iboard: A Day at the Park

What it is: A Day at the Park asks students to position characters at a park and then construct sentences about their placement or movement.  Students can construct the statements by using a word bank, or the word bank can be hidden.  This is a great activity for students to practice describing words. How to integrate iboard: A Day at the Park into the classroom: A Day at the Park was created to be used with an interactive whiteboard. To use it with an interactive whiteboard or projector, invite students up to manipulate the characters in the park scene.  Then ask other students to describe their positions and movements by constructing sentences below the scene.  This would also make an excellent literacy center activity.  Send students to the classroom computers in pairs where they can take turns placing characters and describing their positions. Tips: iboard has a variety of activities for the interactive whiteboard that can be purchased. A Day at the Park is one of their freebie samples.

Last week was my spring break, after enjoying a week off I find that my browsers are full of open tabs of sites that I was exploring.  In an effort to close some tabs and keep my Google Notebook from bursting at the seams, I am going to post several ideas for integrating technology into your classroom today.  Enjoy!
