This site matches the words you enter with photos on Flickr reviewed here. It uses search tags, titles, and descriptions of photos to match up with the words you type in the text box. You can get new pictures for the same words by clicking "Show Story" again. Use Stories in Flight: FlickrPoet to put photos with your favorite poem, quote, lyrics, or other piece of writing.
Note: Since Flickr houses photos contributed by the general public, some photos may be rated PG or depict something that may make student laugh. Nouns, active verbs, and vivid adjectives are most likely to return results that make sense.

tag(s): creative writing (166), creativity (109), digital storytelling (144), flickr (7), poetry (228)

In the Classroom

Stories in Flight: FlickrPoet would be perfect to use in April during National Poetry Month. Or introduce any poetry unit by showing Stories in Flight: FlickrPoet on your interactive whiteboard or projector. (Prescreen your word choices to be sure what you will get.) Have students work together on the IWB to create poems, or choose a favorite paragraph from their writing, then use this site to add images. Click on "Show Story" and compare the different outputs. For some interesting, high level discussion, ask students what makes something a "poem" vs. simply a collection of words. Ask them if they are satisfied with the images matched to their writing, and how they could make better matches for what they were thinking. Do they prefer imagining the metaphors or seeing them in concrete images, for example?

You may want to have a class Flickr account. Have students play with Stories in Flight: FlickrPoet using the "Show Story" several times, and then find their own pictures to go with their writing by using the search bar on Flickr. They can then publish their creations using a web site maker such as Weebly reviewed here. Offer this as one of several "visual poem" options during Poetry Month or poetry units.

This site is exactly what its title indicates, but it's more. It's not just an audio dictionary program. At How to Pronounce Words and Use Them you see a selection of videos with the word, and different forms of the word being used in context. These are actual news stories, lectures, etc. where people are using the word for real! When you first arrive, you see a sample video. You can also click on one of the sample words at the bottom to see everything offered when you search a word. There is information about why it's important to see facial expressions when learning to pronounce a new word and why it's important not to use the word in isolation when learning to pronounce it. Be aware: this site allows any word to be typed into the text box, including words inappropriate for the classroom. Be sure students know consequences for inappropriate use of this tool just as they do for writing words on the board or in their assignments..

tag(s): pronunciation (44), vocabulary (324), vocabulary development (126), word study (80)

In the Classroom

If YouTube is blocked at your school, use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube and to convert online videos such as the ones you find on YouTube into a portable format you can play at school.

Whether you're an English Language Arts teacher or an ESL/ELL teacher, this site can help your students learn new words. You might want to have students keep lists of words they come across in their reading. Then have them take turns using this site (at a center or individual laptops). Or, if YouTube is blocked at your school, have this site posted on your webpage for parent and student use at home.

If you are a science, history, math, or other subject area teacher, you might want to embed a few of the videos on your own page for weekly vocabulary.

The quality of the information on the videos is excellent. In the Common Core State Standards there is an emphasis on background knowledge. This program will not only help your students with vocabulary and word pronunciation, but will help them build their background knowledge!

FFFBI (Fin, Fur and Feather Bureau of Investigation) Academy is designed to help upper elementary and middle school kids -- especially those with attention issues -- manage the problems they face with schoolwork, homework, and even managing their binders. Each interactive is designed to teach useful skills and strategies, while continually encouraging you to complete increasingly difficult tasks. To increase interest, the FFFBI Academy uses its humorous spy theme and frequent reinforcements for successful game play. National Geographic has partnered to help produce this series of geography-themed missions. In each, students are introduced to a new country and receive a dossier of documents to help complete a mission. Each dossier contains maps, forensic information, media and wiretap intercepts, background information, and images. Each mission requires students to exercise geography skills and basic problem-solving in six interactive challenges. Each mission follows National Geographic's geography standards. Upon completion, a short Coffee Guy quiz debriefs students about the knowledge they have gained. There is an excellent teacher's section of the site containing a summary of each activities with tips and an approximate time to complete.

tag(s): map skills (79), mysteries (25), problem solving (272)

In the Classroom

Share the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector; then assign a challenge each week for students to work on during centers or on laptops in geography/social studies class. Use activities from different countries as an introduction to the country before starting classroom activities. Special Education teachers may want to offer this active alternative to traditional lessons for students with attention issues.

PortfolioVillage is a powerful eportfolio site where you or your students can showcase all types of work. PortfolioVillage is a free and easy to use program. Their unique drag and drop editor makes it easy. There are also editable flash widgets and the thousands of stock images and animations. You can create a flash portfolio website with media rich components: videos, audio, a play list, create forms, chats, and blogs. Be sure to watch the introduction video and read about the features provided.

PortfolioVillage must be updated every six months to stay free. Your portfolio will be deleted if not updated.

For those of you with iPads, this Flash site won't work for you. However, you might try Google Swiffy reviewed here. Google Swiffy is a tool that lets you convert Flash SWF files to HTML5 to view on non-Flash devices such as iTouch, iPad, and iPhone.

tag(s): creativity (109), portfolios (28)

In the Classroom

There are a gazillion ways to use an eportfolio! Have your students upload their current and past work that they think they might want to showcase. They can have an area for all their different talents whether it is drawing, writing, acting, creating games or codes, designing anything, or athletic prowess. Students could create an online presence to share in college or job applications.

You may want to start out slowly, allowing your students to choose a talent that may fit within traditional curriculum. Have students select several pieces to demonstrate their talent and upload it to a working portfolio. You can then have the students reflect on each piece in writing. Students should then choose one artifact to showcase; have them write about why that was their choice. The eportfolio can be presented in class by students using a projector or an interactive whiteboard. Teachers who have students for more than one year (such as in a gifted program or Art classes) can encourage students to show growth in their talents.

MrNussbaum.com was developed with the idea that crucial concepts, themes, ideas, and fact sets taught in the classroom can be enhanced over the internet through interactivity. Furthermore, for teachers to have a reliable k -8 internet site to use in the computer lab or in the classroom, that likely covers one or many themes currently being taught. The Math portion of the site contains dozens of interactives labeled by grade level and topic. Directly below the links to all different topics offered on the site there is a color coded display to help correctly identify grade-level suggestions for activities. For example, red for 1st Grade, orange for 2nd, and so on. Many different topics are offered including fact practice, estimation, rounding, fractions, decimals, money, time, coordinate grids, metric and standard units, and more. Many of the games offer an introductory video explaining how to play. 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. Some activities require a name, Mr. Nussbaum recommends that students never use their actual name but make up something. Names are not stored and login isn't required to play.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), coordinates (32), decimals (133), estimation (46), fractions (239), measurement (159), money (193), number sense (97), operations (126), rounding (22), time (144)

This well-designed and high tech site allows students and teachers to enter the world of the tombs of mummies. Featuring games and entrance to tombs and other exhibitions designed by the Musee de la Civilization in Quebec, the site creates high interest. Take your students back in time to Ancient Egypt and learn about the process of mummification, the jars in which the mummies' parts reside, and get a rich background in ancient Egyptian beliefs.

In the Classroom

Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. What a creative addition to Halloween and fall festivities! Provide the link to the French department; it is also available in French. Encourage your students to use this tool for projects and research about Egypt. The activities would work as a class activity, individual research, or with cooperative learning groups. Have students create online posters or papers or do it together as a class using tools such as Web Poster Wizard (reviewed here) or PicLits (reviewed here). Make an online poster about Egypt with this site as a jumping off spot; try Padlet (reviewed here).

In this activity, you take turns removing fruit from the table, in accordance with the rules. Whoever takes the last fruit from the table is the winner. This is a one player game - you versus the computer. Although it is deceptively easy, it is enjoyable to plan a winning strategy based on the different amount of fruit presented for each game. Rules are included as an overview before playing.
