### I’m flippin’ out!

I’m flippin’ out (bun not in a Jeff Lewis way though!) I am making flip charts!  I went to a 2 day (INTENSE) training for ActivInspire and Promethean Active Boards.  We sat from 8-4 for 2 days learning all the ins and outs of the software.  I had a good idea where to start since I have had my board for 2 years, but I mostly figured things out on my own.  I was glad to find that there was an easier way to do most things and they’re all pretty easy to me now! {Even containers!!}

I was inspired by Debbie Diller’s Math Workstation book to create a few flipchart pages.  They’re pretty simple because I want to be able to share them with other teachers in my district, but take a peek:

There are 2 options for this one – at first the children can pull a colored dot (duplicate), and then later use the highlighter.

Super duper simple – just grab a coconut and match it up with the domino.

This one is using a cute little revealer (magic ink) that I downloaded from promethean.  Again, super simple, but great for beginning number concepts.

With these 3 pages, I wanted to use the dot sheets that Fran made over at Kindergarten Crayons.  This is a good way to introduce as a whole group.  The children will put the numbers in the right order first, and then count out the correct number of cookies (which are hidden “in” the jar) to the correct spots.

This one uses the hidden feature. The children tap the apple to reveal a side of a die, count the dots, and write the correct number.

This is the 5 frame game that is in Debbie Diller’s book.  This page is intended to use for whole group teaching and to teach the game.

Here is the game for partners.  I played it with my 9 year old daughter, and she thought it was super fun! Simple, but fun!

Spin the spinner and add the correct number of apples to the wagon.

This one looks very blah, doesn’t it?! But, I was able to master containers!!! The shapes are nice and colorful, so once they are up there it looks a little bit prettier!

Grab and graph – the shapes are hidden behind the square.  I added the math talk bubbles so that the kids (ahem…I) remember to use that wording!

Same concept as the apple tree, just using pennies.

And as a partner game.

What do you think? I am still working my way through chapter 4, but I am LOVING this book so far!

I have one more thing I need to admit….I had my first back to school dream of the summer on Saturday. Seriously.  So. Not. Ready.  It was the usual horror story of not being ready – my room still in boxes, nothing ready, the kids were HORRIBLY naughty.   Ugh, I hate those dreams, and it is way too early in the summer to start!

1. Are you going to share these awesome tool for the smartboard? I would love to use them!

Thanks for sharing!

3. Holy cow. You've been busy! I have the same question {and name...ha!} as the first comment. Are Promethean board & Smart Board activities interchangeable? I just got my Smart Board in May and don't know much about it yet. :) Thanks for sharing!

5. These look awesome! You have been one busy lady! Oh, and I've already had "the dream" too! Yuck!

6. I LOVE these! You have inspired me.
I'm Joliprinting your post so I can savor these wonderful activities.

7. *love* Jeff Lewis! Your math activities are pretty cool, too =) I like to present my kids with activities that aren't too detailed (especially at the beginning of the year) ...so these would be perfect! Thanks for sharing!!

8. Sorry to do this anonymously but something is up with my google connection... These are absolutely fabulous. I have a new promethean board and would love this kind of training. I know how to run it but now I want to learn how to make the flipcharts! Did the company come out and do the training? Could you post more info about it? Thanks!

9. Can you please email these to me!? I love them!! Kclark@bataviacsd.org

10. These are so great for number sense! What great activities to use on the Smartboard. Will you be sharing them?

11. Sadly, the fabulous promethean board activities can NOT be used on a Smartboard. Smartboard can go to Promethean, but not the other way around. :( I have a Smartboard, and am always finding great Promethean board things... *sigh*

12. Thanks beachliesl - I thought that was the case! If anyone is interested in this flipchart, send me an e-mail.

13. Thank you so much for sharing..these look awesome!! I am loving the book, too!

14. Absolutely love these! I need to learn to make these. I would love a copy.

15. I would love a copy of these for my promethean board. They are fabulous!

16. Sorry to post annonymous but something is wrong with my google act. I was hoping to get a copy of your flipcharts. I also noticed you had a calendar flipchart in one of your April posts. Is there any way you could share this flipchart. I am working on finishing a flipchart to go along with my calendar binders and yours was a great flipchart. I am hoping to figure out these flipcharts and create some to share as well.
Thanks so much!!

I just wanted to say thanks for all the wonderful ideas and inspiration that you give to us! We've been using Activboards for 5 years and haven't been able to create anything this engaging! What was the name of the conference that you went to? My colleagues and I would love to attend it sometime. If you are still sharing these files, I'd love to have a copy of them. Thanks so much!

43. Hello,
I have visited your blog many times and am a follower...but I hadn't ever seen this page before! Maybe that's because I didn't have a Mimio before! It's going to be set up over Spring Break, I was told. Are you willing to share these files? I would LOVE to use them.
Thanks,
