SMART Boards are so cool!

I have been having a blast subbing the last few days in the class I am working in. I am learning so much. I think I mentioned that I get to use the SMART Board in the class I am in.

Yesterday, we did a lesson on adjectives. I wrote two basic sentences and showed what a difference a few details can make in a sentence. We talked about how they can make the picture in your mind so much clearer. Then I had some pictures up and we described them. I found a picture of a double-decker bus on there. We talked about the picture they see when a bus is mentioned and then we added adjectives. Then I did the French flag. I also found pictures of three different houses. (They happened to be the homes of the three little pigs.) We were going to write a sentence about one of the houses so that it was evident which house we were talking about. The SMART Board is so cool because it was a quick and easy lesson to prep for. Any time I have seen it used in a classroom the students are very engaged!

Tomorrow is my last day in the classroom I am in. I will miss the class. They are a sweet bunch of students!

Me too. I just happened to get to use one for a few days. I have looked at what they cost. The price isn't so bad. It would be interesting to put that on my resume. I come with my very own SmartBoard. Do you think it would help?

My School Has One of them IN each Room and they are very fun to do stuff with Except the stuff does not work with the new windows and it goes mental some times.. I wish they used mac's but They use Dvi-i and the Projectors are vga Well the older Imacs are vga so i cant see a problem with that but also they should mount the proetor on the bord and not Mioor it so then the teacher can look at notes on there computer\ what ever junk they do on there pc.. But macs would be better to use for this kinda stuff. Also They Are very Cool I like that there are alost a big mouse pad thing.. We played Some math game on it and it was 2 player and we all took turns with the game and it was so cool..,, But vista crashed with the smart bord Ugh after...
