Love New Tools

Just gotta share some of my latest finds with you. Hope you will like them as much as I do!

Winter may make us want to hibernate and get lazy, but in the classroom we have to get kids up and moving! The more activity we have, the more learning! This site was a true find recently when I was checking my Twitter feed. It is called Go Noodle. Hilarious name, but awesome concept. Here you will find videos to get your kids up and moving. Whether they are doing Zumba kids or deep breathing, you will find a brain break to help students focus. Couple of things about this website. First, you have to use a computer because it is Flash based. Sorry iPad folks. Second, there is a free version and a paid version. Great resources in the free version, but more obviously in the paid version. Set up a free account and give it a try!
 You probably know that I am a big fan of the app Write About This! I have used Write About This with different elementary grade levels and kids always love it. The concept is they select a photo and then write about the photo. In the app they can also record narration. This has worked great because students can either record their thoughts prior to writing or use the record feature to share their written work. 

Well, now the app creator has a new tool we can use with this same concept. Tell About This provides students with pictures to select, but instead of writing about the photo they record themselves telling about it. Can you say Speaking and Listening Common Core Aligned? Yeah! This is so handy for ELL/ESL students, special needs kids, shy students, or as a presentation tool. I am already jazzed about this one and hope you will use it soon also!

  1. Hey Lori!

    I attended your conference in Raleigh this Tuesday and LOVED all of the tools you shared. Two of my FAVORITES that I really cannot wait to use with my kiddos were; Educreations and instaGrok! Thanks again!
