The Northern Nevada Writing Project - 4 views

  •  
    Carol Walters hooked me on the website. Once there you can sign up for the "Writing Lesson of the Month Network & Ning" I have received two monthly emails writing lessons and it so far I think it is fantastic. It is based on the 6 traits of writing and uses picture books as the backbone of the lesson. Also student examples are provided and requested, so you can send your students' examples. I have only browsed the lessons so far and would love to try some out.

      I have tried Sumopaint and liked it.

      Aviary also has Myna... probably the coolest audio editing tool around.  I love it.
  •  
    Sometimes you just have to draw, and paint, and erase, and draw some more.
    This Blog post has links to 12 free online drawing tools and has nice short annotations.  Of these, I have only used Sumopaint and Aviary.  I am looking forward to trying some other ones.
    I have also had a ton of fun with sketchup on a smartboard.
  •  
    Today as an extension to creating towers etc with blocks my grade ones and twos worked with google sketch up on both the SMARTboard and stand alone computers- pretty cool

    I actually used this with my gr. 1/2 class, even! We used it after reading the math lit book "Equal Schmequal"... Check out Christine's lesson plan on our District Math Site: http://web.sd71.bc.ca/math/index.php?page=lessons-activities-grade-2
  •  
    This looks fantastic! Good first day back kinda activity!! "Equal Schmequal" sounds like a great resource too!
  •  
    Yes, Alissa the lesson plan that Michelle is referring to is fanatastic and kids of all ages seem to grasp this concept pretty quickly. In fact my 6 year old son intuitively got it before my 10 year old.

    Super Alissa, I am going to use some of the multiplication games today - multiplication arrays and base ten blocks!
  •  
    I checked out this site and see some useful lessons for our grade 5/6 class. Thanks.
  •  
    Alissa I used the multiplication arrays and it was fantastic for teaching that 9 x 8 could be partitioned into (9 x 4) + (9X4). The kids made connections to partitioning and part-part-whole.

    Jan showed me this one and it was wonderful. I didn't have to say a word to remind the kids what a prime number - the buzz around the classroom produced the answer.

    This is not a truely interactive site, but the quality is high.
  •  
    While these stories are not interactive, I listened to White Socks Only and it is a marvelous story which lends itself to predicting and cultural tolerances and racism. What kids don't like to have a story read to them with a different voice than their teacher's. Thanks Jan.
