Infinite Cloner

Hi all.
Infinite Cloner came up recently in a conversation with Melissa and Michelle. It is such a fantastic feature. Basically you can right click on any object, drawing, or word and select infinite cloner. From then on, any time you click on that object, you drag away a copy of the object. You can do this as many times as you like (which you figured out with the name and all.) If you want to move or alter the object, you first need to unclick the infinite cloner.

Many of you already knew that, so this is a reminder about all the great ways this can be used. During phonics we build words using infinite cloners on letters. I was going to post a picture of my screen, but I'm having trouble with that this evening. I know other second grade teachers (Jon and Sara) that use infinite cloner on coins and base ten blocks.

How have you used infinite cloner or what ideas do you have?

Infinite Cloner is a feature that is built into SmartBoard, right? Is it also on Promethean? I have seen Sara use it with a place value lesson. Love to see the screen shot.

In first grade we use infinite cloner on our monthly weather calendar.

"What's the weather like today? Like today? Like today? What's the weather like today? Today is ____."

It is makes me laugh on the days when the weather is not sunny, because most kids are used to it being sunny, they say it anyway! Luckily our meteorologist corrects us!
