test taking skills: ninjas websites for kids Technology is pretty amazing! There are lots of wonderful ways to help our child practice the skills they are learning in school. Often times with some of these great educational sites our children don't even know that they are learning at the same time! It's also a great way to motivate kids to do their homework, have them do their reading and math first and for a reward they can play an educational game...tricky! A friend of mine asked me for some recommendations on some other educational websites, so you know me, I went crazy and found a bunch. I spent many hours digging through cyberspace to find and test out the following educational game sites. Just bookmark this page, and every time you want to use a new site you can come here to find it quickly. 1. This site has lots of great language arts games. 2. Hello! 3. Here's a wonderful site c/o one of my readers! 4. Well after I posted this list on Monday I found an phenomenal site on Wednesday! 5. Wo this is another great site. 6. 7. 8. 9.

20 Ways to Keep Your Students' Attention As the end of the year approaches, it can be more and more challenging to keep your students' attention. Brain Breaks are important, but there are plenty of things you can do within a lesson to keep kids from day dreaming...or worse yet, nodding off. Here are some ideas:Desk Switch: Students have ten seconds (count down from ten) to find another desk to sit in that is in a different part of the room than his or her normal desk. Did you get a new idea? quiz quiz trade Many kindergarten teachers are afraid to attempt Cooperative Learning! It's really easy and the kids have so much fun while they are learning! Here's a game called Quiz, Quiz Trade (Taken from my Kagan Cooperative Learning book!) This game will reinforce any skill you choose! Students are each given a card. You can use flashcards or any sort: alphabet, rhyming, numbers, addition facts. Play music for about 30 seconds. When the music stops, the kids all find a partner. They show each other their cards and the other partner must read their card. Teach the kids to partner pyramid (each partner puts a hand up to form a pyramid) to signify they are done. You start the music back up, kids walk around until the music stops. You can do this with every concept and every age or grade level! Please visit my TpT Store to see all the great Cooperative Learning Games I have! Blogger is acting up... here's the direct link!

Free, Printable Bingo Cards by Bingo Baker Cereal Box Puzzles | Make, Take & Teach Years ago I attended a literacy center workshop and the presenter offered tons and tons of great ideas for activities. I love the kind of workshops where you leave with great ideas for hands on activities that you can create and use the very next day! During the session she shared the “Cereal Box Activity”. I thought this activity was so very clever! It’s easy to make, has a self-checking feature and it can be used with many skills. It was a bit difficult seeing the finished product in the video so I attached this pic. Are you scrounging for boxes in your cupboards yet?
