Verb Viper

Verb Viper encourages the student to choose correct verb tenses, recognize correct verb forms, and recognize subject/verb agreement. A subject appears below the viper. The student reads the subject, notes whether the subject is singular or plural, and determines whether the verb closest to the viper agrees in tense and number with the subject and is a correct verb form. If the verb and subject match, the student feeds the verb to the viper.

Bar Graph/Chart

Every year my class makes bar graphs. We spend time coming up with themes for our graph, interviewing, and collecting data. The kids always have so much fun. Once we have followed these steps, we try to transfer it onto paper. That's where the confusion starts. Where does the title go? How many numbers? Using this site to create our bar graphs on the computer keeps everything nice and organized. Once it's done here, the kids have a visual to look at as well. Transferring it to paper is not so bad anymore. Voila!

Virtual Manipulatives

This is one of the coolest sites I have seen in awhile. We all use base ten blocks for some reason or another. Either place value, adding, subtracting, and many other reasons. At this site you can use base ten blocks to do all of this. You've got one, tens, hundreds, and thousands. My favorite part is it will regroup for you. If you have a tens rod, you can drag it into the ones block and it will split apart into 10 ones. This site is awesome!

Place Value Eaters

Ok, the first thing this made me think of was Pac-Man. The setup is a little different, but's it's similar. The student is a shirt (hoodie) that has to walk around eating numbers that have a certain digit in the ones place or tens place. EXAMPLE: Let's say the directions are 4 ONES. The player has to find a number like 34 or 64 to eat. While you are doing this, you have to avoid getting eaten by the ghost.
