Check Out My Newest Teaching Tool!

So do you want to know what is taking up most of my time? I got a new "toy" in my classroom that I am trying to figure out how to use. It's one of the coolest things I have ever seen and I want to make sure that my kids can enjoy it today so I spent ALL weekend researching and working with it. It's called a SMART Board and it's basically a fancy shmancy interactive white board that is hooked up to a computer. Here is a video that shows exactly how it works and I have then uploaded a video of Nick playing with the one in my classroom! Take a look! If you haven't seen one of these, it will blow your mind!

Hi, love your blog. I teach Kindergarten and my kids love the SmartBoard especially when I make games using Powerpoint. This opens up a whole new way of learning/interacting.

Have a great school year!!
