Moving with Math 77 Educational Games and Game Builders I'm often asked if I know of any games for subject "x," "y," or "z" for a particular grade level or age group. My answer is usually yes, but I need to search my archives. Therefore, I've gone through my archives and dug up many of games that I've mentioned over the last four years that are still active online. 1. 2.Spin and Spell has been featured on a number of blogs over the last year. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 34. 35. 36. 37. 38. 39. the World Food Programme's website offers students a large selection of educational online games and activities. 40. 41. 42. 43. 44. 45. 46. 47. 48. 49. 50. 51. 52. 53. 54. 55. 56.

Place Value Mats Ten-Frame Mat Math mats help students organize materials in a mathematically meaningful way. They may also serve as prompts to reinforce mathematical concepts and skills. For example, ten-frame mat help young students organize objects by tens, reinforcing that important place value concept of our base-ten number system. It is developmentally appropriate to have students begin with ungrouped materials (e.g. unifix cubes, beans, etc.) and place one object in each square of the ten frame to create a ten. Double Ten-Frame Mat Next, students use a double ten-frame mat to model numbers from 1-20. The teen numbers are notoriously hard for kindergarten students. Finally, ask students to name the number represented and either write the number (if inserted in a sheet protector) or select the appropriate number card. Tens-Ones Mat Later on, students transition to the tens-ones mat with ten frames in the ones place to build upon the ten-frame skills and introduce the tens place. Please select a topic:

Khan Academy Unity Basics: An Introduction | Blurst Technology Unity 2.5′s release is finally on the horizon, which means Windows editor! In addition to some great new workflow and editor features, 2.5 will also usher in a wave of Windows users. There is a lot to learn about Unity, when you first encounter it, so we’re going to do a series of Unity Basics posts, with an introduction to some of the core concepts. This first post answer the question: Unity’s scope makes concise definition difficult. An Integrated Editor Unity provides an editing environment where you organize your project assets, create game objects, add scripts to these objects, and organize objects and assets into levels. The IDE is largely stateless, in that there is little distinction between creating your levels and playing them. Different team members and disciplines use the editor differently. A Component Architecture Paradigm Unity utilizes a component-based architecture. For example, a physical crate might be: Here’s the key: When you create a script, you create a component.

Writing in Mathematics Featured Topic: Writing in Math Class Teachers incorporate writing in math class to help students reflect on their learning, deepen their understanding of important concepts by explaining and providing examples of those concepts, and make important connections to real-life applications of the math they are learning. Teachers use the writing assignments to assess student understanding of important concepts, student proficiency in explaining and using those concepts and each student's attitude toward learning mathematics. Writing in mathematics is a win-win for both teacher and student. Although it may be difficult to introduce this practice, it is well worth the effort. Getting Started with Math Writing Often students who have difficulty writing in math class have less difficulty telling the teacher what they think. Think-Pair-Share: Some students are reluctant to write at first and benefit from practice sharing thoughts with a partner and hearing that partner put thoughts into words.
