How Magnetic is Your Writing?


In a recent post by Edutech for Teachers, Jamie Forshey writes about the the Halloween Magnetic board created and shared by Kasey Bell.  Before going any further, let me suggest that you follow both of these outstanding, educational blogs.

The board is created with Google Drawings and is an excellent way for students to practice copying Kasey’s template to their own Google Drive. This will require them to sign in to their gmail accounts. By using the tools of Google Drawings, they can make their Halloween Magnetic story as elaborate as their imagination allows.

Click here to make your very own copy of the template.

Pumpkin Maker


Here’s a fun activity that students can use to practice their understanding of 2D Geometric shapes. On this interactive site, students can use trackpad manipulation skills to draw any shape to design their own Jack-O-Lantern. Teachers can set the criteria to include a minimum number of different shapes or even require students to use all six shown above. When the students are finished, they click done and see what their creation will look like when lit up by an internal candle.

Take a screenshot and write a story using the names of these geometric shapes. Learning should be fun!

Understanding Arrays and Having Fun Doing It


Click on the image above to play Shikaku. This is a math strategy game will help students understand arrays. After they have completed each puzzle, teachers can have the students write the perimeter, area, or the multiplication fact for each array. I will warn you that it is highly addictive as well as challenging.
