Useful Websites for Teachers Provided by Macon County or NC
Website: http://www.learnnc.org/scos http://www.learnnc.org/scos On this website, you can access lesson plans for your grade level specifically aligned with the NCSCS. For example, Graphing with 2 nd graders…I found a lesson where we made a concrete graph with M & M’s, made a paper graph with it, then graphed it in the computer lab.
Website: http://www.linkslearning.org/Kids/_i ndex.html http://www.linkslearning.org/Kids/_i ndex.html On this website, you can go view illustrated math lessons that have short activities to go with the lessons. Symmetry is one example. They show all aspects of symmetry, then give short activities for the kids to interact with. They also have read along audio stories. Science and Study Skills are coming soon.
Website: http://brainpopjr.com/http://brainpopjr.com/ On this website, you can do whole lessons to go with Math, Science, Health, Reading, Writing, and Social Studies. You can show short videos to go with each lesson, do online activities, print hard copy activities, and also print easy/hard quizzes. This is one site I thought was most useful.
Website: http://www.brainpop.com/http://www.brainpop.com/ This is the same as BrainPop Jr, it just covers from about 4 th grade up through high school.
Website: http://streaming.discoveryeducation.com/index.cfm http://streaming.discoveryeducation.com/index.cfm On this website, you can download videos or video segments to go with your lessons. Most of you are probably familiar with this, so I won’t elaborate.
Website: http://puzzlemaker.discoveryeducat ion.com/ http://puzzlemaker.discoveryeducat ion.com/ On this website, you can create numerous puzzle type activities using words from spelling, vocabulary, etc. I use this website a lot to create word searches with spelling words, reading vocabulary words, and science words.
Closing and Assignment At this time, please pick one website to navigate through. Pick one way this website can be used in your classroom. Design a lesson plan from that website that you can use in your classroom at some time in the remainder of the year. Share that lesson plan with the group.
