Choose from several formats to make your own games such as word, graphic or term matching, drag and drop terms, or create a quiz. Each type of activity contains explicit instructions for creating and personalizing games for individual needs. Follow directions included for creating links to games. Pre-made games offer practice in math skills such as multiples, fractions, telling time, and more. Each game includes directions before play begins.

tag(s): addition (251), angles (88), division (172), fractions (239), logic (235), multiples (35), multiplication (227), subtraction (208), time (144)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this site throughout the year. Not comfortable creating your own games? Use the ready-made learning games on class computers or provide links to activities on your class website or blog for use at home.

Find an easy, interactive tool to create storyboards at Storyboard That. Choose between three and six frame storyboards, and build a storyboard using the free library with drag and drop technology. Before you begin, you may want to look at the example storyboards for business and teachers. With a free account, you can save three times a day, print, and embed your storyboard. To share and save storyboards, you must register with an email. Only the introductory video uses Flash.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): creative writing (166), digital storytelling (145), writing (359)

In the Classroom

Demonstrate how to create a storyboard using "Storyboard That" on your interactive whiteboard (or use your projector and screen). As you and your students create a class story, show them the different selections of characters, settings, dialogue boxes and more. Show them how easy it is to edit anything in the frame. Have your students use "Storyboard That" for anything from brainstorming for a video story they want to create to a final copy of a story, report, or poem. This is a highly engaging way to teach your students about story elements, dialogue, character development, etc. Challenge students to create a storyboard of a book or short recently finished in class as a review of characters and story plot. World language students can create storyboards and label the images, or tell the story in the language they are learning. "Storyboard That" has a growing collection of lesson plans and you can also contribute yours. Math teachers can use the interesting storyboard characters to explain word problems and capture reluctant student's interest. Have your students complete biographies for famous people. Tell the story of different famous events in history or explain their understanding of cell division using this easy program that produces entertaining results. Autistic or emotional support teachers can have students storyboard interpersonal behavior skills.

Annotary is a social bookmarking and annotation service provided through an extension for Google Chrome and Firefox. Bookmark sites, highlight portions of pages, and annotate pages with sticky notes. Create as many collections as you like for each project, topic, or idea. Share bookmarks using icons on each page for most major social networks. Search by user, keyword, or collection names. Sign up with your Facebook account or use your email and a user name.

tag(s): bookmarks (60), social networking (112)

In the Classroom

There are so many applications and possibilities for this site! Use prompts on articles to build Common Core skills analyzing informational texts. How many times have we heard students complain during a group project, "But I couldn't get to his or her house to work on it?" Tell them to use Annotary to interact online. The research and conversations created through highlighting and annotating what they read can greatly enhance both their research skills and their online interaction on academic level skills. Or use the site to post and share discussion assignments on specific articles or even parts of articles using the highlighting tool. Find a relevant article to your subject, highlight the part that you want students to read. (If students are younger keep it short to reduce the intimidating reality of too much information for kids.) Attach a note with a discussion question for the students. Have them comment on the link in a "class discussion" as an outside assignment. If you are fortunate enough to have all students with computer access in your class and at home, such as in one to one laptop program schools, you can use this essentially to run your class. Post assignments or post readings. Science teachers can post online interactive labs, and more. The site even allows students to submit work via the comment.

StudyDroid is an online flashcard creator (with a new twist). They have a database of over 3 million sets of cards. Create cards online or on a mobile device. Take pictures from your mobile phone to include on flash cards; then sync to the site to download for mobile use. Register using your email to save and access cards from anywhere. Use the search feature to find flashcards available. Choose the study online option or print to have a printed copy. Share card sets using the share button to email or share via common social networking sites. When viewing online, click in the large box displaying the question to see the correct answer.

tag(s): flash cards (46), test prep (96), vocabulary (324), vocabulary development (126)

In the Classroom

Create flashcards for your classes or have them make their own. Try using them as an introduction to a concept, then again in the practice of the concept, and again as a final review. It is a nice three for one creation deal! This would be great for teaching Latin prefixes and suffixes of words to students. Use in science terms, or for standardized test preparation. Try having students create flashcards and share with each other to quiz themselves within their own groups. Teach students in higher grades how to create flash cards with multiple blanks to challenge their brain to remember more pieces of the puzzle. Show them how to carefully read through their classroom notes and underline the most important word or words in a sentence. Then have them leave out the most important words for their flashcards. Learning support teachers might want to have small groups create cards together to review before tests. Have students create flashcard sets to "test" classmates on what they "teach" in oral reports. Be sure to check the data base for already created sets to save you time making them yourself!

Create interactive timelines of geographically-located events on Google Maps and share them on the web for free. Hover over events on the Google map (or use Google Earth) to enlarge and view a summary of relevant information. Click play to scroll through events in chronological order. Create your own or browse many of the timelines on the site. No registration is necessary to view timelines already created by others. Sign up with an email account to create or comment on timelines. Create a new timeline, including a title, select a category, and add as many stops on the timeline as you wish. Share using Facebook, Twitter or an RSS feed. Click "embed/share" to copy a url to share with others or an embed code to use in a blog, wiki, or other site. Choose from three privacy level settings to customize viewing options. Be aware: the comments are not moderated, so please preview.

tag(s): timelines (62)

In the Classroom

Consider creating a class account with a single login and password. Ask students to initial their timelines as well to indicate ownership. There are many ways to include this in class. Every topic in history, literature, sciences, and the arts has dates and recorded events. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to learn about the history of the Olympics, famous people, events, literature, and more. Have students create timelines to share research projects. Use the timeline as a visual tool to discuss events in literary works or the life of a scientist, political figure, or pop artist. Create animal life cycles mapped to their habitat, author or presidential biographies, or even timelines of the events and causes leading to a war. Make a timeline using local, national, or international current events. Elementary students could even interview grandparents and create a class timeline about their grandparents' generation for Grandparents' Day. For collaboration, link up with another classroom in another town (or another country) to build a timeline that shares events in each local area so students can see what was happening at the same time in another location (maybe in the opposite hemisphere: compare weather and seasons!) Students can use the timeline as a visual aid during presentations. Student groups can work on different aspects of the same time period to share with the rest of the class. For example, in studying World War II, one student group can create a timeline of Japanese occupation, another of the German occupation, and so forth. The timelines are perfect to share on your interactive whiteboard or projector as well as on a class wiki.

Challenge your gifted students by having them create mapped timelines of contrasts: The life cycles (and locations) of two migrating species, the events leading to the end of World War II in Europe and the Pacific, the lives of two famous Americans from two different centuries. They could embed the results in a wiki page so other students can view and comment (or ask questions).

Tackk is a new way for sharing and creating web content. It is almost like designing a one page web site. Start with an image or idea, NO membership required (for short term pages). Personalize the look of your content using the editor to change colors, fonts, and background. You can also add tags. Choose from themes on the left to begin customization or just click on different portions of the page to upload a picture, edit your title, and write a description. Add additional information using links provided. Paste a link to your Youtube, Vimeo, Hulu, Instagram, or Soundcloud to embed songs, photos, and more. Sign up isn't required. However, your Tackk will only be available for a week if not registered on the site. Free registration allows multiple Tackks, available indefinitely. Savvy users can make a Tackk private (i.e. hidden from search engines), password protect your Tackks, add tags, and even collect them into Tackkboards by tag -- very handy for seeing a full class's work simply by having students use the same tag. Click the word Tackk then on the FAQ in the footer of the page to learn how to do all of these and more! Share completed Tackks using social media links at the bottom of the page or via the unique url created and available at the top of the page. People who wish to comment must do so using an account on Facebook or other social media, so the commenting feature is somewhat limited.

tag(s): creative writing (166), journals (21), multimedia (57), posters (36)

In the Classroom

Share any short term announcement visually without joining or set up a class account for all to use. One of the options when you click "Create" is Class Assignment! If students have email, they can set up individual accounts. Have students create a Tackk instead of a book report. Have students copy a story into Tackk and expand using multimedia and photos. Have students make Tackks as online posters advertising healthy eating or reminding others about grammar rules. Create a Tackk to introduce any unit or a webquest. Use it to compile review materials; then share the link on your classroom website. Have students create a Tackk for upcoming book fairs, math or science night, or any school activity then print the finished items for display around the classroom or school. As a back to school introduction, make a cooperative Tackk of class rules or allow students to make a Tackk introducing themselves without a photo. Have others try to match the Tackks to their classmates.

DigitWhiz is an amazing math program (set up like a game) that guides mastery in five key math skills: multiplication, division, integer operations, like terms, and solving operations. It is geared for ages 8+. Playing the interactives allows the program to evaluate skills and prescribe activities leading to mastery and development. This tool differentiates the difficulty levels for each student. Activities are easy to follow and include directions. Set up an account for an entire classroom to view class or individual student progress. Import names from a current list or add names manually. The full site is in Flash so does not work on iOS devices; however, there is a link to a free iPad version.

tag(s): division (172), integers (41), multiplication (227), operations (126), order of operations (33), problem solving (272)

In the Classroom

Demonstrate the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Create a classroom account and allow students to use the program on classroom computers. Share this site with parents to use at home. Parents can create their own account. Use this site as a math intervention resource for students that need additional practice in mastering math skills addressed by this program. More advanced students could use this site for enrichment and advancement as this site caters to students' current levels.

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 (155), inequalities (29), sequences (16), sequencing (31)

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 resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

Make any quotation, passage of text, or poem into a "word mosaic" (graphical display). Paste in any text to create an word image. Choose your own colors, background, and shape/symbol: star, smiley faces, initials, and more. You can print creations or share via email, Facebook, or Twitter. Play with options under Layout, Color, and Font menus to change the look. There are links on this site to public galleries of remixes and symbols associated with another application.Save the image in one of three sizes using the export option. Be sure to preview before sharing from the homepage or Gallery.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): bulletin boards (16), vocabulary (324), word clouds (10), word study (80)

In the Classroom

This is a terrific visual tool to share on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Paste in a passage or URL for a political speech to visualize the politician's "message." Analyze advertising propaganda by visualizing the language used in TV or print ads. Create word mosaics of historical texts of inauguration speeches as time capsules of the issues of the day. Use this site as a way to help students see and memorize text, especially visual learners. Make Dolch word/sight word mosaics for students to take home for practice. ESL and ELL students will eagerly use this site since word order will no longer be a problem for them. Have students work in groups to create word posters of vocabulary words with related meanings (such as different ways to say "walk"). Have students make mosaics for each part of speech to help them remember examples. Decorate your classroom with these visual reminders of the richness of language. Another idea: use this site during the first week of school. Have students create word mosaics about themselves and create a bulletin board introducing your students (and yourself). In elementary grades, create greeting cards for holidays and special occasions using spelling words and holiday words.

This free site provides a color-coded mashup of current news headlines, clickable to see the full articles. View various sections of the news separately by clicking on the colored icons along the top. Sort into World, National, Finance, Tech, Showbiz, and Sport. To read the full article, click on the brief story (in the box). Use the drop-down feature to search news stories in a variety of other countries.

tag(s): countries (77), financial literacy (80), news (261), sports (97)

In the Classroom

Use this site to select current events for the day. Follow the same news thread for a period of time to look at changes and possible reasons for the change in the news. Be sure to check news stories from other countries for a different viewpoint on issues. Create a class discussion for the differences in viewpoints. Challenge cooperative learning groups to explore ONE of the subtopics (Showbiz, World, Finance, etc..) and present the highlights to the class. Have students make a multimedia presentation using one of the many TeachersFirst Edge tools reviewed here.

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 (163)

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.
