I love collecting great resources I find on the web. On my website, in the Teacher Zone, you can find two different web pages I've organized to help you. This page is curriculum related and this is organized by state/country and school district.
To get students' attention, I often use the SMART Notebook file with the interactive timer slowly counting down. I don't have to say a word. Students know what to do. It's a great, easy classroom management tool.
Here's some tips to insert an interactive timer rom the SMART Notebook Gallery into your SMART Notebook file.
I hope this tip has helped. Let me know if you have a question or a question about how-to do something with your SMART Board, let me know and I'll do a blog post. To get some of the SMART Board lessons I've created, visit my TpT store and click the category "SMART Board." Enjoy your SMART Board!
