This simple (yet extremely useful) site presents a printable 100-square grid PDF file. Directions for the activity are provided at the website. This geometry activity is a perfect addition to your 100th day celebration with older elementary students or middle school students. The challenge is to plot coordinates on a grid, then place a dot at the correct location. Once students connect the dots, a hidden picture appears (which of course relates to the 100th day celebration). This site requires Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): coordinates (32)

In the Classroom

Print off the grid for your students. Project the page on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have students work with a partner at their seats.

Practice adding, subtracting, recognizing patterns, and graphing with this nice collection of interactive activities. Aligned to standards and ranked by level of difficulty, these interactive games help reinforce basic skills, encourage independent work, and provide students with instant feedback. There is also an option to print the activities. Non-readers will need some help with the text and written responses.

This site features two activities that are perfect for your 100th day celebrations: Counting Coins (counting to 100) and A Sweet Story (estimation up to 100). This site requires both Flash and Adobe Acrobat. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): addition (249), counting (119), estimation (46), subtraction (206)

In the Classroom

This site includes numerous "ready to go" math learning center activities. Share the activities with your students on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students practice their math independently. The two "100s" activities are perfect additions to your 100th day celebration. You may want to list this site in your class newsletter and on your class website so students can practice these basic foundations of math at home.

In the Classroom

There are many 100th day sites out there, but this one includes middle school grades too. Check out the activities in the areas that you teach. Most require minimal preparations. Use the writing prompts as the starting point for your 100th Day celebration. Share all of the prompt options on your interactive whiteboard or projector, then allow students to choose which prompt to write about. Why not share the lesson ideas with your class a few days before the 100th day and allow students to vote for their favorite lesson idea. Or allow cooperative learning groups to try the activities on their own.

These five sources provide Creative Commons images and videos for use in your blog/wiki/web site LEGALLY. Model your ethical use of media by sharing these with your blogging students or using them on your whole-class blog or wiki. The sources include abstract photos and current events new stories, as well as general photos. Each has its own search/browse features. The services include: Voxant Newsroom, PicApp, GumGum, Zemanta, and PhotoDropper.

tag(s): blogs (89), images (269)

In the Classroom

Since each site has its own directions, our review team will not explain the how-to's of each here. Some require access to install a plug-in on your blog, such as wordpress. Many school blogging sites do not provide this access. Others permit embedding an image simple by copy/pasting code into your blog or wiki. Two are actually extensions you add to Firefox or Internet Explorer and may require tech department authorization or installation on school computers.

If you do allow students to join a site, be sure to adhere to school policies. As always, we recommend previewing the content available on each site before recommending it to your students. These images sites are NOT education-only, so some image content may not be classroom-appropriate. Have a policy and consequences in place before turning your students loose.

Art teachers or writing teachers can use the abstract images from the GumGum option as writing prompts or to launch discussion on design principles. If your students have individual blogs, allow them to personalize the "look" using these legal images. Be sure to model thinking aloud about why you are using a legal image source. Use news images or videos from Vixant Newsroom as prompts for current events discussions on your blog or wiki, or assign students to select a news story and write an in-depth analysis of it to accompany the image/video. English or social studies teachers teaching persuasive writing can assign students to use their multimedia skills as they present arguments both verbally and visually on a class "issues" wiki. Younger students can help select images to include on a whole-class wiki or blog then add their own writing about them. A teacher can embed a sequence of photos and ask student to tell the story that explains it. Be sure to include this link on your teacher web page for your tech-savvy teens to use as they generate projects with LEGAL images. Of course you will require them to document their sources.

Use this simple and free tool to create a video recording of your screen to upload and share on a teacher web page, wiki. blog, etc.. This is an easy way to create a tutorial from your own computer screen. When you visit sites that have tutorials on how to use their software, you are looking at a screencast. Use this site to give specific directions on how to use different applications in and out of the classroom. Audio is not necessary for the screencasts but may be beneficial, depending upon the tutorial. An example can be found here.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): tutorials (46)

In the Classroom

Users will need to know how to use whatever computer software, website, or skill they are demonstrating. Following basic directions and managing browser windows or tabs are a must, as well as the managing settings of the computer being used. The site demonstrates how to troubleshoot problems on both PC's and Mac's.

Click "create" to start. As the screencast is being created, files will need to be written temporarily to the desktop. A security screen will pop up that asks to run the application. You will be asked to "trust" or "not trust" the security certificate. Depending upon your school's Acceptable Use Policy and computer security settings, you may not be able to complete these steps. Choose the screen size when played and whether audio will be needed (audio can be tested here as well, which is recommended: settings may need to be adjusted for different microphones.) Open a new tab or browser window and enter the web address of the site (or software) that will be the subject of your screencast. Drag the black frame by clicking the line and dragging it in order to choose what will be recorded during the screencast. The microphone icon has a green bar that shows recording levels. A green arrow showing instead of a green bar denotes that sound is not being captured. The red button is used to start recording while the black "X" stops the recording. Once you stop recording, click on your screencast tab or browser window and preview your recording. You can then either upload or discard your screencast. At this point you can create an account easily. Save your screencast to a channel of your own. Use the embed code to place your screencast into a blog, wiki, or other site. You can also use a widget code to embed the screencast player into a website. Screencasts can then be made from your other site and will save directly to your screencast channel. Screencasts can be set to different levels of privacy and comments can be turned on or off.

Teachers who must request certificate approval by tech staff may want to try this tool at home and create some sample projects to convince administration of its educational value. Unless checked to turn off comments, this site will allow comments on your work. Many districts prohibit such interaction and steps should be taken to prohibit commenting from others. When using the widget, the tool does not attribute work to specific students. You may wish to have the students identify their work while creating the screencast. Screencasts will only be able to be viewed when using an embed code in a site, wiki, or blog. By marking the screencast "searchable," it can be available to the public. Recently created screencasts do not appear on the home page of screencast-o-matic. Students are able to self-register, but you may want to keep a record of logins and passwords for students who forget.

Make how-to demos for instructions on using and navigating your class home page, class wiki or blog, or other applications you wish the students to use in creation of classroom content. By narrating how you want students to navigate through a certain site or section, you can eliminate confusion, provide an opportunity for students to use the information as a refresher for the future, and maintain a record for absent students. Software demonstrations add an increased flexibility with helping students who need it while allowing students to begin and work at their own pace. Added audio is a great asset for many students including learning support and those who might need to access the material in smaller "chunks." Use this site for students to give "tours" of their own wiki or blog page. The presentation of their web-based projects and resources can be more engaging. Use screencasts to critique or show the validity of websites, identify a resource site they believe is most valuable, or explain how to navigate an online game. Challenge your gifted students to create a screencast as a final project rather than a more traditional project. Social studies teachers could assign students to critique a political candidate's web page using a screencast. Reading/language arts teachers could have student teams analyze a web site to show biased language, etc. For a powerful writing experience, have students "think aloud" their writing choices as the record a screencast of a revision or writing session. You will probably need to model this process, but writing will NEVER be the same! Math teachers using software such as Geometer's Sketchpad could have students create their own narrated demonstrations of geometry concepts as review (and to save as future learning aids). Teachers at any level can create screencasts to demonstrate a computer skill or assignment, such as for a center in your classroom or in a computer lab. Students can replay the "tutorial" on their own from your class web page and follow the directions.

Printable paper rulers offers various types of rulers ranging from inches to centimeters, metric measurement, meter sticks, various amounts of tick marks, and even large print. This site requires Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): measurement (157)

In the Classroom

Simply choose the ruler you wish to use, print it, copy it, paste it to cardboard, and laminate it! Be sure to follow the technical tip about "shrink to fit"! Use the printable rulers if your budget does not provide funding for them or if you want to go green and save resources. Place them on student desks, in centers, or in take-home folders. Choose the large print rulers for children with certain IEP requirements and for the primary grades. Allow students to color their rulers to help them remember units by color.

Students can practice math skills independently (and in both English and Spanish) with this collection of challenging, interactive practice activities, organized by grade level and topic. Click Spanish version at the top for your ESL/ELL students to have access to the same valuable resources! The website says the activities are designed for students in grades K through eight. Topics vary greatly and include algebra, statistics, counting, comparing, decimals, basic operations, exponents, fractions, and many others. Nearly every math topic taught in elementary or middle school, will be found at this site. Once you click on the general topic area, be prepared for a HUGE list of specific choices to explore. Each math concept is explained in a simple paragraph and then students are presented with practice activities about the specific concept. The practice activities are timed.

Be aware there are several advertisements at this website (all appropriate). But considering this site is free (and full of ready to go math activities), the advertisements are worth the minor annoyance.

tag(s): estimation (46), exponents (42), measurement (157), mental math (27), money (192), patterns (85), place value (56), statistics (122)

In the Classroom

This site has countless possibilities in the classroom. Use the descriptions and activities as an anticipatory set for a new topic in math class. Share the activities on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Set up a learning station for students and differentiate the activities for your lower and higher level math students. Provide this link on your class website for students to use to review at home.

Use an interactive whiteboard or projector to introduce this activity (or review basic concepts of money). Then allow students to work independently and try out the activity. This one will work well for students practicing during assigned times on a single classroom computer or cluster.
