Professor Garfield offers many entertaining activities to promote literacy and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Art) education, with America's favorite cat featured as the resident "edu-cat-or." Begin by choosing from options such as Explore, Play, Create, Read, or Steamed to view offerings. In addition to games and activities for kids, Professor Garfield contains a large teacher resource area. Choose the Instructional Materials link in this area to find content categorized by grade, standards, and specific content topic. 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 KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): careers (129), comics and cartoons (74), creative writing (167), drawing (77), mental health (26), phonics (75), reading comprehension (114), reading strategies (43), sight words (37), STEM (123), vocabulary (323)

In the Classroom

Create a link on classroom computers for students to explore and play games on their own. The site is a little difficult to navigate; you may want to introduce it on your interactive whiteboard and demonstrate how to find specific activities and content. Be sure to share a link to Professor Garfield on your class website for student use at home. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram, reviewed here, to compare two different stories read on the Professor Garfield site.

Use Edulastic to monitor your teaching of Common Core Standards as well as focusing on student proficiency of content. Since student registration is via email, for young students consider using a "class set" of Gmail subaccounts, explained here; this tells how to configure Gmail subaccounts to use for any online membership service.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional development session from August 2016, opens in Adobe Connect. No student wants to fail a quiz. Use Google Forms conditional branching to make every student successful on your next quiz. We all know that learners need feedback. To maximize the benefit from that feedback, it should be given immediately -- ideally after each question. Google forms can make that happen. Conditional branching is the ability to send a user to a different question (or a different page of questions) based on the answer the user supplied to a previous question. Wow, that makes your forms so much more functional. It is similar to the old 'choose your own adventure' books we knew and loved as children. Join us and take your Google Form to the next level with branching! As a result of this session and through individual follow-up, teachers will: 1. Create a Google Form; 2. Use branching to facilitate instant remediation and feedback; and 3. Discuss tips and tricks for the management of forms. Remember, it is OK2Ask''® questions at any time! This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
