When using interactive online resources, often you may want students to respond to a question you have displayed with your LCD projector or on your interactive whiteboard. However, only one student at a time can use the interactive whiteboard to respond to a question. In my classroom, it was a concern of mine that the other 24 students would not be engaged and actively thinking about an answer to a question if they were not selected to use the whiteboard.

1. Whole Class Instruction: Use the first two websites to share correct upper case and lower case letter formation with your students. Have students practice forming a letter on paper at their desks. Then have the animated pencil show how to form that letter so students can check their work.
Individual Practice: Teachers with interactive whiteboards can have their students write a letter in virtual ink and then click on the letter on the screen to see if the animated pencil’s letter matches their formation.

Whole Class Activities: Help your students understand the concept of a clock by building one together using the first website. To keep all of your students involved, give each child an empty paper clock face and a set of numbers (1-12). Have the students place each number where they believe it belongs on the clock face before you answer together on screen. Once you have your clocks built, introduce the minute hand and the hour hand and discuss their meanings.
