2. More Whiteboard Small Group Activities
Spin and Spell: This spelling game is awesome for primary students. Turn down the sound so as not to disturb other groups. Quite seriously, all you K-2 and ESL teachers, check it out!!
Silly Sentence Maker: Students make sentences by dragging nouns and verbs into boxes. Correctly formed sentences are rewarded with a picture. Great for subject-verb agreement and practicing fluency.
Graphing: Create a grid or select one from the resource library. Give students a box of objects (these can be real or place a set of objects on the flipchart) and have them collaborate to correctly create a graph of the objects.
SMARTboard activities: Did you know you could use those SMARTboard files you see all over Pinterest on your Promethean board? Simply download the file to your computer, open Active Inspire, then on the File menu choose Import/SMART Notebook File. Here's a Dice Roll and Tally Game and a Fraction Activity to experiment with. SMARTboard files can also be opened using SMART Notebook Express.
Word Search: Create your own word search using Dolch words or science and social studies vocabulary. Use the annotate on desktop tool to have students select the words.
