I am in Love with my Smartboard and Smartboard Freebies!

A few weeks ago, our district gave us the best gift - a Smartboard and training to go with it! I am in love! It has been so much fun to find activities to help my little kindergartners learn!

I am a firm believer in hands on activities and this fits right in! I know it is not traditional hands on, but the kids do interact more than a paper and pencil activity. I love finding activities that they have to problem solve and figure out the answer. It has been so much fun to "play" with!

I love using it as one of my center rotations {and I know the kids do to!}

I have found some great sites with some great Smartboard activities!

Just this week I Googled Kindergarten Basic Needs and Wants for Smartboard and found some to use that were free! {here is the link}

Then I decided to look for Daily Calendar activities and found another great file {click here}.  But I also saw Mrs. Will's blog about Smartboard Calendars {here}.  All free!!!

I was also Googling Kindergarten Smartboard Activities and found Sheppard Software, and also this great site -{click here}.


We have been reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom in my classroom and we had to have some Smartboard fun so I found these {click here}

but of course, I wanted to have more fun, so I had my sweeties make these:


{My super good teacher friend, Joy, drew these and I had my cuties cut out the coconuts - four because we were learning about the number four - and then they had to pick out the letters of their name using foam letters and glue them on - Aren't they adorable?}


Then, last year, I won my school $500 from TeachHub.com and I bought these great Smartboard activities for my school from Lakeshore {and I see that they are having a buy one get one 50% off sale right now using coupon code SOFTWARE! - Expires 10/31/2012}


and


Okay, so what Smartboard software or link do you love?
Please share!

Hi! I'm so glad I found your blog! I'm the only teacher with a Smart Board at my school, and I've been just using the starfall.com for calendar time. I'd love to try the calendars that you found.
Thank you!

Wow- smartboards! We use Mimio in our district. We can open up Smartboard software with it. Gotta love the interactive whiteboards!
