Comic Creator The Comic Creator invites students to compose their own comic strips for a variety of contexts (prewriting, pre- and postreading activities, response to literature, and so on). The organizers focus on the key elements of comic strips by allowing students to choose backgrounds, characters, and props, as well as to compose related dialogue (shown at left). This versatile tool can be used by students from kindergarten through high school, for purposes ranging from learning to write dialogue to an in-depth study of a formerly neglected genre. Grades K – 3 | Lesson Plan | Standard Lesson Word Study with Henry and Mudge Henry and Mudge is used in this lesson to build students' word recognition through rereading, high-frequency word banks, word studies, and writing.

Projeter des prestations d'élèves en classe ? Mon propos est ici de relater une expérience que je tente depuis cette année en projetant des extraits de travaux d’élèves photographiés en classe. L’objectif est de raconter mon cheminement et l’intérêt que je vois à ce nouvel outil pédagogique afin de le faire partager. Enseigner des méthodes de travail Il est souvent compliqué de faire différencier à l’élève ce qu’il a écrit de ce qu’il voulait écrire. Du coup, permettre à l’élève d’avoir un jugement lucide sur sa copie et uniquement sur ce qu’elle contient, en faisant abstraction de tous les compléments qu’il serait en mesure d’apporter, lui faire comprendre que seule sa trace est entre les mains du correcteur, est un difficile apprentissage qui doit être travaillé. D’autre part, la manipulation de nouveaux outils amène des utilisations souvent maladroites qui ne choquent pas l’élève tant il n’est pas encore familier avec les notations qu’il commence à employer.

I used this website in elementary school and always loved it. As a teacher, this website can be used for math or reading skills by playing games and participating in activities that make math or reading fun! by megawolf Jun 4

This website is more for young and middle grade learners because of its games but I do think anybody can use them just for fun. It has math, reading games and fun games. I also like that it has a section for Spanish speakers in which they play "the translator alligator." by sindy11 Oct 7

Ce site est intéressant, car il propose des jeux éducatifs pour les enfants! Il serait possible de garder ce site dans les favoris d'une classe pour que les élèves puissent s'en servir lorsqu'ils sont à l'ordinateur! by roxanneforgues Oct 4
