Our 7 Generation Games Education Site
I’ve been wanting to do this for the longest time. I know whenever I am teaching a class there never seems to be enough time for anything. I need more time to create lesson plans, more time to make videos or PowerPoints to explain concepts. I often found myself thinking,
“Teachers need a 25-hour day!”
Well, that, a glass of Chardonnay, an unlimited number of pencils (what DO kids do with their pencils?) and a lifetime supply of chocolate.
You’re on your own for the wine and chocolate, but I can help you out with the time. We have hundreds of videos, PowerPoint presentations and lesson plans. I thought, why not organize those to be easily accessible to teachers?
When organization is a battle
We get it. It’s not enough to have that presentation on long division or how to use a timeline with dates before the year 0. Sometimes you need it 10 minutes before the bell rings and your next class starts trooping in. That’s what this site is for.
Every day, we will be publishing new classroom resources. Lots of these are examples of math problems because I have found that students learn best when they have tangible examples.
We also will will have a lot of resources for history, particular Native American history, because there just isn’t enough accurate information available for elementary and middle school.
Most importantly, all of it will be tagged and categorized so that when school starts you can find it easily.
Maybe you’re that teacher who had all your lesson plans done in May…
Then you’re a fictitious creature like a mermaid or a unicorn. Perhaps you have a meticulous filing system with every student’s name on a printed label. You have all of your learning tools for math in a set of hanging drawers and all your supplies for posters in another. Everything is color-coded and organized by the week. It can’t hurt to check out our games. As we focus on improving test scores, we make math fun!
Check back here often or sign up for our newsletter to get the resources sent to your email.
Teachers Pay Teachers
We also have a Teachers Pay Teachers site. We would be delighted to hear any comments or suggestions!
