ABC Mouse..... Free for Educators

Screen Shot 2016-01-13 at 11.49.19 AM.pngI always go back to my favorite saying, “the best resource is each of you.” There are two special (JK) teachers (not to name names) that challenged me to learn more about an opportunity for educators. They directed me to find out more about ABC mouse. It is designed for lower elementary students (ages 2-7). 
ABC Mouse is a full online curriculum resource. -- And did I forget to mention?  IT IS FREE!! You will find the following document in your Wash Tech Training Folder; however, the detailed instructions and tutorials are listed below.

You will have to sign up individually on the link below.

Flippity Floppity Boo --- I mean

As we are now in the heart of 3rd Quarter, there are many reviews and assessments taking place or about to take place.  You might be wanting a new type of exit ticket or a creative way to formatively assess your students. I might have just the thing you need...keep reading!   
Flippity...I love it!!  Easy to use, it’s free, and it works with Google Docs...
There are many Schuler teachers (but it’s great for all levels) that use this program... ask them what they think.  Get a jump start and use it for your 3rd and 4th Quarter Study guides in your Google Drive.  The best part about this website is they keep adding more tools: Quiz Certificate, Badge Tracker, Progress Indicator, Random Picker, Quiz Show (like Jeopardy).

Here’s a few more of my favorites!

GoFormative - GoFormative runs on any internet connected device and is optimized for any 1:1, flipped, or blended classroom.  This is a great replacement of the website Infused Learning. (November 2015 Blog) - Great Find Katie =-)

A great website to create a quiz, survey, or discussion. It’s a game-based classroom response system. (March 2015 Blog)

There are many tools posted on the #acsdtech Website. Click HERE to go directly to the Formative Assessment Webpage.
