This site offers a vast amount of resources for elementary math teachers. Activities are described within the site and also available for PDF download. The site was originally intended as a digital storage place for the creator's resources used in consulting work and evolved into a place to share math resources with other teachers. Included topics are numbers, geometry, and measurement/data. After choosing a topic, activities are divided by grade level. Be sure to look at other grade levels for activities that can be modified for your teaching situation. Also available on the site is extensive information about Math Journals (warning - their math journals are for sale on the site; however, information to make and use your own is free). Other topics include math games, centers, projects, mental math, and resources - including some for interactive whiteboards.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): data (150), geometric shapes (171), journals (21), measurement (164), mental math (29), rhymes (32)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource to supplement current classroom activities. If you are just implementing math journals, this site is a wonderful resource for ideas and implementation. Print out game directions for use at centers or in folders. Share this site on your class webpage for students to access both in and out of the class for extra practice and/or enrichment.

Comments

This site has proved an invaluable resource for teachers at my school. Lots of great resources for Math Centers/small group work and the journal tasks for K-5 are all really good! Highly recommend it to any teachers and/or math coaches trying to get their head around the Common Core Standards. Jane, , Grades: 0 - 5

Help Carlos shop for his parrot, Paco, with this interactive all about money. You choose the wallet with the correct amount of money to purchase items.

If correct, Paco places the item into his cage, a wrong response prompts you to try again.

tag(s): measurement (164), money (182)

In the Classroom

Choose this site for a math computer center to allow students to practice money counting skills. Use on the interactive whiteboard or projector while students draw and write the correct answers at their seats.

Find great websites and activities for use with an interactive whiteboard, projector, or on individual computers at this well organized site. Find great resources for Length, Time, Money, Perimeter/Area, Temperature, Weight, Volume/Surface Area, or Angles. Although TeachersFirst does not usually review "hotlists" of links, this one is extremely useful to share as is. This collection of resources pulls from across the web to organize interactive math skills practice into topics the way teachers and curriculum specialists "see" them, saving you load of time in finding just the right math practice activities.

tag(s): angles (88), area (72), measurement (164), money (182), perimeter (32), temperature (31), time (139), volume (48)

In the Classroom

Use any of the great resources interactively in the classroom. For example, click on "Weight" and then "Reading Scales" to access a great site. Choose a different scale to use on the interactive whiteboard (or students can use on a single computer.) Choose the measurement, and then "Generate." Practice reading the scale using the whiteboard as a class or in groups. Require students working individually to use a screen capture (print screen in PC or Apple-shift-4 in Mac) to capture an image of the screen. Use Paint or another lettering program to write their scale readings on their picture. Print or present to the class. Take a few minutes to check out this site and find some great resources for units and lessons in your classroom. Share this link on your class website.

Have cooperative learning groups create online books using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here. Provide this link on your class website for families to explore together.

All Aboard.... the Dinosaur Train! This website takes two topics that kids love (dinosaurs and trains) and turns the experience into a wonderful lesson in language arts, science, social studies, and more. Climb aboard the train and find lesson plans, games (which ARE educational), a field guide (introducing the various dinosaurs), a print option for printable pages of dinosaurs, and a video button to view clips of this educational show. There is also a link for parents and teachers (with lesson plans, class activities, overview of the show, and more).

NOTE: the popularity of this site can make it slow to load, especially at peak times. Open it on the classroom computer before the lesson so it is in the "cache," and avoid heavy traffic times such as 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern time when schools are online across the U.S.

tag(s): counting (111), dinosaurs (54), measurement (164), paleontology (40), preK (292)

In the Classroom

If you are teaching about dinosaurs, herbivores, carnivores, measurements, and many other topics, share this site on your interactive whiteboard. Share parts of the video clips and then discuss the science concepts discussed. Have students use the "Field Guides" to learn more about specific dinosaurs. Have cooperative learning groups create multimedia presentations about the dinosaurs they study. How about creating a class DinoWiki (dinosaur wiki). Not comfortable with wikis? Have no wiki worries - check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through. Be sure to list this site on your class website for all of your dinosaur loving students to view at home!

NOTE: Open this site on the classroom computer before the lesson so it is in the "cache," and avoid heavy traffic times such as 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern time when schools are online across the U.S.
