On to Monday Made it with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics!

I have been playing around with layouts, graphics, borders, etc. trying to familiarize myself with this process. I took the plunge and made iPods with classroom jobs. You can grab your copy of it at my TpT store for free. I only ask that you leave feedback :)



Then I thought to myself, I should spice up some of my board games that the kiddos use on the Promethean board. I decided to start with one theme and create as many as I can. My first theme is robots. 

This first board game is a template. All the features have been activated {action objects such as page reset, jumping back to another page}. The only thing you have to do is type the questions and answers. All the directions are on in the note section of the flipchart. Click on either picture to download from my TpT store. 



For those that don't want to create questions, I have also started creating skill-specific game boards. This one is to review customary measurement. Every week I create a new game focused on the skill being taught. One of my centers is called Math with IWB in which the students, in their group, compete to get the correct answers and reach the finish line first. Get here.
