Shel Silverstein Site


It’s time for the Wednesday Website suggestion!! For two years, I was the Technology Specialist at a school in Georgia. During that time, I amassed a large collection of websites that I use with my students. If you want to search through some of them, you can check out my IKeepBookmarks site. Or, you can check back here each week for the Wednesday Website suggestion.

April is National Poetry Month, so this week’s website suggestion Shel Silverstein Website - Raki's Rad Resources Reccomendssurrounds around my absolute favorite kid’s poet – Shel Silverstein. I have all of his books in my class – and we regularly read from A Light in the Attic and Where the Sidewalk Ends. In honor of this amazing author, my kids are going to spend some time this month at his official website. There are games, free printables, lesson plans and information about Shel Silverstein. It’s such a great sight, I wish I had time for an author study!

If you are looking for more activities for National Poetry Month – be Poetry Writing Journal on Teachers Pay Teacherssure to check out the Linky Party over at the ESOL Odyssey. I’ve linked up my poetry journal over there with her, and there are tons of other ideas and resources available.

Earth Day is coming up quick, and I know many classes are studying Ecology in preparation.  Here’s a great Ecology website from PBS called Eeko-Worldeekoworld that is extremely kid-friendly.  There are videos and games for students to play to encourage and explain many different aspects of ecology including: recycling, reducing air and water pollution, and preserving habitats.  Students can also create an eco-creature and use that creature to interact with other people’s eco-creatures.

Play with Shapes

3-dshapesMy students are currently studying 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes.  We have been using this cool website from Primary Resources to help them identify 3-dimensional shapes even when they see them from different angles or without the entire shape.  This concept can be hard for my students, but this great website that shows partially buried and angled 3-dimensional shapes really helped.  shapebook

Another way we’ve worked on this concept is with our shape booklet.  Students took the booklet home and searched for items in their house that were certain 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes.  It’s been a great way for them to see that a can of green beans is also a cylinder!  Grab a free copy of the booklet from Google Docs to use with your class if you’d like.

Doggy 100’s Chart Website


I love, love, love using the 100’s chart to teach math and number relationships.  In fact, right now two of my math centers are based on the 100’s chart.  I have a Hundred’s Chart center, which you can find on TPT, andwebsite then my computer center is also based on the 100’s chart too.  I am using the website Give the Dog a Bone, which is just an amazing website!  It gives students a blank 100’s chart with dog bones “hidden” under numbers.  If students click on the correct number, they find the bone.  If they click on the wrong number, it tells them the number they clicked on – giving them a clue to help them find the number they are looking for.  Plus, the best part for my classroom, is it is set on a 60 second timer.  Since I have just one computer in my room, I allow 3 students to go to the computer center.  They go, and take turns, so with a 60 second timer, the longest they ever have to wait for their turn is 2 minutes – which is about the length of the attention span of most of my students!
