Keep track of the noise level in your classroom using the calmCounter "Calmness Counter." This colorful tool is simple to set up and use. Hook up a microphone and watch the calm counter respond to the noise level in your classroom. This is a concrete way to quantify noise level needed for goal setting and behavior (sound) management. Even the young can understand this tool's "thermometer."

tag(s): classroom management (65), music theory (23)

#### In the Classroom

Display calmCounter on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) during your troublesome, noisy times: centers, indoor recess, or group work. If you have an autistic or noise sensitive student, calmCounter can help your class become more aware of their noise levels. In music class, use to aid students in understanding dynamics in written music such as pianissimo, mezzo forte, and forte. During your science unit on sound, use calmCounter to show a rudimentary measurement of different types of sound.

#### In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this site for finding literature to match to math content throughout the school year. You may want to list this link on your class website for parents to use to find literature to read to their younger student. Challenge your secondary students to read one of the books... for math class! For further math-related, leveled book suggestions for student independent reading, try TeachersFirst's CurriConnects list, Math in Use.

iPracticeMath is a great site for teaching, reinforcing and reviewing math skills for all grade levels. The site is intended for home use, with parents registering to track their child's progress, but registration is not required to access activities. Begin by choosing from math practice, learning, or worksheets. From there choose a grade level and content. In addition to the usual math topics, there is Consumer Math. Answer multiple choice questions that provide immediate feedback including correct responses for incorrect answers. Optional parent account creation provides reports including individual progress, strengths and weaknesses, and comparisons to students of similar age.

tag(s): addition (209), decimals (114), division (141), equations (126), fractions (210), functions (59), integers (41), measurement (137), multiples (32), multiplication (193), number sense (79), numbers (177), operations (96), order of operations (30), polynomials (28), pythagorean theorem (26), statistics (106), subtraction (173), time (126)

#### In the Classroom

Although this site only reinforces basic math concepts through multiple choice responses and short answers, it is one worthy of adding to classroom computers and definitely worth sharing with parents. Differentiate content based on individual student's needs. If you wish, encourage parents to create individual student accounts to track progress and share with you throughout the school year. Have them email reports or print them out and send to school with younger ones. If you and the parent wish to "share" a login, you could work together to support struggling students. Learning support teachers and ESL/ELL teachers will find this simple tool a great asset in the classroom.

Have students send you on a vacation and include calculations for the currency converter, fuel cost calculator, sales tax for souvenirs, and more! This is a great site to support many experiments in science. Calculate acceleration, velocity, and time, or use the mathematics category to complete problems. Use this tool in social studies class for quickly calculating years or months from important timelines or when figuring out geographical distances. In English or L.A. classes, quickly figure out the life span of authors or how long ago a story took place. In health or science classes, use the BMI calculator or get other accurate measurements. Visit Calkoo and select a calculator to meet your needs! Include this site on your class web page for students and parents to access as a reference. The various languages make this tool very useful for ESL/ELL students.

Storytelling with Maps takes learning in a new direction. Interactive maps tell a story through videos, images, audio, and links. Learn more about the topics in text that accompanies each map. A timeline of "dots" allows you to move through the story step by step. A satellite view is available on some maps, and legends give you important information to read the map accurately. A wide variety of topics are available to inform and educate. Use the search bar to find a map to meet your needs. Travel to the most visited National Parks or explore an interactive map of the three days and decisive moments of the battle of Gettysburg. It is important to pay as much attention to the text pop-ups as the cartography and other aspects of the map. New stories are added every 2 weeks. so come back often! This review was for the free area of the site that allows you to view the map stories. There are extensive directions on how to create your own maps, but these suggest purchase of maps, etc. from ArcGIS, an affiliate of Esri. Some of the map storytelling ideas could be used with other free mapping tools, however.

#### In the Classroom

The activities on this site are perfect for use on interactive whiteboards or classroom computers. Have students try activities to increase fact fluency as well as fluency with number patterns. Print and use worksheets from this site for homework, math centers, or review of current content. It would be simple to differentiate for your gifted students or learning support students. For example, there are specific activities to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. Choose the one that each particular student needs to practice the most. If students are beyond basic operations, try the Cricket Challenge or Magic Square Investigation (both appear more challenging than the basic operations activity). Note: American children can learn about cricket, too!
