Our New Toy Our classroom has a shiny new Smartboard! Today we tried it out together for the first time. There are lots of things that we SHOULD be able to do with a Smartboard, but I haven't figured out how just yet. We were able to play an online pattern game together, though. The children were eager to have their turn to come up to the front to chose the correct shape to complete the pattern.
If you'd like to play the Crazy Pattern Game, go to my webpage (see the links on the left side of the page), and click on Math Activities, then Numbers, then Foundations and then the Crazy Pattern Machine.
Incidentally, if you are reading this and are clever with a Smartboard, I have a question for you. Why is it that I can work the links, scrollbar and minimizing tools, but I can't close a window(even if it is in the middle of a page)or use the back arrow?
