Bring learning to life with fun music from Mr. A, Mr. C, and Mr. D's blog from the UK! Song topics include literacy, math ("maths" in the UK), and science. Each entry contains two mp3 versions of a song: one with lyrics and one without. In addition, lyrics are posted along with links to download lyrics and music. See additional videos that demonstrate a similar form of the same type of music at the link "Now Listen to How Its Really Done!" A few of the terms used are distinctly British (such as pounds for money), but most of the songs are universal for any English-speaking classroom. By the way, KS2 is about the same as grades 2-5 in the U.S., but curriculum topics vary.

tag(s): forces (44), geometric shapes (171), literacy (107), matter (59), mean (25), median (22), mode (15), plants (156), punctuation (43), recycling (57), sounds (70), synonyms (36), vocabulary (325)

In the Classroom

Songs on this site would be great to use to introduce and review concepts addressed in the songs: onomatopoeia, prime numbers, or plants. Share songs with students and challenge them to write their own songs. Share them using a tool such as SchoolTube reviewed here. Create a link on your class website for students to access from home.

Discover a huge collection of interactive illustrations to help explain complex concepts in science, technology, art, math, and a range of other topics. The activities also give you the power to create interactive visualizations. There are thousands of Mathematica Demonstrations. A demonstration is a Mathematica notebook that takes advantage of Mathematica's manipulate command. Use the manipulate command to create sliders or buttons or check boxes to change the values of parameters in the displays in the demonstration. The result is you control the animation. View demonstrations on topics ranging from odd and even numbers to odd and even functions, fractions to fractals, and from linear functions to linear algebra and linear programming. In addition to mathematical topics, there are demonstrations illustrating the time in different cities around the world, global demographic information, the solar system, and art and music concepts. You need to download the Wolfram CDF player to use and interact with the demonstrations.

tag(s): addition (225), animals (292), architecture (84), computers (99), division (160), fractions (228), geometric shapes (171), gravity (48), logic (236), maps (292), money (182), multiples (35), multiplication (211), plants (156), psychology (66), statistics (126), subtraction (185), weather (198)

In the Classroom

Explain how to use the Demonstrations on your interactive whiteboard (or projector). Allow students to explore on their own classroom computers. (Remember to download the CDF player onto each computer or request it in advance from your tech department.) Challenge students to create a talking avatar using a photo or other image (legally permitted for reproduction). Use avatars to explain activities performed using a Demonstration. Use a site such as Blabberize (reviewed here). The beauty of the demonstrations is that it allows students to manipulate and "play" to view the impact of changes made, allowing many opportunities for classroom discussion. Ask students to predict the impact of changes using the manipulate command; then discuss the actual impact as it occurs.

The Mathematics Visions Project contains lessons and activities integrated into Common Core Standards for use with secondary students. Two versions are available: Secondary One and Secondary One Honors. Both include an edition for students and teachers. It is highly recommended that you read the introduction to the materials to understand the concept behind the lessons before beginning use. Each module is in PDF format for easy printing. It is not necessary to print the entire module. Choose a lesson and just print those pages. Following each lesson is a homework assignment. The Ready, Set, Go! homework assignments correlate to the daily classroom experience and are organized into three parts: Ready to prepare to learn new material, Set for practicing developing skills (the new mathematical skills become more "set" or fluent), Go! to help students remember the skills and procedures learned previously. Follow links provided for additional support with concepts in the homework material. Assessments for each module provide feedback through multiple choice, constructed response, and short answer questions.

tag(s): equations (149), inequalities (25), sequences (16), sequencing (30)

In the Classroom

Use activities, lessons, and homework available here to supplement current classroom materials. Share the short parent section with parents to explain the philosophy behind activities. Use these lessons to help integrate Common Core Standards into your classroom.

This wonderful resource demonstrates angle measurements in triangles. Click a corner and drag it around the screen to change the measurement and view changes to other angles. Choose from several different types of triangles to begin. Each change is shown on the equation which always displays a sum of 180 degrees as each of the angle measurements change. Learn about right triangles, obtuse triangles, scalene triangles, and more!

tag(s): angles (88), geometric shapes (171)

In the Classroom

Use this site on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) to demonstrate different kinds of triangles and angle measurements. Change triangle dimensions and ask students to define the category they fall into. Have volunteers come up to the whiteboard and change the measurements of a triangle, while the rest of the class guesses what type of triangle is now created. Create a work station using this site and allow students to explore the different measurements on their own.

Find several ready to go, Common Core aligned, Math and English/Language Arts projects free for your use. Developed by the Buck Institute for Education, who are THE experts for project based learning, the PBLU projects are designed to save you time in the project based learning process. However, each project is flexible enough to customize it to your needs. Along with these projects, also find several two-week online classes that can result in your becoming PBL certified. The classes are free, but not required to use the projects with your students. If none of the projects they have now are appealing, sign up for their newsletter to stay updated about new project development. You can even suggest a project for them to create through the Community Wish List.

tag(s): problem solving (286)

In the Classroom

There are a variety of projects presented at different grade levels. Don't hesitate to look at one that seems beyond or below your grade level. They are easily adaptable. For instance, the one by Biz World created for third through fifth grade students to experience entrepreneurship can easily be adapted to a product that high school students might be interested in such as earrings, designing a class ring, or a video explaining how to conquer levels in a video game.

The Mathematics Assessment Project aims to bring life to the Common Core Standards by offering assessments for use in middle school and high school classrooms. Assessments are both summative tests or tasks and classroom performance based. Classroom research and feedback led to the development of all tasks. Choose from complete lessons including Common Core standards goals, print-outs as needed, and directions. Also included are tasks separated by middle school or high school level and high school tests for college readiness. There is an excellent professional development portion on the site for incorporating activity based learning in classrooms along with videos, session guides, and handouts. Download modules as needed for offline use. Find a step by step overview of how to use the site at the instructions tab at the top of each page.

tag(s): angles (88), area (72), assessment (109), charts and graphs (192), decimals (125), equations (149), estimation (47), measurement (164), negative numbers (21), percent (80), pythagorean theorem (32)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this site as a resource for classroom activities and assessments relating to Common Core standards.
