Teaching Trends Tuesday
Technology is a growing tool in our 21st century classrooms. Maximizing technology in the classroom isn't always an easy task. I thought I would share a program with you that our school purchased a couple years ago. It is call Education City, and I LOVE IT! It can be used on interactive boards and student computers. It aligns with standards (even COMMON CORE) and has printable worksheets to go along with the skills. This is a great whole group/small group activity or an independent work station. You can purchase reading, math, and science. They also offer English Language Learner support and activities. Our school got pre-k through 5th grade reading, math, and science. I can use some of the pre-k activities during the first few weeks of school, kindergarten for the middle of the year, and then use the first grade toward the end of the school year. You can create "cities" that have skills to match different learners' needs. My higher students can work above grade level without other students knowing, as well as, my low students can work on a lower level without anyone knowing! You can track students activity to see how they are doing. New games are added weekly! Check it out! You can get a free trial! Awesome characters, very user friendly, and engaging activities!
