Remember War, the game where each player flips over a card and the person with the highest card gets them both? We put a spin on it for math, putting fractions on the cards to be compared (picture and numerical versions). Later next week we are going to use decimals, and then mix the stacks to compare both.
Language Arts comparing:
Number of syllables
Number of nouns/adjectives/verbs in a sentence or paragraph
Number of protons/neutrons/electrons
Age of trees based on tree ringsTemperature by reading thermometers
I would love to hear your suggestions as well!

The concept is that you draw on the fabric with washable markers, when your done, throw it in the washer and you get a brand new blank canvas!
I came up with a cheap knock-off version: $5 flat bedsheets from Walmart, cut in half! My class used them as "posters" to display student objective strengths based on their previous testing data.
The kids loved the novelty of being able to write on fabric! (And I felt a little bit greener not wasting paper!)

I just happened to stumble on WatchKnowLearn it has an indexed of over 20,000 educational videos, placing them into a directory of over 3,000 categories. Their videos are available without any registration or fees to teachers in the classroom and to students at home 24/7.
