New Teaching Resources for September

Student Activities

Several new student activities have been added since the last update. Teachers can find a set of three activities that will help students learn how to represent and compare integers and determine absolute value. How many computer-generated arithmetic problems can your students answer in 60 seconds? Arithmattac
k is a new math resource on misterteacher.com that teachers can use for drilling math facts.

A number of science activities have been added as well. First, there is a set of activities that teach students about thermal energy and temperature. Next, students will be able to define reflection and refraction after completing activities on the properties of light. Finally, activities on forces will teach your students about contact and non-contact forces like air resistance, gravity, magnetism, and friction.

Resources to Become a Teacher

There are many programs on the Internet that offer education degrees online. You can attend classes from your own home and work at your own pace. This is a decent alternative to going to a campus university for your teaching degree.

SMARTBoard Mini-movies

There are few new SMARTBoard mini-movies for math teachers. You can find one on parallel lines and two on parallelograms: one that shows congruent angles and one that shows congruent sides. Two new probability mini-movies are now up: coin flip and roll of the dice.

I've added a K-2 section to the library. Here you'll find mini-movies on recognizing patterns, addition and subtraction, and adding doubles. The
re will be many more mini-movies to come for this section.

There are four new science mini-movies, all on the topic of simple machines. Teach your students about the three classes of levers with two simple animations. Also, be sure to download both inclined plane movies to teach about the relationship between length and effort force.

COMING SOON! More mini-movies on K-2 math concepts, probability, and patterns (more advanced).

Please help me improve the resources on misterteacher.com. I welcome feedback and I do take suggestions on content that you would like to see as a mini-movie or student activity. Email Jamie Tubbs.

I love that you have all of these resources available to other teachers. I am a new teacher and finding sites like yours with all kinds of useful links is like finding a pot of gold! I am always looking for new ideas to use in the classroom that incorporate technology because students really respond well to such ideas and activities. I look forward to checking back to this blog and finding out what else you have to share. Thanks!

FTCE guide said...

New and very effective teaching resources for September. You see the FTCE is a standardized test so each new test must cover the same, closely approximated questions.
