Teacher Week Day 2 - Technology Tip


Oh boy! I presented at a Teaching, Learning, and Technology Conference this summer and gained tons of resources! It was amazing, but also overwhelming and I can’t seem to recall any of the great ideas without looking at my notes, and I’m not really sure where they ended up.  LOL!

Here are 3 things I shared during my presentation: Logo -  is a great site!  Here is the description on the site:

“ is the leader in free educational kids computer games and activities for elementary students to learn on the web. All children's educational computer activities were created or approved by certified school teachers. All educational games are free and are modeled from primary grade lessons and enhanced to provide an interactive way for children to learn.

Grade level lessons incorporate areas such as math and language arts while introducing basic computer skills. Many of the kindergarten and first grade activities are equipped with sound to enhance understanding. Fun children's Holiday activities are available in grade level sections!”

Miss A’s Kindergarten’s amazing technology tutorials!  They were a big hit when I shared them at the conference and I can’t wait to try them out in the classroom!

Talk Points from Learning Resources - Allows teachers to record directions for payback.  These are useful for center directions, assisting students with recalling verbally generated sentences, and spelling activities.



Pet of the Day -  This is another fun resource!  Each day, a new pet is featured for the class to read about.  We posted a map and kept track of the locations of the pets. The reading was very motivating and the kids enjoyed learning about different pets.  So fun!
