This creative site is all about sound! The first section presents the students with ten speakers. The students click on the speaker to hear a sound. Then the students find the vocabulary word for that sound from the word bank and drag the word to the correct corresponding space. The second activity "Sorting Instrument Sounds" challenges students to sort instruments into one of four categories (instruments we blow, instruments we bang, instruments we pluck or instruments we shake). The students can hear the instruments, by clicking on the picture of the instrument. Both activities provide a "check" button for assessment purposes. FLASH is required.

tag(s): listening (91), sound (101)

In the Classroom

This kid-friendly site will enhance any unit on sound or musical instruments.Be sure to turn up your volume! You may have to read the written labels aloud to very weak readers.

This unique (and challenging) website has four activities. The first challenge is to sort toys into groups. Students get to choose the criteria used to sort the items. When finished sorting, students need to explain why they grouped the toys the method chosen and then they can print. The second activity is to name materials. This page is tricky because many of the pictures are close-ups, and hard to distinguish. Once finished on this page, students may click "check" or "print". The third activity is a sorting activity to separate natural materials and man-made materials. The fourth activity is called; "Changing Materials" and student must determine which material is changing, how it is changed and why it is changed. Students click their mouse onto the text to answer the questions. Once finished, students may click "print" to share their work. This site requires FLASH.

In the Classroom

The second activity (labeling materials) would work best using an interactive whiteboard. The other activities could easily be adapted for group or independent work. See if your students notice U.S. vs UK spelling: labeling - labelling. The simple sorting activity at the start is a great thinking skill activity for primary students or for children with voacbulary deficits. They would love doing the drag-and-drop on as a center or on a whiteboard.

This site has three parts (students move onto the next part by clicking "next"). The first activity challenges students to "click and drag" words to their appropriate label spot on a picture. The materials include glass, brick, tile, paper, plastic, wool, wood and metal. The second activity is a table that asks students to "drop" the correct word or picture onto the corresponding spot on the table. The topics on the table include the material name, picture example and property. The final activity is a writing challenge. Students are presented with two pictures. The students must answer three questions about the pictures. To type on the page, students simply click their mouse to where they want to insert their answers. Once students are finished with this activity, they may click to print. This site requires FLASH.

In the Classroom

Try an interactive whiteboard for the first two activities. If you choose to make the final activity a class activity, project the questions onto a screen or whiteboard and challenge the students to answer the three questions independently. Used as a simple drag and drop, this site can help with vocabulary development for children with speech/language deficits.

This creative site challenges students to label a teddy bear scene. There is a main menu with two activity choices. The first activity provides students with words (i.e. yellow and teddy bear). The students must click and drag the words onto the correct position on the teddy bear picture. As the students move the words, the narrator speaks the words aloud. You can also play the Teddy Bear Picnic song (yellow buttons at left). The second activity, allows students to create their own words or annotations. There are print options with both activities. This site requires FLASH.

tag(s): spelling (168)

In the Classroom

Try it on an interactive whiteboard or as a center and challenge your students to create their own words for this teddy bear scene! This site is great for spelling practice and building creativity. Be sure you have your sound turned up (headphones if at a center). Note: the sound download takes awhile, and it appears that the site is not opening. Click to open it and be patient- perhaps load it in advance! Not recommended for dial-up.

Accompanying visuals include picture cards of the characters. The same lesson would be great for speech/language classes or pre-reading.
