Games from SuperTeacherTools – Part 2

October 15, 2014

Recently, I told you about http://www.SuperTeacherTools.net. This is where you can make great review games like Jeopardy and Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

Now learn to download the game template and have it stored locally so you do not have to depend on internet.

  1. Go to www.superteachertools.net.
  2. Scroll down to see and select Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
  3. Scroll down and select Download.
  4. Save the Mac or PC file in a new folder. It is an .exe file so you probably cannot install this on school administered computers. I use my own laptop for this.
  5. Now click on the url and edit a game to suit your needs.
    http://www.superteachertools.com/millionaire/online/game20.php
  6. Once the game is edited, scroll to the bottom and fill in the required information including the verification.  I found I just needed to insert the verification number when I chose a pre-made game.
  7. I downloaded the text file, (seen here on the left) and put it into the same folder as the game template. That is really important!
  8. I ran the game and then was asked to input the name of the text file.

Activity Card of the Month – October 2014

Card #5 Add Your Voice to SMART Notebook

This month, I will show or remind you how to add your voice to SMART Notebook.

I love all the ways this helps me in the classroom. Maybe, the students are working independently on the SMART Board and they need instructions but they don’t read well enough. Sometimes, I want to add sound effects for a guessing game. If I am away, I can make a greeting for my students that the supply teacher can play. (Get a guest login for temporary staff!) Teachers of other languages love to read sentences so that students can hear them over and over… as many times as they need. The students can create talking books. The list goes on!

Share your ideas.
