Flashcards - Problems

Flashcards is a great tool to use by pupils and by teachers! At Colégio Monte Flor we are huge fans of this web 2.0 tool created by Miscrosoft. You just need a windows live/hotmail account. If you don't have it's easy to creat one.

This year, our 3rd graders have been using a lot and so we decided to create a Flashcard Deck with some funny problems you can solve during Easter Vacations!

Access this Flashcards Deck by clickin here.

Mouse Mischief Activity

Dear Math Fans and Partners
We bring you here a very cool PowerPoint Presentation to use with Microsoft Mouse Mischief! We already posted on this blog a resource like this one before.
For those who don't remember here is a brief description of what is Mouse Mischief and the link to download it.

Mouse Mischief integrates into Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007, letting you insert questions, polls, and drawing activity slides into your lessons. Students can actively participate in these lessons by using their own mice to click, circle, cross out, or draw answers on the screen.

Here is the resource.

You should download Mouse Mischief first, install it on your computer and then you can download the presentation by clicking on the bottom right corner of the presentation above and then click on Download . Follow all these steps, other way you'll not be able to use the interactive presentation.

There are 24 students in the 5a form. Outside  -24 degrees below zero. Guess-how many students came to school? Correct answer- zero:-)

So-sorry, but we are taking a short break. My students are at home and we can't post any new tasks. Let's wait for better weather. Have a nice week:-)
