Resources To Start Off Your Week 74

     This week I am really excited to have found some really practical resources that I know I can use right away in the classroom. I found one for math, one for art, and one for the general classroom! With there only being a few weeks left before school begins I am really happy to have found such applicable resources. As always, I will be adding these to my lists of resources under the Fav Websites heading.

1 ) Graphing Stories
- This project by Dan Meyer & BuzzMath is a neat, engaging way to
  practice graphing with your students. This website features short video
  clips depicting various real-life situations/stories that ask students to
  graph what they see. Students are provided with pre-labeled graphs &
  videos can be searched by type (constant, linear, increasing, etc).
- This website would be perfect for those teachers who do mental math
  with their students and I love the fact that students can actually see the
  real-life application as opposed to an abstract written question.

2 ) Reading Posters
- This posting features 24 different posters about reading that could be a
  great addition to a classroom or reading nook.
*Some posters do contain mature language & would need to be modified
  or altered before being used in the classroom.

3 ) You Made That
- This interactive from the NY Times allows users to create and share their original
  artwork. Users can chose from a variety of mediums including flowing ribbon,
  coloured salt, flower petals, stamps, and more.
- This website would be a fun activity for students to share their artwork and could
  be bookmarked on the class computer or iPads for students to explore if they are
  done work early.

Happy Monday everyone!
