After leaving GL training, I made the commitment to myself to use the Smartboard in at least one lesson a day. The Rose Hill 3rd grade team has been collaborating with Sarah Feaster to use power point to introduce/teach Storytown vocabulary, and I wanted to develop some of those practices with matching vocabulary, as well as integrate the board into Math. I found a site which has lessons already designed that one can download: http://faculty.usiousfalls.edu/arpeterson/smartboard.htm I downloaded a coupld good formats and started to edit them to fit our needs and learning goals. What I discovered, was that the lessons I downloaded were great for not only introducing concepts, but then very applicable in following days and lessons to practice. We have had great classes integrating the smartboard into our manipulatives! The ideas keep flowing in!
