Whats for Lunch part 2

May 9th, 2011 by Jimk

Really, the original request from Judy Stu was a moveable button activity. I did not  have my brain wrapped properly to make it work. While I as cleaning my fish pond on Saturday a concept came to mind…Testing it on Monday led me to abject failure, BUT several cups of coffee later I was  inspired to create the final working moveable button Whats for Lunch activity. (including a fab video for adapting the original layout)

Whats for lunch

May 6th, 2011 by Jimk

Yet another morning meeting option is to talk about “Whats for lunch”. I have created a picture button activity to build a lunch menu for the month of May. Certainly changes can be made to fit your needs. At this link http://www.mediafire.com/?v3og6a15m8574 you will find the template and a video describing the process.

Counting Money

March 17th, 2011 by Jimk

I have created an activity that deals with counting and displaying money values. It is a generic tool that has as many uses as you have needs/ideas. You may download it here http://www.mediafire.com/?9bcgroyn4oo6b. This is a moveable button activity, the graphics are as real as the US Mint  and Bureau of Printing and Engraving will allow. Any thoughts? Be the first to comment…

TouchMath and Boardmaker

February 18th, 2011 by Jimk

TouchMath is one manner to teach counting. Travel here to take advantage of some Touchmath activities, including a TouchMath Calculator. Certainly not the last word as this is a work in progress…

Out on a limb… The Boardmaker Plus Suggestion Box…

Here’s the deal, some of what I have created is useful…the rest might have been an exercise in humoring myself.

I am making this offer…If you have ideas and need help, suggestions, etc., to pull off  a Boardmaker activity,  drop me a line. I function  best  in a team environment anyway.  If you don’t want to leave it in a comment, Contact me directly jkauppil@muskegonisd.org  use the subject line of Boardmaker Activity.  Hope to hear something.
