This site offers several interactives for practicing basic math facts. Most offer choice of practice in addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication in timed and non-timed formats. One feature of this site offers teachers the opportunity to create their own classroom to personalize the site for students. After registering, teachers can add activities and features to their class page to make it easy for students to access games and activities chosen for them. Registration does require an email address. Teachers can also create personalized activities using their own math problems. This site does include banner ads. At the time of this review they were non-distracting.

tag(s): addition (223), counting (109), division (159), multiplication (210), subtraction (184), vision (77)

In the Classroom

Share the site with your classroom on your interactive whiteboard or projector to demonstrate how to use the site, then create a link on classroom or computer lab computers for students to use during center time. Create your own class site to personalize games you want students to play. Use this site to differentiate instruction for your struggling and highly capable students. Rather than using your personal email account, create a FREE gmail account to use for online registrations. Share this site with parents through your classroom newsletter or website for practice at home.

This site offers practice with math and challenging problems for all grade levels. If you teach math to grades 1-12, this site is a MUST SEE. It contains a graduated set of over 1,000 problems starting from very easy and working up to very difficult levels. Each problem contains a short description and an image to help visualize the problem. Problems adapt to the skill of the person answering problems, grade levels cannot be increased until 5 correct problems in a row have been solved. The tests concentrate on understanding, spatial reasoning, and problem solving rather than math rules and theorems.

tag(s): decimals (124), fractions (225), logic (236), operations (124), order of operations (40), test prep (96)

In the Classroom

Share this site on your classroom newsletter or blog for students to access at home. Introduce the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector then create a link on classroom computers. Challenge students to progress through different grade levels and share problems with the class.

This collection has interactive games and quizzes and downloadable, printable PDF activity sheets for science, math, history, and just about any subject area. There are even fun and nutritious recipes that are easy to make and serve as great "following directions" projects. If you are looking for some great ideas and are tired of reinventing the wheel, you will find this web site to have plenty to choose from.

tag(s): quiz (88), quizzes (102)

In the Classroom

Select from the many attractive, motivating activities that fit your curriculum, and make some of them available on your web page for students to access when in the computer lab. Having a meaningful collection of online activities for students to engage in when finished with their work is a great classroom management tool, especially when using a set of classroom computers. The activities are suitable for individual work and many of them lend themselves to group or whole class assignments that you can project on your whiteboard.

Wedoist is an easy, free project manager. Do you have groups working on projects? Do they need to plan out their work and who will do what? Your students need to know about time management skills. Wedoist will help you teach them. At Wedoist you'll find a simple, free task manager. It has a built in calendar and you can create sub-projects and sub-tasks easily. The free account is for groups of three or less. Be aware: this site is still operating, however support staff is no longer available.

tag(s): classroom management (157), organizational skills (129), time (139)

In the Classroom

When older students sign up for an account, be sure to tell them to use their code or acronym instead of their real name. For younger students you can create an account and as many groups as you need. Invite students to the group they will be working with. Older students can sign up for the program and create their own project and invite their group members. Have the students agree on tasks and who will complete them and post it on Wedoist. Use this site to help students organize for individual or collaborative research projects. Take the "time" to actually teach about time management skills, one of the most sought-after skills listed by today's employers.

GoogleTreks allows teachers and students to synthesize information in one easy-to-use Google Map that places text, pictures, audio files, video files, and much more in one central location. This site offers possibilities for exploration in all subject areas for all grades. The site is organized by both subject and grade-level tasks. Currently there are only a few examples to follow; however, they offer a variety of material and ideas for creating your own Google Trek or for students to create their own. After choosing a pre-made GoogleTrek, you are directed to a Google Map with different tasks and links.

There is an excellent tutorial for creating your own GoogleTrek that includes step-by-step directions with pictures. After creating a GoogleTrek, it can be posted to the site for others to use. Also included is a rubric that can be downloaded in pdf form. More information on Google Maps can be found at the TeachersFirst review. You can also view the maps in Google Earth. To learn more about Google Earth, see the TeachersFirst review (here).

tag(s): maps (292)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore independently or in small groups. Older students can create their own GoogleTrek after viewing examples for any subject. To post the GoogleTrek, you must email the creator (directions are explicitly explained on the "Posting Your Own GoogleTrek" link. Have students create GoogleTrek's about Christmas Around the World, routes of explorers, famous landmarks, and important inventions. While presenting a GoogleTrek, have students identify points displayed on paper maps located at their seats.

Harcourt School's website offers many different activities for practicing Math skills taught in their 3rd grade program; however, the activities are free and useful for everyone, no matter what text they use. Activities are divided by math strands - number sense, algebra and functions, measurement and geometry, and statistics, data analysis and probability. Most activities have an interactive element and printable recording sheet that can be used by students. Students can input their own figures which makes the activities less repetitive and more interesting.

tag(s): data (158), multiplication (210), probability (137), time (139)

In the Classroom

Make a shortcut to this site on classroom computers and use it as a center. Use this site to differentiate for students of all levels. Have students complete the recording sheet with an activity to use as an assessment or accountability piece. Include a link to the site on your classroom website or blog for students to practice at home.

Text Mechanic is a collection of free, online, browser-based, text manipulation tools. All tools are simple to use. Basically, click on the tool of your choice, like the Count Characters, Words, and Lines or Remove Lines of Text Containing, copy and paste or type your text into the box, and submit. Results are instantaneous. There is even a tool to change and choose the color of the background, text and border of your web page. The sight is plain vanilla, but that is the beauty of it; there's nothing to hunt for - what you see is what you get.

tag(s): editing (71), grammar (210), spelling (166)

In the Classroom

How many times have your students used the same word over and over again, accidently typed an entire response in all CAPS, or spent more time counting how many words they used than they did writing their essay? Demonstrate some of these text manipulation tools on your projector or interactive whiteboard and make the link readily available from your web page or class wiki and have students bookmark it in their favorites. They will love having these helpful tools when completing assignments on the computer. Although some of them are customized on word processing programs, they are often "hidden" or "well-kept secrets." The Text Mechanic takes the time and guesswork out of manipulating text.

Some of the tools are just plain fun to experiment with and make good time fillers when your students are using the computer lab or a class set of netbooks and some of them finish the assignment before others. For elementary grades, use some of the tools to scramble the letters on weekly spelling words or to generate scrambled sentences.

How much money can you make growing and harvesting exotic flowers? In order to be a professional grower, you need to order decimals, convert fractions to percentages and decimals, and more. The better you are at these skills, the stronger and more interesting flowers will develop. This activity doesn't require a login; however, teachers can create an account and add student information so that scores can be saved. Be sure to check out the Achievements section which lists math skills practiced at each level.

tag(s): decimals (124), fractions (225), percent (81)

In the Classroom

Use this site on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start your study of percentages, decimals or fractions. Use on the interactive whiteboard as a springboard for classroom discussion on conversions of decimals, fractions and percentages. Install as a center on classroom computers for student practice of skills. Share this link on your class website for students to use both in and out of the classroom.

This awarding winning website highlights contemporary artists for students. Every featured artist episode introduces various art forms, how life experiences influence artistic choices, and why artists create. Media on the site include painting, printmaking, installation, textiles, jewelry, sculpture, and ceramics. Typically, each artist profile contains videos of an interview, student lead critique, recorded workshop (classroom lesson), teacher response, artist at work in their studio, and fun interactive computer activities. There is also a comprehensive section for teachers that suggests lessons and extension ideas. Every activity outlines lesson objectives and connects to academic content areas. Artists also have an on-line gallery of their work. There are easy, interactive activities that allow students to create artwork reflective of a particular artist and their medium. Students can submit and share their creations to an online gallery.

tag(s): artists (78), design (95)

In the Classroom

The resources on this site are useful for ANY grade level. Each lesson lists how it connects to UK learning standards, which are not unlike those in the U.S. The workshops and videos integrate beautifully with a diverse range of curriculum topics such as: science, poetry, math, history, and much more. Connect a unit about plants and photosynthesis to the collaborative work by Loop.PH. Liven up the process of publishing a writer's workshop book with workshops modeled after bookmaker and illustrator Sarah Dyer or Jane Ray. Take a unit about birds of prey and examine how Sulky Best creates animations of their flight. View the workshop videos on laptops, interactive whiteboard, or a projector before beginning one of ArtisanCam's suggested lessons. These videos are an engaging way to give directions and provide wonderful overview of the activity. Each lesson includes clear systematic directions and suggests practical guidelines for teachers to follow. Share this link on the class website for enrichment or even a fun homework assignment. Teachers of gifted can find inspiration for many extension activities from this site.

Some of the activities ask the students to enter their name, age, and town before submitting them to their online gallery. Be sure not to include any identifiable information that outsiders could trace to an individual students. Consider asking students to leave these fields blank or assign initials and logical pseudonyms (Ex. MsGper2-12, MsGper2-13, etc.) for their user names. Of course, you will want check school policies and get written parent permission before submitting student work. Spell out both permissible use and consequences before you send students to this site.

Whether you are a lover of major league baseball or have a "soft spot" for overcoming the odds stacked against you and achieving a dream - the American dream, you will find videos and activities on this Web site that will surely capture your heart and the hearts and attention of the boys as well as the girls in your class.

Every year, people across the country pause on April 15 to celebrate the historic event that marks the anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in baseball in 1947. Use this educational program to bring the significance of Jackie Robinson's legacy to your classrooms. Although Breaking Barriers centers around an essay contest, you may choose to simply use the ideas to offer and assist your students in learning opportunities to teach them values that will enable them to face their own barriers and express themselves in written form. There are lessons, printables, book lists, and more that align with language arts, math, and social studies national standards.

tag(s): civil rights (121)

In the Classroom

Share the video of Jackie Robinson's daughter, Sharon Robinson, on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Listen to her personal story of her famous baseball player Dad's courage, determination, integrity, and persistence to break the color barrier on and off the playing field. Use an online tool like bubble.us reviewed here to engage students in whole class brainstorming of some of the real life barriers that students face today, and then lead into a journal writing activity for students to think about how to use Jackie Robinson's values to face and overcome barriers in their own lives. Whether you are celebrating the anniversary of Jackie Robinson Day, Black History month, a unit on courage and heroes, or introducing these concepts anytime during the year, the downloadable and whiteboard ready materials will increase the richness of your class discussions and broaden students' understanding of how to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others.

This site contains many visual explanations of Math topics including interactive practice activities. Each explanation begins with a definition of the topic (such as adding or subtracting fractions), then moves on to practicing the skill with the interactive pieces. Practice activities at the end of each topic are very visually appealing and will appeal to most students. One of the most useful portions of the site is the glossary which contains definitions of many Math terms along with examples of the terms in use.

tag(s): charts and graphs (199), fractions (225), integers (41), puzzles (204), statistics (126)

In the Classroom

This site would be useful for students to practice skills already learned; however, the explanations are not in-depth enough for beginning to learn concepts. Create a link on classroom computers or in the computer lab to use as practice. Use the glossary as a resource on your interactive whiteboard or projector when definitions are needed for math terms. Provide a link on your class website or blog to the glossary for students to access at home. Display the site on your interactive whiteboard, choose a subject such as adding/subtracting fractions, then click the link titled "topic" and choose the final item in the sequence - in this instance it is an activity called The Small Flood. These activities are perfect for whole-class practice in each subject.

Use this free service to create magazines from your Flickr account. Authorize MagCloud to access your flickr account to pull album pictures into a magazine. Registration on the site is required using an email address though verification is not required. Magazines can be printed for a fee or shared and viewed online for free. Click Browse after creating your account to view already created magazines. Search using search terms and by clicking on popular topics. Click Publish to begin creating your own magazine. Enter a title, subtitle, description, and category. Next, create an issue title, decide whether it will be public or private, and choose tags. Connect with your Flickr account, choose your Flickr album, and create the album easily. Setting your album to public allows others to view and buy (which can provide income as well.) Set Bind/price to choose bindings and price. Check the box if you wish free download to iPad.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): flickr (7), images (274), photography (159)

In the Classroom

Users must have a Flickr account and be able to navigate the authorizing of flickr as well as choosing an album to publish. Be sure to create titles in Flickr since these are imported as well.

Be sure to check district policy about creating student accounts and publishing student pictures and/or other material before using this tool. Note that by choosing Public in creating the magazine, the magazine is viewable online. Check your District policy. When browsing existing magazines, note that these may not be monitored and check for possible classroom-inappropriate material (though none was detected at the time of the review.) Consider creating a class Flickr account for students to upload class and group pictures.

Use a class Flickr account to keep track of day to day happenings in the classroom (especially for younger grades). Create albums of specific events such as field trips, service projects, hands-on activities, field experiences such as watershed studies, and more. Uploaded photos can easily be manipulated into an online album. Art and photography classes can use the magazine format as a portfolio. Create a magazine of photos that portray different history and social topics, set the scenes for novels or stories, or explain a specific science concept. Anywhere photos can be used to showcase achievement or explain a concept, this service would be a great resource. Special ed teachers, speech teachers, or world language teachers can collect images into "magazines" for students to practice/develop speech and vocabulary.

Create online sticky type bulletin boards to view from any online device using Lino. Click to try it first without even joining. The trial canvas has stickies explaining how to use Lino. Join and create your own canvases to share stickies, reminders, files, and more. Change sticky colors from the menu in the upper right hand corner or use the easy editing tools that appear when the sticky is selected. Use the icons at the bottom of each sticky note to "peel them off," share, edit, and more. Create a group from your Lino page to share and collaborate on canvases. You can also share canvases publicly so anyone with the URL can participate. This is a device-agnostic tool, available on the web but also available for free as both an Android and iOS app. Use it from any device or move between several devices and still access your work. App and web versions vary slightly.

tag(s): collages (18), creative fluency (8), creativity (121), DAT device agnostic tool (177), gamification (81), note taking (39)

In the Classroom

Use this tool easily in your Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) classroom since all students will be able to access it for free, no matter what device they have. Students can use this when researching alone or in groups, sharing files, videos, and pictures quickly from one computer to another. Have students write tasks for each member of the group on a sticky so that everyone has a responsibility. Show them how to copy/paste URLs for sources onto notes, too. Use Lino as your virtual word wall for vocabulary development. Use a Lino for students to submit and share questions or comments about assignments and tasks they are working on. Use it as a virtual graffiti wall for students to make connections between their world and curriculum content, such as "I wonder what the hall monitor would say finding Lady Macbeth washing her hands in the school restroom... and what Lady M would say back." (Of course, you will want to have a PG-13 policy for student comments!) Encourage students to maintain an idea collection lino for ideas and creative inspirations they may not have used yet but do not want to "lose." They can color code and organize ideas later or send the stickies to a new project board later. In writing or art classes, use lino as a virtual writer's journal or design a notebook to collect ideas, images, and even video clips. In science classes, encourage students to keep a lino board with (classroom appropriate) questions and "aside" thoughts about science concepts being studied and to use these ideas in later projects so their creative ideas are not 'lost" before project time. A lino board can also serve as a final online "display" for students to "show what they know" as the culmination of a research project. Add videos, images, and notes in a carefully arranged display not unlike an electronic bulletin board. This is also a great tool to help you stay "personally" organized. Use this site as a resource to share information with other teachers, parents, or students.

Students of all ages will find this site challenging and entertaining. The site includes thirteen different types of games to challenge and stretch the brain. These "Brain Games" are placed into the categories of picture logic and number logic.

tag(s): logic (236), puzzles (204), sudoku (17), symmetry (51)

In the Classroom

Use these logic puzzles to differentiate for your gifted learners. Project the activities on an interactive whiteboard or projector and use with the whole class as a brain break. Put the website on your class webpage for students to access from home. In addition use the site on your classroom computers and create a learning center during math time. When students finish a puzzle, have them print it and turn it in for a grade.

This handy website contains three egg timers that can be set to run individually or simultaneously. Simply click the arrows above or below the numbers to set the time, and click "start." All three timers have the same "ring tone."

tag(s): classroom management (157), experiments (73), preK (294)

In the Classroom

This site will be great to use with a projector or whiteboard to have a visual time reminder for students. Use the three timers to track science experiments. It is a great way to track intervals. Use the timers for clean up time, students have to be cleaned up by the time the third bell rings. Use for games or group work. Set all the timers to the same time, divide your class into three groups and give them a challenge problem. See who finishes in the fastest time. If you often use the same times, set the timers and add the page to your favorites. Now you have timers set up ready to go. Your students will probably have some creative ideas for using the timers, as well. Primary grade teachers introducing concepts of time and clocks can challenge students operate the timers themselves as a center, maybe timing how long it takes to tie a shoe or read a page, then reading the timer or writing the words for the time.

This collection of reviewed resources from TeachersFirst is selected to help teachers, parents, and students find, use, and create webquests. Teachers can find examples of webquests across the curriculum (and places to find MORE). Both students and teachers can find tools for creating their own webquests. We have even included some sample web resources as terrific seeds for webquest ideas.

In the Classroom

Mark this in your professional favorites for planning and finding webquests. The webquest format has been around for years and can be adapted many ways. Start from this collection and consider designing a webquest "Task" that uses a collaborative, web 2.0 tool such as those reviewed in the TeachersFirst Edge listings. Today's students will love the authentic, creative tasks and collaboration made possible by today's tools. TeachersFirst Edge reviews include ways to use the tools safely and within school policies, for a learning "win-win." You might even want to have student groups design their own webquests for classmates to try as a new twist on "jigsaw" learning.

tag(s): quiz (88), quizzes (102)

In the Classroom

Users must be able to determine the question and possible responses to generate the poll online. Remember to Publish your quiz to be able to share it.

This tool does not show the individual votes of students. Though this tool can be used by students, it may be best used by a teacher. Students using this tool, need an email to register.

Use polls created using Polldaddy on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start a new unit, asking questions about the material. Discuss in groups why those in class would choose a particular answer to uncover misconceptions. Use for Daily quiz questions to gain knowledge of student understanding and a means of formative assessment. Have student groups alternate to create a new poll for the next day. Place a poll on your teacher web page as a homework inspiration or to ask questions to increase parent involvement. Older students may want to include polls on their student blogs to increase read involvement or create polls to use at the start of project presentations. Use polls to generate data for math class (graphing), during elections or for critical thinking activities dealing with interpretation of statistics. Use "real" data to engage students on issues that matter to them.
