Padlet Wall

I love to have competitions in my classroom and Padlet walls make them easy to do virtually.  If you are in person you can also do this.  Last year, we had a gingerbread man competition this way.  The students drew, created, baked, or somehow came up with a gingerbread man.  I learned a lot about my students during these competitions, one of my students is an amazing artist and we could see her drawings this way, some of my students loved to bake and we were able to see their creations.  The video will show you how to use the padlet wall set up.  

After the voting ended, I had them prove it was their creation.  This allowed them to show off their work while also letting the post be anonymous so no one voted based on who they liked.  

If your school is doing SEL(social, emotional, learning) padlets are a great way for kids to express themselves without others knowing who said it.

Long Division in Google Docs

  I was making a long division worksheet for my students in Google Docs when I realized that it wasn't under equations. Here's how to insert it.  This does not look very pretty so I have another video on how I do it in Google Sheets which takes longer but looks nicer. 

Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template

  This template is set for 3 sets of answers.  I have the answers that are currently set, you will need to reformat them to use with your content.   Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template Be on the lookout for this activity given 2 ordered pairs and asking for slope, y-intercept, and the equation of a line.  I'm also formatting this for converting between percents, decimals, and fractions.  If you want to reformat it before I post the above activities here is how. 

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
