Planet Turtle

You'll love this engaging math software!

Click on any of the pictures to view the video. Once you hit the landing page, be sure to click the triangular play button as the screen will show up completely green.
Take a guided tour of Planet Turtle.
A review of Planet Turtle, the first serious instructional system to use the same kind of technology that keeps children glued to their video games.
We will demonstrate the Planet Turtle world - where students choose HOW they want to practice - and the simple and powerful teacher tools to direct and track WHAT they practice.

Students develop mathematical fluency in a fun and engaging environment.
Planet Turtle individualizes content for each student as they play, using advanced algorithms to promote students from one topic to the next as their learning progresses. Learning improves as the system continually reacts to their performance and provides additional exposure and review on necessary topics. Since the questions are interchangeable in activities, Planet Turtle serves up appropriate content while still letting students pick their favorite games!

Custom Student AvatarStudent Community Interaction

Teachers can set up Planet Turtle to match their classroom program.
Working behind the scenes in this virtual world, teachers can direct the math topics based on the needs of their class. They have access to detailed reports, both on individuals and the whole class, and they can search for and assign specific math topics. Planet Turtle then integrates the math content according to their directives. This unique feature of Planet Turtle enables the teacher to direct student learning, leaving game choice up to the student!
Planet Turtle includes pre-programmed correlations to math programs like Everyday Mathematics, Math Connects, and other leading programs. Teachers will also find correlations to national math conventions.

Students stay involved with learning through a contemporary gaming experience they enjoy. 
The virtual world of Planet Turtle uses the latest massively-multiplayer technology to create a rich learning environment. As students play and explore, they are rewarded with new features and an ever-expanding world. Game types range from strategy-based to racing the clock, and new games become available as rewards for learning success! This immersive experience has the power to engage students in practicing skills far more intensively than any printed program.

Treasures Sight Words

Hi Everyone!

It's been a hit and miss this past 6 months with posting and products. We've had lots of health issues in our family and it's taken me away from posting.

If you're still following, I have updated a slide show of sight words my students use in the classroom. You can download them here! These sight words follow the Treasures Kindergarten series in sequential order. I intentionally placed the words on the black line dividing the green grass and blue sky to help kids get the understanding of those letters than go up "high" and go down "low." If you don't know about it already, Dr. Jean has some great alphabet songs to teach this concept.

Have a great day!

100th Day of School & FREEBIE

Have you already celebrated the 100th Day of School?

Well, we have not! It’s coming up at the end of this week. Our kiddos were very excited to complete a project as homework and I’ve included the information sheet here.

As part of the project, I asked parents to help their child create a display of 100 items. In addition, the parent and child had to work together practicing collections of 10 and thus counting by 10’s to 100.
Take a look at these wonderful projects and if you’d like, download the information sheet for your students as well.

What a fun way to celebrate the 100th day! And, cover many math and language arts standards, as well as involve parents who are unable to volunteer.
