I love this game! It's quite challenging (even the first level!). The purpose is to break objects and fill holes in order for the beetles to roll away the dung balls. Make sure you read the instructions for each level! Have fun, and I hope you have a great weekend!
Happy Monday! Of course you know it's April Fool's Day, but don't worry- I'm not pulling any pranks this year!
Storyboard That is an awesome website that lets students create digital stories using a variety of characters, backgrounds, and text bubbles. This site would be great for illustrating a story together on the SMART Board. You can do this for free; however, you may also want to check out Storyboard That for Educators as it gives you more features like private storyboards and unlimited usage (14-day free trial and $25.95/year after that). Check out the free Lesson Plans as well. Here's one for A Walk in the Desert (2nd grade Reading Street story). Thanks to the many folks sharing this resource on Twitter today!
Dino Hunter is a great game for practicing dictionary skills! Find all the different dinosaurs by selecting the correct group of guide words for each word given. Have a great weekend!
