  1. I didn't know BBC had punctuation splat! My students played a similar game on before it became a subscription site. Wonderful to know that there is an alternative!

  2. These are some good game ideas; our school recently installed smartboards in each elementary classroom, so I'm happy to have found your site for more tech/teaching ideas. Thanks!

  3. These websites are great! I'm always looking for games to play on the smart board. Our school also got smart boards for our classrooms this year, and many of the teachers are having a time trying to figure out how best to integrate them. I've settled on two usual ways, although I'm always trying to learn new ones: one, for grammar correction (I teach 6th grade English/Language Arts). Students approach a word document on the smart board and draw over top of the sentences to correct grammar. Two, more recently, I displayed about eight small pictures that all helped to tell Bessie Coleman's biography (i.e. an airplane, a globe, a log cabin). Students dragged, resized, and rotated the pictures to put together their own stories as an anticipation guide before we began reading about Bessie Coleman. It took awhile, but wouldn't you know that it worked when we later sat down and read her story together for nearly 30 minutes!

  4. There are lot of platform that provide correct sentences online services for the students. This approach is becoming very useful.
