Sixteen Option Spinner

What it is: The Sixteen Option Spinner is another winner from Triptico.  This online spinner lets you customize it with sixteen options.  The spinner is random and removes the option once it has been landed on. How to integrate Sixteen Option Spinner into the classroom: The Sixteen Option Spinner is perfect for a projector or interactive whiteboard.  Use the spinner to customize class games, to choose a story starter for writing, to teach probability, to choose a math operation for students to perform, to select a landmark that students find on a map, or to choose a reading comprehension question for students to answer.  You could also use the Sixteen Option Spinner to enter student names and spin the spinner to choose who will answer a question next or use it as a motivational tool and add names throughout the day with a winner randomly selected at the end of the day. Tips: Triptico has other customizable spinners, choose the spinner that best fits your activity needs.  Four Option Spinner, Probability Spinner (This one automatically records the results as students spin.), Eight Option Spinner, Role Chooser, Eight Number Spinner (not customizable). Leave a comment and tell us how you are using Triptico Spinners  in your classroom.

“It’s Project PLN Time, Project PLN Time!”

“It’s Project PLN Time, Project PLN Time!” (In my head, that is being sung to the tune of “It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time, Peanut Butter Jelly Time!”)  There are dance moves accompanying this. Can you tell I’ve been surrounded by 10 year olds all day long? ;)  Are you singing it now?  Good.

Project PLN is now accepting submissions for the November Issue.  This issue is labeled the “Sharing Issue”.  Whenever teachers get together, we quickly start sharing great lesson plans, resources and tools that we have discovered (this is one of the reasons that my husband is not interested in having dinner with a bunch of educators!).  Since it isn’t practical for us to all get together for a edugeeky dinner, we want Project PLN to be a place where people can share their awesome lesson plans or resources with everyone out there.

If you think you have something awesome to share, please send an email to ProjectPLN10@gmail.com and we will add it to the November Issue. Please follow the guidelines for submissions below so we can quickly and easily load your posts to the site.

Please email the article or link to the article to ProjectPLN10@gmail.com

Please include a small bio that includes your blog, Twitter handle and other information you would like to share. A picture is encouraged, but not required.

It may be a piece you have published on your blog already. A good idea is still a good idea even if you had it a few months ago.

Please submit posts by Monday November 5. We expect for the issue to go live on Tuesday November 13.

Thanks again for all of the support you have given Project PLN over the years.
