the articles, and email it to themselves. Have students print out the article and complete a "close reading" of the article by annotating it. Then have students who chose the same article get together in groups to discuss their reactions about the article, create a summary together, and create four or five open-ended questions about the article. Lastly, create groups of four, with each student having a different article, and have them present their article to the others in the group and ask them their open-ended questions to trigger a discussion. Create a class magazine from the articles. Or better yet, have students create a multimedia presentation using UtellStory, reviewed here. This site allows users to narrate a picture. Challenge students to find a photo (legally permitted to be reproduced), and then narrate the photo as if it is a news report. Strengthen reading comprehension by having an 'article du jour' on your interactive whiteboard or projector as students arrive. Link this site on your homepage.
